I've gotton a few kits from NJ Tackle.
I met salty (Scott) in Amagansatt last year, we had a few laughs.
Seems like an OK guy. He was hawking his wares to the shops out there.

im just painting a egglet swimmer for next season, scott also offers eeg floats, what a great float!!! it has a nail on the side to hang the hook wile casting, be it a sandworm rig. a 1/4 oz bucktail, or fly. it falls off the nail when it hits the water, leader goes out and you are fishing a light bait or so on, you whould never get to where you wanted it before!!!--------great!!!!

Scotts a funny dude... I've had the booth next to him at a few of the plug bashes... his personality can be quite abrasive.. personally, I've never had a problem with him..

His kits provide a service to someone trying to learn the "ins and out's" of plug building, however, there are flaws... the packages have been known to be missing gromets... the biggest flaw is with the wiring/swivels... they hang too low, encouraging hook tangles and break offs, when the barrel part of the swivel hangs below the plug body, fish can get leverage on the plug and break the swivel.. especialy after a season or two of wear...because the plugs are drilled on a CnC machine, they are drilled in a single pass.. the proper way, is to drill from the tail to the front hook, in a straight horizontal line, then, according to the lip placement drill from the lip hole to the front hook hole at an angle into the front belly hole meeting the horizontal hole ... this allows the swivels to hang properly, with just the lower ring exposed...

Would a split ring solve the leverage issue? Just thinking out loud(or in type) believe me I am under the belief if you sell something as an unfinished product it should be 100% ready to finish and operate properly. Just wondering if a split would solve the leverage issue? Nothing will solve the tangle issue aside from a smaller swivel which can be a double edged sword, solving one problem and creating another. Just thinking

Nope... it's just a product of the way they are produced... not the end of the world.. just a problem that can only be fixed by doing it the right way.. not the cheap way...

That is why I love the show Holmes on Holmes, dissecting a job and re doing it the proper way is fun to see

I never liked that with the swivels either so i never use them, i replace them with size 2 Spro(230 lb) swivels, shorter and stronger.
