More About The Lures:
Every Hammer Lure is made from a 3 part epoxy resin material. This material is very durable and buoyant. Unlike wood, resin lures will never water log or lose their buoyancy. Each lure is hand poured into custom made molds to ensure consistency in shape and weight. Stainless steel screw eye hook hangers are 1 ½” long and .092 mm heavy. Screw eyes hold much tighter in resin than in any wood. Every screw eye is cushioned by a #6 stainless washer which prevents body wear and gives the bait a nice finished look. Rear split rings are #6 stainless rated at 250lbs. The hooks on the 5 ½” and 6” models are 5/0 VMC 9617 BR 2X strong trebles. The hooks on the larger Bero Sledge Hammer and Mustad 3551 8/0 belly hook and 7/0 tail hook. We strongly recommend T-ing all belly hooks to prevent hook rashing. Each lure is hand airbrush painted and finished off with 2 heavy applications of clear epoxy coating. The patterns and artistry speak for themselves.
Care of Your HAMMERS:
To properly care for your Hammer lures, we recommend that you always store them in a cool dry shaded area. Any lure could potentially deteriorate or bubble if stored in direct sunlight inside of a tackle box or not.
All lures are pond tested, however may require some slight tuning when being trolled. If the lure is running left or right, simply turn the lead eye screw slightly the opposite way the lure is running with a pair of needle nose pliers. You may also slightly bend the lead eye screw the opposite way for the same effect.
I personally do not like to use split rings on the belly of lures due to the extreme hook rash that split rings will cause. You will notice that Hammer Lures have very little to no hook rash which extends the life and look of the lures. However, we still strongly recommend T-ing all belly hooks to ensure virtually NO hook rash whatsoever. Some prefer to apply their own split rings to all hook hangers. However, Hammer Lures will not be responsible for any lures with excessive amounts of hook rash due to applying your own split rings or not T-ing the belly hooks.

Custom Lure Painting:
I get many requests for custom lure painting and re paints. Yes, I do repaint other lures with some exceptions. I do not repair broken or badly damaged baits or I do not strip paint or old finish off of baits. My process is re painting paintable blanks or repainting lures which are in decent shape. I scuff sand the baits to prep the surface for painting, prime coat, paint the pattern then apply a hard coat epoxy finish. The pricing is based on length of lures and amount of detail desired. The base cost is $3.00 per inch of lure body + shipping. Any additional work such as added gill detail or fins are subject for additional charges. Turn around times are dependent on the order in which received and the amount of Hammer Lure orders are being worked on. All lures sent to me should have all hardware removed.
I assure you that you will be getting one of the best, most desirable paint patterns and finishes on the market today.
