  1. Thanks, Braided Line. I called Seeker and had a really pleasant conversation with one of their representative.
  2. Hi, I'm new to this forum, but not this site. I've pondered for some time the idea of building a rod. Now, I think I'm ready to give it a try. All my rods are Loomis graphite rods; so, I thought I might build a glass rod in order to have something different. My recollection is that Seeker used to/still does produce a glass blank that Rich Forhan was particularly fond of for any fast moving baits. Do they still produce that blank; and, if so, what is its model number? Have any other blanks been developed that have proven better for the application of fast moving baits? Thanks in advance for any guidance you can provide. I'm certain I'll have more questions. Greg

    Gulp Crankbait Lip

    Thank you all for the responses. There is a tremendous amount of knowledge and experience to be found on this website.
  4. The Zoom color is 057.

    Gulp Crankbait Lip

    Thanks for the response. I appreciate the guidance on lips. It may be next to impossible to remove the remaining lip without destroying the crankbait body. Not sure. Hopefully, others will respond with some guidance.
  6. Hi, I got careless with a cast and broke the lip off a Jim Herter Gulp crankbait. First, I assume I can wiggle out with pliers the part left in the crankbait body. Is this correct? Assuming this is the case, does anybody have any replacement lips for sale? Thanks, Greg
  7. Hi, I have a friend with an affinity for Zoom lizards (4", 5", and 6") in Pumpkin Green color. However, Zoom has apparently quit producing lizards in this color. Is anyone on this site familiar with this color? If so, do you pour lizards in this color for sale? Thanks, Greg

    Shakey Head Mold

    Cadman, Thank you for the information.

    Shakey Head Mold

    Had not planned on adding a screwlok. I'm not fond of them; because, I find them difficult to "center" in the worm. However, I borrowed a weighted, swimbait hook from a friend of mine, recently; and, the screwlok device actually incorporated a "centering" pin that was nothing more than an extension of the screwlok that protruded beyond the coils and could be stuck into the center of the worm, swimbait, etc. prior to threading the bait on to the screwlok. Have you seen these? If so, where could I purchase them?

    Thank you smalljaw. This site has so many talented, experienced individuals.

    Shakey Head Mold

    Hi Walking Dead, Yes, I could probably fill in the hole for the weed guard and use that mold. Thank you for the idea.

    Shakey Head Mold

    Probably the PRO-102 series, or something similar. So, do you "drill out" each half of the mold?

    Shakey Head Mold

    I'm sure this has been asked, before, but..... I want to pour some shakey heads that utilize a barbed collar and flat eye hook. It doesn't appear Do-It makes such a mold. What's involved with modifying one of their molds to accept a flat eye hook?

    Lohr's Crankbait

    Does anyone know which of the Lohr's crankbaits is the same as the Blazer Bait or Tapp?
  15. Based on my search of the internet, it appears Boogerman Lures has gone out of business. Perhaps, one of you can confirm this. Assuming it's true, does anyone know which mold and associated parts they used for their buzzbaits? The mold may be a custom model; but, I thought I would ask. Thanks
  16. How do the line grip swivels for use in Do-It drop shot molds perform? My interpretation of the photo is that the part of the swivel that receives the line might be "crimped" too close together. Does one need to use a feeler gauge or other thin object to open up this portion of the swivel? Also, how well does the swivel work in the regular bass casting sinker mold? I think the latter shows the weight once molded. I'm new to tackle building; so, I may have several questions going forward. Thanks.
  17. I've already contacted Partridge. The hook I'm looking for has already been replaced by two other hooks, neither of which are remotely close to the original. Lacking contact information for Mustad, I'll probably contact Gamakatsu to see if they have something close.
  18. The hook style would be round bend (Grey Shadow Hook was touted as have perfect round bend), light to fine wire, relatively short shank, and conical point (I believe). I was going to make an inquiry to Mustad; but, I didn't see a link for email on their website.
  19. Thanks; but, those are fly tying hooks. I did manage to find some of the hooks I'm seeing on Ebay; but, that was some time back. Thanks again.
  20. About 20 years, ago, there was a short shank, round bend, finesse hook, called the Grey Shadow Hook. It was promoted by Gary Klein. He also promoted a heavier hook known as the Black Weapon Hook. The hooks were made by Partridge Hooks in England under their model number GRS S5. I've contacted Partridge Hooks; and, they no longer make the hooks. Somewhere, along the way, I was told Mustad bought the hook or possibly Partridge Hooks; and, the hooks became the UltraPoint hook. Does anyone know where I might obtain some of the original Grey Shadow Hooks, or the Mustad replacement for these hooks?
  21. This has probably been asked many times before; but, what are the "tell tell" properties that define a Wiggle Wart as one of the sought after original models? I have one that's about 30 years old; but, I really wouldn't know the difference in it and a current model. Thanks
  22. Thank you Smalljaw and Cadman for the information.
  23. Hi Cadman and Others, I apologize for the lack of clarity in my first post. The mold in question is a Do-It mold, number 3453. I produces a football jig without a collar, but with a screw lock holder. It also takes a 60 degree flat eye hook. I want to eliminate the screw lock holder and replace it with a collar style plastics holder. Do-It offers other football jig molds that offer the collar and associated collar style plastics holder; however, they don't appear to take the 60 degree flat eye hook. Thanks
  24. I'm considering purchasing a Do-It football jig mold. It is designed for a screw-lock plastic keeper. As designed, it does not produce a shank along the hook wire. I would like to modify this mold to eliminate the screw-lock keeper and replace it with a shank and shank style keeper. Is this a difficult modification to achieve? How is it accomplished? Thanks
