Default anyone willing to test a lure im making?

well i sent bass kicker my idea for this lure, and he agreed to test it. i have about 6 testers now, and he told me to ask some of you. so here:

hey guys... well, to make some cash for fishign gear, ive decided to try and make my own kind of lure. something differt, so ill have no competition. anyways, i came up with one thing. id blend aluminum foil and paper with water and glue, to make silver paste. replace paper and foil with colored shiny giftwrap for other colors. blend for different color tones. then, i mold it around a long shanked hook, to a fish form, and add googly. i would also mold on different colors. then, i hot glue the whole thing, and level some off so the color and shine goes thru. this makes it hard and durable, plus feels kinda fishy under water. it lasts about 2wice as long as a waveworm or senko, considering how it is bitten at. anyways, after i make some cash and buy gear, ill add trebles on copper wire at front, and glass eyes. any opinions or testers?

ummm ,,thanks,but i'll pass.
IMO you should actually try to catch some bass BEFORE you try to make a bait to catch bass.

I don't think that will get anything and would be so unlifelike that nothing would hit it.

thank you, one who is too annoying and scared to even make a name. ryan, sure ill send you one, no shipping. i might jsut mail em tho lol. any color prefs? makes my deciding much easier. and bassintom, these are the tests. prototypes. i have a pretty good idea of what the lures are, and these took a long ime, about 4 months to come up with. ive got no skill, and so if i cant catch with a spinner while someone can, that means theyve got more skill than me. what if i invented the spinner but couldnt catch anything? and its winter, too cold to fish anyways. also, unregistered, if this is unlifelike, whats a jig?

abu, there is most likely going to be a whole line of baits. probably not crank, but most other hardbaits except crank and jointed. i could do topwater, jerk, and popper, to name a few

kh, color prefs? ryan, i can do most colors. but the more complicated ones wont turn out as good, so the simpler the better. my best is probably bleeding shad or craw, but for muddy i dont know what youd want, i fish clear water.

unregistered cabelas guy, feb would definetely be too early. im a kid, and i dont have the cash for 5000 hooks. perhaps a year and ill be selling them commercially like that. plus, the testing would take a month or so. then id get results, read over them, modify as much as i can, test em again (this time the same people who tested my last ure and gave back decent feedback). ill have to use this method until i get it right. then ill be privately selling em on a site, until i get more cash. then with the cash, ill buy all the gear i need, and add in more modifications to the lure, like glass eyes, a treble hook, and bills. ill be making a whole line in different degigns. my first one is a regular minnow, with a slight twist of design to make it differnt from other lures. plus, how would i contact you? youre unregisterd. once again, im a kid, no nothing about contracts. 4.99 per one? you could go much lower than that, and i doubt people would buy if these dont have a reputation yet. i plan on first testing, then getting the word out, selling (made to order), modifying, testing again, then adding new designs. then i get new designs tested, and that would be when id actually be ready for this. making 5000 of these without knowing theyd sell would kill me. tackle tester, check your pms

oh yeah... and im new to this, so if the first ones suck, hang with me. just tell me in the feedback what happened, and ill send you another one, trying to correct what went wrong. this is how it will improve. also, the first colors wont be as good, since the shading would be a bit differnt, or maybe not bleded perfectly... i dont know, but i will improve. also, i dont know most colors, so pm me with a pic of a lure in the color you want. please stay with me. thanks
