Favorite hollow paddle tails

Postby Hogsticker2 » Tue May 22, 2018 7:08 pm

The only ones I use are the Fish Arrow air bag shads. I'm looking for something very similar that I can source in the States, TW, etc. Every one I've tried is just a hard, stiff piece of plastic. The air bag shad is really supple and soft, yet maintains above average durability. Any ideas?

If they're too stiff, simply boil them (or just the tail) for 30-60sec depending on how soft you want them.

Last resort. Too much work. Plus generally speaking, if they are softer to begin with, they typically have better action / movement at slower speeds.

They do have a better action at slower speeds when boiled.
