These 2 1/2" and 3" Rippers were done as samples for a fella who originally asked about smaller crappies baits. Somehow the conversation went to smallies and these transpired from that conversation.
They're just clear plastic stuffed with Partycrasher string glitter then infused well with Do-It's uv enhancement powder.
Since I made quite a few of the 1.5" Thump-Its for this gentleman I made up these as a sample for smallies and when I checked them this morning in shaded sunlight they were full of color from the glitter, largely because they're full of the glitter. By full I mean like a heaping teaspoon in a 6 ounce batch of clear plastic. In the sun the UV enhancer kicks in and the same show of baits in full sun are a nifty thin transparent blue that almost seems to glow with the glitter flashing thru it. Even a blind bass should be able to see these.
The Thump-Its in the 1.5" have chartreuse tails which makes for a super crappie bait right about now. I also made 2 1/2" and 3 1/2" Thump -Its as samples in the Partycrasher, but with all the ridges and rings for reflection these Ringers just stole the show.
