  2. "Just for personal" use does not get you around patent infringement. The patent covers direct connection between the hook and head. I had a friend that owned a tackle company and he tried to get around it by using a piece of wire attached to a spinnerbait hook molded into the head and then connected directly to the blade. He got a C&D letter from Zman.
  3. What Is Patent Infringement? When someone sells, imports, uses, or makes a product that someone else invented without permission, patent infringement has occurred. From here: https://www.upcounsel.com/patent-infringement While Zman likely wouldn't go after a guy in his garage making a couple of baits for personal use, it is still patent infringement.
  4. I always add glitter after heating. In fact, on a new batch of plastic I'll take it up to 350, add my colorant and then wait for it to get down to 325 - 330 or so before I add glitter.
  5. You can also find the old barbed keepers like on the mister twister keeper hooks with that search.

  8. You'll find that everyone has a plastic they prefer. Try different ones until you find what you like.
  9. After you get the big stuff out, spray the inside with wd-40 and wipe them out with a paper towel or rag.
  10. I wonder how many actual flake manufacturers there are?
  11. And we both know that in reality, the fish don't care near as much as we do... LOL
  12. If you have th actual bait in hand there is some .008 red in it. It's Very hard to see in the photo. I think Driftwood is right on the fuschia but the green is greener than chartreuse (at least any chartreuse I have) but a tad yellower than any of the greens I have.
  13. For those familiar with this color what flake colors are in it besides red and black? Interested to see what folks think, especially what color they think the green flake is.
  14. If they're the essential series molds they won't have a shiny finish. Do a search on painting them with engine paint to get a shiny finish, but in reality the fish don't care.
  15. Grab a cheap microwave... it's much more user friendly.
