  1. I use braid on my hollow body frog rod, and in certain situations I will pitch a jig or soft plastic with that rod as well (dirty water), its got 65# power pro on it. The other application I use super line for is my heavy spinning reel gets fireline 10# on it. Everything else I use is mono or flouro.
  2. Contact the ebay seller who has them, if you are wanting to buy a lot of them I'm sure you can get a better deal than the price he sells just a few for.
  3. They are definitely on level with Ed's work, but I am not sure if he has ever done any without his name engraved in the lip but if he did that would be my guess too.
  4. They are not exactly like the TN Killer either. They are very well made, probably in GA, NC or SC, worth between $20 each and priceless. Just looking at the eyes, looks like Sellers, Klein, or Pryors work to me.
  5. Those look nothing like the thunder shads made now, or any I have seen.
  6. They are not cancelling bassmasters, but every other outdoor show is gone from ESPN channels in '11 I would guess they are keeping bassmasters going to help sell it, i hear the outdoor channel is looking at BASS as may be a few others
  7. Kelly @ custom lures unlimited makes one thats a very detailed frog body with the jitterbug style lip thats a great bait
  8. every once in a while (at least once a week if you paint a lot) you need to take your brush apart and clean inside the air cap and nozzle and such, to make sure that the air has a clean path too. Another possibility for the splattering is the paint could be too thick, if thats it just try thinning it a little more, but it sounds more like there is paint that your not cleaning out. Good luck, and there should be instructions on the Iwata site on how to get to those parts if your unfamiliar.
  9. thats not what i use, i was unable to find a clearcoat to protect the createx and not react with it, that would be soft enough to work.
  10. Well its coming soon, I just designed some frog colors for a major manufacturer that should be out by this fall or next spring.
  11. automotive paint, even the kind for painting interiors and adding flex additive does not stick to a frog, that was the first thing i tried and wasted money on.
  12. Curious to see if anyone else has figured out what to paint frogs with besides me, thats my frog in the picture there. Most of the things I do I will gladly tell, but I'm not going to say what I use on the frogs, who knows someone might be willing to pay for the secret some time haha.
  13. Mine is .05 mm and only one needle, maybe you should contact the site your looking on and find out if its a misprint, or if they really have them in .03
  14. The Lucky Craft RC 2.5 blanks that do not have the screw out bottom to change weights is what I would like to find. I thought the person with them had done their own deal with China to get them, but now I see a few others selling them on ebay as well so they are out there somewhere.
  15. try looking for "magnum willow leaf" blades, same thing but i believe terminator may have a copyright on calling them "Oklahoma" blades
  16. yes wear a respirator
  17. cullin8s

    balsa lure 2,7 cm

    That is the coolest thing I have ever seen
  18. I believe I have mesh like all of those and many more, but nothing that looks like actual fish scales, thats the holy grail i seek
  19. I keep hoping to find some mesh thats actually fish scale shapes on something

    Tungsten

    Tungsten itself is an expensive raw material One reasonable Tungsten site, I have not used their weights, but the price is right and another one, not as cheap, but probably a little better insert
  21. I have a lot of RC's and have never seen one that hunts, its just a very good bait all around. I think its best attribute is how it bounces off cover.
  22. The Editor that just left FLW Magazine, Jason Sealock, is now over at Wired2Fish.com. Be sure to stop by and check out the changes taking place over there. Lots of big doings going on there, like their first TV spots on ESPN (also available on the site) Jason will make a great addition to their team.
  23. Palomar and double Palomar is what I use with everything except flouro where I use the improved clinch knot
  24. Thanks, Urethane paints with Devcon clearcoat
