1 pointLol.....Jonister. You needed a recorder. From a layman's side of this. If I don't lose, damage or a fish damages a bait for about two seasons that bait has done well and me too. I have baits older than that with these types of paint on them and to my eye these baits look similar to when I made them. If you feel like I do DDL about the life of a bait....don't worry about it. The only paint that I get frustrated about is metallic's. I'm just now messing with them a lot.
