Spinner bodies come in different shapes, sizes, weights, finishes and are manufactured in solid brass, molded from lead or plastic. Solid brass spinner bodies are turned one at a time, polished then plated or painted. Lead spinner bodies are generally molded right on the wire shaft then painted. Plastic lure bodies are either injection molded or ground to size.
The purpose of a spinner body is for spinner weight and added attraction. The idea is to get the spinner quickly to the depth the fish are holding and maximize attraction at the same time. Not always an easy task but with practice it can be done.
