  2. Custom Jig mold cost?

    Yes lots of variables. Mine have run from $120-$300.
  3. Frog problem

    So even on this the body rigidity is what makes the tail go back and forth?

  5. Frog problem

    I found that the Huddlestone tail works because the entire body in front of it was rigid. That tail is not an action tail. It is driven by the water flowing off of the rigid body in front of it. Maybe a swivel attachment of the last segment would enhance any movement, but I think, with your bait's current joint system, some kind of a boot tail would give it more action. Even then, it's hard to imagine what action it would have without testing.
  6. Soft bait for pike?

    Something that just hit my radar is a chatter bait (bladed jig). the flash/thump from the blade and a big soft plastic trailer should be a winner I will give them a try this ice season I think I would use a smelt trailer vs soft plastic. Typically as a pike guy you get use to ignoring bass gear so that is my excuse for coming late to this party.

  8. Frog problem

    Hey guys. Happy Thanksgiving. I am looking for some help on my frog. I thought the design of the feet would give me some movement on them- kind of like a huddle jack type bait. I'm getting nothing. Any input? Thank you
  9. Fly drying motor

    This motor is the one I use for fly tying. 5 to 6 RPM is a perfect turning speed with enough torque to turn flies. https://m.ebay.com/itm/New-Stock-Synchronous-Synchron-Motor-50-60Hz-AC-110V-4W-5-6RPM-CCW-CW-J96J-/262352585850

  21. Custom Jig mold cost?

    It will depend on the amount of cavities along with design work. If you have everything worked out design wise for the sizes and hooks you intend to use then it could be just a few hundred dollars. If the machinist has to do a lot of CAD work to make the mold the cost are significantly higher.
  22. Custom Jig mold cost?

    Hi All, Does anyone have an idea the average cost for a custom made jig mold? I would like to have a bullet head jig mold made with a more agressive collar and trailer keeper compared to the Do-It one I have. Thanks for any help in advance.
  23. simple question for zinsser bin users

    Ddl, nozzle on mine is 1.4 mm, I do thin it with de-natured alcohol. Unfortunately I dont measure ratio , just judge viscosity, probably 5 part primer to 1 alcohol. Its still fairly thick ,slightly thinner than single cream ! Basically as thick as you can shoot an even coat with. You don't need an expensive gun either ddl, mine was as cheap as, and not a single problem....glider
