    Default Adjusting buoyancy of plastics

    Just wondered if anyone has ever messed around injecting air or adding flakes or Ratlers to adjust sinking rates of plastics paired with jigs to slow down retrieves?

    I have used rattlers and flakes but no air and have seen no significant difference in all rate. I use lighter jigs for a slower fall rate at times.

    I was thinking you go out of your way to not have air in plastics from what I’ve learned.

    I remember some of the bass guys putting some air in tails of plastic worms with a syringe to make the tail float a little off the bottom.

    I have fish with a lot of plastic worms for bass And always use floating Plastic .I have never heard of putting the air In the Tail It would be awful tricky Doing that I would like to see it done.???

    I believe one would be better off adjusting jig head size to control fall and retrieve than tinkering with the plastic. Would the plastic not weigh the same if one was to inject air into it?? Maybe if you did it while injecting the hot plastic but how would you control that? Adding flake, rattlers or what not would just add to the weight of he plastic.
