    Manufacturer Clear Coat?

    I have tried many clear coats over time but for me I have always come back to etex for musky baits and KBS for dipping the bass baits. So that's all I use now, tired of chasing clear coats which there is no magic one. The high producers are set with what works for them because of consistency for there product and that's what I do now. No more experimenting YEA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Wayne

    Deep running blanks

    You can always put a weight 18" to 2' in front of your lure to bring it down for deeper depths. Wayne

    But maybe you don't have to charge .25 maybe its more or less, just to add it on doesn't seem right to me. Good Luck with your business. Wayne

    China blank manufacturers

    I treat shipping different than most guys, I just don't add it to the lure when I purchase some. To me it comes under expense of the company and at the end of the year I can see what my shipping is and where to save on it. I know it all comes down to profit and loss but if you can, just don't say it cost me $1.00 per lure and I will just charge $3.00 that will cover everything, that's is where you are wrong, I am no CPA but I have been in a printing business for over 25 yrs. Retired now! You have to look at the whole picture and bundle up your orders to save on shipping where you can maybe bigger orders which bring down everything and some times free shipping.
