Bob Pink asked the acid test question on whether these will ride side ways because of the epoxy..These are winter experiments so all I can do is a sink test and as you can see they sit perfectly in the water so the epoxy is not heavy and the hook bend acts as a perfect keel...keeping them up in the right position.

Dennis, these are your everyday foam popper boddies... any will do... infact I saw some extrodinary poppers made by Jay Horton out of Balsa wood... I liked that and will get some to work with.
