The 2 together showing the difference.Ken`s on the bottom.

A little clearer with this shot,Ken`s in the middle.The difference in the signatures can also be seen.

There has bee a mistake made that I would like to rectify. :oops: These lures are not collectable at all :shock: :shock: so if anyone happens to have any old ones laying around you are probably better off sending them to me. :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:

Ziggy
If it has a "wide" belly and metal bib, does that mean it is an old one of Ken's?

Jenkins, sounds like Ken`s but just to be sure it might pay if we have a real up close look,send him down.

Ziggy, that grey one is the same width as the other 2 you got off me.The new one is 30mm wide compared to 21mm for the old one.Do you have some Ken's that are wider than 21-22mm.Ken's lure is 68mm long w/out bib,Marks is 66mm.
Cheers'
Goodoo.
PS, been tinkering in the shed, I will have a couple of pressies for you by next w/end.I hear you like nudes :P :P I will need your addy though.

Goodoo, Most of mine are wider(25mm) but have a look at these two & also compare them with the ones Chief put up.
I must say Ken didn`t make it easy.Have a look at the difference in lenght as well. :lol: :lol: :lol:

Image

The 70`s of Mark`s that I have are all thinner & more tapered. I haven`t seen the fat one before, very interesting.

Tagged, Not all,Ken Hendry started & made no two alike it appears & Mark Dobbin brought the Business off Ken`s wife a couple of years after Ken passed away.
It looks as though Mark had some variations when he started & these could possibly be blanks he got with the business,I`m not sure.
