CST are your lures actually Handmade?
I am glad you asked. CST lures are hand designed, painted, and created from poplar wood. They first start off as a design of a real bait fish transferred to a template, then the perfect piece of poplar wood is selected. From here starts rough chiseling, shaping, and sanding to remove excess wood. A rough shape is created, more sanding and shaping is happening to make the perfect shape for all the different series. Then we have the hook attachment and weights inserted and covered. Now the fun starts with the painting, shading, and texturing to make the look-a-like bait fish come alive. Once the perfect paint job is done and has passed inspection the lure receives a bath 5 times of clear coat with drying between each coat, this is what makes the lures super durable and have that nice shine. The PCB lip and hooks are attached and ready to ship. From start to finish it will take 2 weeks to make a perfect CST Handmade Lure.
The Dome Craft series starts off as a design on a piece of paper, then transferred to wood then a mold is created. Liquid silicone is poured dried and then the hand painting starts. From start to finish its takes 5 days for a CST Dome Craft to be made.
Our CST Landing nets are all handmade the same way our lures are made quality always first, Ideal for Spinning and fly fishing. The net is made from oak and mahogany laminations formed with waterproof glue, all corners are sanded by hand and finished with a UV oil to protect it from water and keep the perfect finish and toped off with a rubber net. From start to finish it takes 7 days to make one perfect CST Landing Net.
