Default Resin Lure heads

I am in the beginning stages of creating my own lures and have take close looks at some of my favorites that are premiere in the industry. However I do have a few. What is used as inserts for the lures. I understand about the tape and shell. However I see some are perfectly square with holo take on the sides. Is this a resin cast made before the pour of the head. Also I have noticed some have lead in the head. Thanks for your tim and knowledge. I will post pics of my first complete heads!

I apologize about the spelling mistakes....the computer i was on obviously had keys that didnt register all of the time. Also I was wondering what people use for the center hole in the lure that is clear. I want to make a lure without seeing the brass tube. Thanks for all of your help in advance!

I was able to get a copy at the link earlier in the thread. It's a great read not only about making lures but about the history and development of the trolling lure.
