Tube & Tail

Another little project I've been playing around with is a 7" tube. These are Tora tube and were designed primarily for bass fishing. I poured a couple different styles of tails for them. One of the tails is a fish shaped forked tail and the other is a large reaper style tail, After experimenting with various internal harnesses I've settled on cable as the best option. These have a 150 lb. test, 21 strand cable as the rigging. The hooks are Mustads, the chin hook is a 3/0, the center hook is a 7/0 and the tail hook is a 2/0. These are about 13" or so and weigh 4-5 ounces.
Here's some pics of some that are unpainted, some I did a little painting on and some that are painted and waiting to be assembled.
