  1. We cut strips of masking tape the width of each joint and put them on both sides of the cloth. Then apply your choice of clear coat. We spray auto clear or moisture cure urethane. No need to spin.
  2. We use one of these: https://www.ebay.com/i/112321104185?chn=ps&norover=1&mkevt=1&mkrid=711-117182-37290-0&mkcid=2&itemid=112321104185&targetid=544246891374&device=c&mktype=pla&googleloc=1020268&poi=&campaignid=1497773989&mkgroupid=59509629962&rlsatarget=aud-622524042918:pla-544246891374&abcId=1139476&merchantid=114605900&gclid=CjwKCAjwkenqBRBgEiwA-bZVtr9pyGvJ73E7zSvUShbch7--2Xrm-wS69fMZafef2DN0jyRdKzC3pBoCB_IQAvD_BwE
  3. As some of you know, I design lures and paint schemes for Bass Pro Shops. Bass Pro has many patents on some of the lures I designed. China has copied many of them and released them for sale. Its just not worth the money to fight them overseas. Here is a perfect example: https://patents.google.com/patent/US8789308?oq=tim+hughes+segmented+fishing+lure There are many copies of this lure for sale on ebay and other places.
  4. If you're talking China, there is no protection
  5. If you put a clear over the foil it hides the edges and a lot of the wrinkles. It just gives you a smooth surface to paint on.
  6. Everything that Skeeter said is 110% correct. But if you really must, I would have a topwater, shallow bill, medium bill and a deep bill. Pretty much covers the spectrum. That should be enough to make you want to quit your job. Just kiddin'
  7. scuff it. Then a good cleaning with isopropyl alcohol . Paint it.

    paint mixer

    At those prices, I think I'll mix by hand.
  11. Use Garmin's new livescope. You can see How deep your lure runs.

    Chrome Baits

    Try using the search function . Type chrome in it and everything you need to know about chrome is there

    Clear coat

    You're doing something wrong. With the bloxygen, I can keep a quart for months and never have it skim over. Just barely crack the lid and shoot the bloxygen for 2 seconds and close the lid. Works every time.
