Does anyone have a Terminator.

Early 3" timber lure modelled after what appears to be a Nilsmaster?

Killalure modelled on the Spearhead.

The one I've got is plastic.

I am pretty sure they were.
The original (wood) was called "terminator"
the abs version was called "terminator II"

Painted bib
On a card with "heat shrink" over it.
Heat shrink is not a necessity but thin painted bib is a must.

The first ones were made of something that looked like liquid nails when it goes off, looks very much like timber.
Terminator 2 had the improved bib with the locking pin and a clear bib, and they didn't look as good alround.

My sources tell me...
The terminator was moulded from "foam" in Aisa and sent to dave for painting.
I think that they are still as collectable as his timber lure of the same vintage.
(this could be the first aussie lure that was outsourced to Aisa)
