    Default beetle spin seller

    Anyone sell beetle spins? And who has the best bodies for them?

    Make you're own. Buy the blades separately:

    Cabela's Online Store - Quality Hunting, Fishing, Camping and Outdoor Gear



    … and then use whatever jig head/body you like. (Buy 4" bass finesse worms and cut them into four 1" pieces.)

    That said, I can't remember the last time I used the spinner blade. The jig and plastic body is all you need, IMO.

    Hopefully I will have the same luck, but gonna have a couple on hand just to better my odds in case they don't like just the jig.

    I buy the wires and blades and make my own. It is not hard and fun, sky is the limit for possibilities. Then I use my own jigs and ties. Have a little fun.

    Everybody has their own preferences...What I like is a 00 colorado or a 0 willow on a 1/32.
    A 0 colorado and a 1 willow on a 1/16.
    A 1 colorado and a 1 willow on a 1/8.
    A 1 colorado and a 2 willow on a 1/4.
    These are blade sizes I like on a road runner....Would be about the same on a L arm wire spinner (beatle spin).
    Some competive prices are at Jann's Netcraft on blades,split rings,and L arm wire forms.
    Just a comment.The L arm wire spinner adds some "weed-proofing" to your jig and the fish do like them.

    I use Roadrunner heads and some Pony heads in 1/48, 1/32 and 1/16 with a few 1/8. I use the blades I got from Blakemore for the 1/8 heads, but I use the blades they sent or I use some Willow and Colorado blades for the other sizes.

    First know not all blade Mfg's are the same. Example is one says size 0 but the other says 00 for that blade and are equal. I use Worth Blades and their smallest Willow blade is #0 and I use them on 1/48 Pony heads which in truth are right at 1/32 real weight as are the 1/32 Roadrunner heads. Then for the 1/32 Oz Pony heads which in truth weight is 1/24 I use a #1 Willow or a #0 Colorado. I will stop here as much of this is a personal thing and the main thing is you don't want to use a blade so large it flips the bait around and around or sideways as you reel it in.

    If your using tiny jigs then no need to use larger than the smallest that company makes in most cases!

    I have been producing 1/32,1/16,1/8,and 1/4 underspins many years and the question was asked...I gave my honest answer that I stand by 100%.
    Willows and colorados were the only blades mentioned without any mention of Indianas,Swing,French,and many, many more.
    I have never had any desire to produce 1/48 's as I do not care to fish that size underspin.
    Apparently you like/sell Worth blades.Maybe they're good blades.
    Personally I have used thousands of Do-it,Cabela,Barlow's,Lure Parts Online,Jann's Netcraft,and several others.
    Use whatever size blade hikes your skirt and I will do the same.Neither you or I am wrong in our preferences.

    Since I have lots of baldes I am just gonna order the wires and make my own, can put whatever I want on them then. I can make up some of the the roadrunners I have also and see what works best in any given situation.
