    Wire Weed Guard help

    I'd personally find the correct size in titanium wire.. http://www.lurepartsonline.com/Online-Store/Leader-Wire/Titanium-7-Strand-Leader-Wire-5-Coil.html http://www.lurepartsonline.com/Online-Store/Bulk-Wire/Solid-Titanium-Wire-10-Coil.html

    Are you trying to mimic a craw or shad? Arkie is good for craws. I'd chose the poison tail or trokar swim jig for baitfish. The ultra minnow head is too long and thin for me. It don't rest on the bottom well either.

    I like the kbs to lock on my eyes and add durability.

    Has anybody tried the Eastwood Extreme Chrome Bonded Powder Coat? I'm considering some to try and clear over with KBS... https://www.eastwood.com/eastwood-extreme-chrome-bonded-powder.html
  12. Dawn dish soap/water/toothbrush will remove the putty residue just fine, But make sure the mold is 100% dry before you even consider pouring. EXPLOSIVE if WET!
  13. 1 lb definitely goes a long way... It stays soft and actually gets softer with the heat of continuous pouring. It works great on molds that you don't want to permanently modify with JB Weld or Red RTV silicone. I like it on some weedless jig molds that I make bladed jigs with as well. You don't fill the whole weedguard cavity, Just a dab near the head on both sides of the mold. I fill it a little shallow so the closed mold does not let both halves of putty touch each other and pull out. It also works well for using smaller hooks than a mold was made for like the Midwest finesse mold. I fill in the eyelet areas and use the smaller hook w/o any flash. I hope this helps some...

    Old Crappie Killer Jig

    Using a lead wire sounds like a good option to also wrap the hair.. But using this larva mold is how I would make them. https://store.do-itmolds.com/Larva-JigbrSz-132-116-332-18brHk-33903brCollar-None_p_979.html
