I've got some but haven't put em on plugs yet. Maybe I'll do it before the season gets busy.

can you put a coat or 2 of epoxy over them Mike? Do you think it would stick?

I bet you could epoxy over it if you wanted to. Not sure how well it would stick though but there only about a buck so if they get destroyed you can just peel it off and put another one on.

It's just heat shrink so when it starts peeling who knows. There is no glue or anything to hold them on the body, just their own tight grip.

I've seen several that have been epoxied and they all look good. They're cool for sure. I didn't order any but they were cheaper than I expected.

When I get around to ordering some, I am going to try rotating one 90 degrees on a spook/surface plug so the mackeral profile and color are more visible from below. Might more closely resemble an injured baitfish. Thanks for sharing, Mike. (You want more of those spooks?)

Nice. I was just going to start a thread to see if anyone would be interested in a trade couple of my plugs for them painting some of mine. I still use rattle cans and am not very artistic. Anybody interested? Maybe I'll start a new thread anyways.
Any particular place to get these? Very interested. Thanks

Those spooks are great Ross, if I loose this one I'll hit you up for another. Caught lots of fish on that
