Thoughts on the willow blade vs French? Look good, btw!
They spin a little differently. I caught kings and cohos on them so they do work. Caught quite a few in Lansing this year on them. Actually did very well truth be told, I had quite a few double digit days.
Actually now that I think about it I think I'm down to only one of each of those as those pesky Kings decided to take me into some wood while I was fishing on the grand this year and I lost them
I think the french blades spin the easiest and slowest, I never had much luck with the Colorado's on inlines. I'm not saying they dont work great, I just never got them dialed in so I stuck with the french style.
French blades are my favorite. I’ve never really gotten the Colorado blades to spin all the time seems like they go than stop than go. Metal Colorado worked better than plastic ones. I’ve been thinking of building some size 5-6 inline spinners for lake trout. I would start with traditional laker colors. I have some buddies from out East and they the lakers hammer them while trolling behind a dodger

Deep cup Colorado are probably the easiest to spin. Keep in mind they tend to run higher in the water column too.
First prototype with lead bullet weights standing in for the lure bodies. It looks good in the water.
Have you considered a split ring on the hook for easy change out? Downside is it makes the bait longer obviously. Wire is cheap so I guess no big deal to remake.
Yes, they will all have double split rings.
First five ready for prime time.
Those are some good looking spinners. I used to make my own spinners for steelhead. I used silver plated blades from a place in Oregon. Silver plate has the best reflection qualities when in water. Mepps uses silver plated blades.
Hard to tell... how heavy is each weight?
The single body ones ended up around 7/8th oz, and the double body ones closer to 1 5/8th using a junk scale my wife has for the kitchen.
So that's the whole lure?
