The bottom one is what I am trying to replicate. Altho may have a crack at the top one too, later. That is also deceased.

The head I am trying to make is a bit more complicated than it looks. 
Off center weighted head with a slight cupped face.
Jumping in at the deep end for my first try. Had to make a mould for the weight, but that is all done, and just hoping for catalyst today.

Sounds like the Pacific Bait head. Got a Mrs Palmer & Fruit Salad and both work well.

I milled one on my lathe, out of Al bar - 2 mirror halves.
But from what I have seen on some internet sites, you can pour lead into some of the 'rubber' moulds too.

After 40 min fishing I pulled the pin on it. Leave some for another day. Bit of a buzz when you get your first fish on your own lures. I can see I am going to be busy at work over the Xmas period.

Haha, you will start looking at containers of all sizes to see if you can use them as a mould.
Great thou when you land fish on own lure, well done.
Those that say it can't be done are being overtaken by those doing it.
