Mike-

Not sure if they are commercially available. A guy from Lancaster had the molds custom made and the blades laser cut up to 1.75 oz. He has since moved and I lost track of him.

His blades were thicker than Silver Buddies and much more durable.

BTW, we always caught more fish of all sizes on the 3/4 oz then the heavier blades. The occilation and vibration were more pronounced on the smaller blades.

These were in my tackle box are a little box worn.

Mike , Have you ever taken a look at the various offshore blade baits on the market ? They are more streamlined than the typical Sonar or Silver Buddy types and are designed for high speed trolling for tuna and wahoo . Braid makes some nice ones and they are available from 1.5 to 6oz . Maybe you could get a few and get a mold made from them ? Couldn't hurt to try :
