I have quit a bit of experience with Swimbaits, Glide Baits, and Alabama Rigs growing up in Oklahoma and going to college in Arkansas. I would recommend taking a look at the American Tackle Bushido Swimbait SWB710/12-25 Blank. This will be perfect for what you are looking for.

This week marks one year of working as the Marketing Director at American Tackle Company and this week I completed the hardest build I’ve attempted yet. My first Fish Scale pattern on a new Frog Rod. Although it’s not perfect, I can say I am proud of it because a year ago I was just attempting my first build; the year has been great progress and I’ve really enjoyed every step along the way.

The length of each blank from us is completely decided by the builder to keep that size, or shaped to the perfect size.
