Using any of our splitring pliers, attach a size 2/0 Y-treble and a size M stinger spike to a 9mm stainless splitring.
Take around 50cm of our 35lbs carbon49 trace wire and feed a 1.6mm wire crimp onto the end of it. Form a loop at the end of the wire with the 9mm stainless splitring sitting in the middle of it, then take the wire back through the crimp. Now crimp the 1.6mm wire crimp to secure the splitring to the wire.
Thread a 1.6mm wire crimp followed a glass bead onto the wire. This is what takes the weight of the lure when casting so that there's no pressure being put on the stinger spike.
Take corkscrew and place the spike in the exact centre of the lures nose. Take care when screwing it in to make sure that it goes in nice and straight.
Finish up with eye of the corkscrew in the horizontal position.
Thread the wire up through the bottom of the corkscrew eye.
Insert the stinger spike into the desired area of the lures stomach, again take care to go in nice and straight.
Run the glass bead up until it hits the eye of the corkscrew. Now with the 1.6mm wire crimp sat just behind the bead crimp it in place so there is no slack and just the correct amount of wire between the corkscrew and the stinger.
Finish up by crimping a loop in the other end of the wire. You are now ready to rock.
