    Need a line tie when jig fishing

    Jeff, have you considered a tie able leader like 20# Cortland Toothy Critter? You would lose the swivel but you are using it for a jig, not a spinner. You could cover the knot with a little heat shrink if the knot itself is catching. Craig

    Identify this skirt color - Part 2!

    I understand completely Mark! I come up with a new idea for a skirt, am all excited, go to add a few variations on this color, a few of that one, etc. Only to find out they are out of one of the colors I needed, so scrap the whole order...

    Identify this skirt color - Part 2!

    It looks like smoke with small green flake and pepper. Look at FG-1 from Living Rubber: Of course it may be one of those Internet how you perceive it things as well. Fishingskirts has clear tabs tabs under the “no flake” section, but they are frequently out... clemmy

    cottoncordell g finish

    I always thought g-finish was just retroreflective paint.? And wasn’t Rapala’s finish propionate? Clemmy
  7. If just doing a few, you can use vise grips in a bench vise. I know Moore’s Lures makes a vise with a coil adaptor head, though I’ve never seen or tried it.

    Crankbait Lips

    Depending on how many you need, there's usually some on EBay. Not sure exactly which type you are looking for, I.e. Coffin, round, large, small etc.

    Collared props

    Moore's Lures carry some. You should also contact TU member Smalljaw. He's the resident Nip-I-Didee expert.. Craig

    Glider stability fin design

    Gliders: I think tail fins are about stability. If the body starts to drift to a side, the surface area of the tail fin helps to resist that action. The righting force would be dependent on surface area of fin, speed and distance of the fin from center of motion in that plane. I think rocket style fins are shaped to try to avoid increased drag while still providing stability. Mark: Yes, some baits actually make the tail fin out of metal to make it user tunable for that reason. The most obvious example likely is the classic musky bait the "Suick".
  11. Has anyone ordered either of these? Any feedback? Or better yet, Pics!
  12. I was thinking about ordering some living rubber to tie with in addition to my normal silicone. I'm one of those that like to use Zman plastics, and was wondering if any have used with living rubber? I know that they don't react with silicone, but didn't know about the rubber. thanks, Clemmy

    Belt/Disc Sander Grit Number?

    Lol Mark, I don't get that close, as I'm not trying to get to final shape. I cut out on the band saw, then whittle a bit to round over, then use the sander to sort of "even out" the lines from whittling. Then I hand sand to final.

    Belt/Disc Sander Grit Number?

    Hello, I need to get some replacement sandpaper, and am just curious what other folks like for Grit for disc and belt sanders. I usually use the belt for smoothing and evening out the balsa body after rough shaping cut/carve. The disc I normally use for dressing polycarbonate/micarta lips up to the line. haven't messed around with PVC yet, but plan to, so would love to hear those opinions as well! thanks, craig
