  1. You might check the Eagle Claw L3052.

    Presto Spout

    I am still using one that I'm pretty sure Kajan would be familiar with!
  3. This is the best way that I have found. Put them in a plastic sandwich bag and vigorously rub them between your hands. This will create static electricity that will cause the strands to seperate.
  4. The only Matzuo that you will find are close outs, they are no longer in business. In my opinion the Eagle Claw Li'l Nasty is a much better hook.
  5. Ultramolds has a 4" mold that will shoot a tube with about a 5/8" solid nose.
  6. Try WTP, they offer a lot of sizes and styles of eyes. You can Google them.
  7. You might check with Ultramolds. They were working one a while back.

    Tube molds

    The molds that Bear sold were made by Ultramold. They are available on their web-site. Do-It and Enforcer Molds also have splined molds. I am only familiar with the Ultramold tube molds, I have about 25 of them and they are very good molds.
  9. Some dyes, especially chartreuse, will fade in sun light.
  10. Shorty's has them, $30.00 per thousand, plus FET.

    Tokyo rig

    Proberos Fishing. He is in China but they are reliable and the shipping is pretty fast. They also have an Ebay store. I bought 100 of the wires from them, the wires are about an inch longer than VMC, maybe not quiet as heavy, but they worked fine for me.
  12. I agree, the gate is the area where the plastic first enters the bait cavity. It has been my experience over the past 15 years of injecting that if it is a dent problem it is because the gates are too small, if it is a filling problem it is usually venting. I am not saying that temperature or clamp pressure can't play a part, but I feel if they do it is usually because of design to start with.
  13. I doubt that most of the folks that have only been injecting plastic for a few years are aware that Dave is one of the early driving forces that has made injecting what it is today. God bless him and his family.

    Tube Molds

    I bought this mold when Chris was making them for Bear, have gotten several more over the years from Chris and Rupert. It shoots great and makes a really nice tube.
