Dieter Maiberg Swimbaits

Post by Lure-Nut » Fri Feb 26, 2010 9:01 pm

Received today an awesome set of Dieter Maiberg swimbait's. Simply, they exceeded my expectations in every way - they are a nicely weighted lure, the smaller swimbait is 100mm and 20 gms and the larger 130 mm and 36 gms.The workmanship is outstanding and the swimming action (pool test) was stunning. One other impressive feature was the way the 2 piece swimbait slowed sank in a perfect horizontal position thumbsupsmilie thumbsupsmilie

I can only see one issue .... they are simply too good to be fished lol lol crazysmilie

Thankyou Diemai bowsmilie

They need hooks on them to catch fish.

Very nice work in those swimbaits.

Just saw this headline and I could not believe my eyes , ...........makes me blush and is rather a bit embarrassing to me !

Anyway , mates , thanks a lot for your kind words , I do appreciate them very much , though my humble work is lightyears away from perfection !

I can't make up my mind on investing in airbrush gear trying to achieve a more professional look of my baits , these modelmaking enamels are something that I'm used to from my childhood days assembling "Airfix" military models , and I also haven't yet taken the time for detailed carvings on my lures , I am rather more interested in technical aspects both of proper function of lures and working procedures of shaping their blanks .

Mass production of one and the same model becomes boring to me very soon , I always like to try out new and different designs , constructions and models , no matter what type of a lure this would be !

But nevertheless I am feeling kinda honoured by your statements in here ,..... words that I never did expect to hear about my humble trials to fool predatory fish , ........meantime in a rather more international scale now !

Thank you so much , .........greetz , Dieter howdy

Dieter,
Your lures look good mate, I'm knocking out a few barra lures, I'm retired have time on my hands, don't sell them just give to barra fishing mates.
Thought I'd get an air-brush one day, they're cheap enough but the compressors are dear. Anyway, I've been getting reject auto acrylics from a student mate of my sons who works part-time at Autobarn. I'm finding my finishes achieved by pressure-pac are turning out OK, I'll post a few pics in the relevant area in the future. Might delay the air-brush, having fun without.
Regards, Tony (Wulagi, NT).

@ barraguru

I usually utilize spraycans for painting as well , but last autumn I had some issues with a bunch of about 10 lures , had to strip all paint down on them again , as the paint layers had started to crack up just as I was about to topcoat them -duh !

Never had that happen to that extend , don't even know , why it happened , since I am using these paint cans for years , ..........I can only hazard a guess , that I did not let the initial layers underneath dry thoroughly ??? .

Anyway , since I haven't touched those spraycans again , the anger about the messed up lures sits deep zippedsmilie .............but some day I will surely try again thumbsupsmilie lol !

greetz , Dieter howdy
