Has anyone tried using Ironwood for making sinking stick baits?
Is that Brazilian ironwood, commonly known as Pau Ferro? I think it's a type of tone-wood used in guitar fretboards like maple and rosewood.
American Hornbeam. I pity your woodworking tools lol
twice as heavy as other wood used for plugs.
pain in the ass to turn on a lathe.
dull tools quickly.
some species of "ironwood" the dust is toxic.
so heavy for its size, limits builders ability to add lead to change/tune action.
might be an ideal choice for slow pitch jigs
to be used in shallower water.
slower sink rate than lead,
extends flutter time.
Thank for the insights HJ, appreciate it.
