Buzz King
« on: January 10, 2012, 02:18:37 PM »
This year I plan on using the buzzbait more to regain my confidence in them. I made a mod to one last year and painted the blade white which helped me land more bass on a buzzbait last year than the 2 prior years.

Here's one I just built:

3/8 oz Tri-Wing buzzbait:

Interesting that you mention painting the blade, John. I hadn't thought of trying that, but maybe now I will  ;)

Thanks Ray. I have used colored plastic blades in the past, but never gave a thought to throwing a quick coat of paint on a metal blade to give it a different look.

Definitely gonna have to do some experimenting this year with different buzzbait blades!

I've never used a tri-wing blade before, so I'm going to give this a whirl first before I make some more. I did noticed that I got a lot more strikes on a painted blade as apposed to a standard aliminum finished blade.

I made a couple of other mods to this to give it some more sweal and thinned out the skirt a bit for more casting distance....we'll see.

I tried the plastic blades and thought that it caught more air resistance on the cast as well as it was a very quiet buzzbait. Not all bad tho.

Tri-wing plastic buzzbait blades are definitely a quieter, smoother blade.

Where can you buy tri-winged blades? I can't find them to save my life. My buddy gave me his Buzz King that was unfishable and I used the blade from it to make the one I posted. If you have a source for tri-wings, please let me know, I would def purchase some.
