|I just bend the wire back 180 degrees, and then back on itself after an inch or so, for about a cm, but that is with making chisel nose plugs. I do the wiring of a few plugs, line them up and just pour molten lead in the back, easy. Some commercial plugs just bend the wire back and cast it in but I've pulled one or 2 of those out but I've never had one doubled back again of itself, pull out. The leadhole is drilled through the centre, depth and diameter according to plug weight, some more more weight forward, some more weight back.. These lures are for a high speed surface retrieve so maybe different dynamics to what you are thinking of?
