  1. Smalljaw, Thanks for your reply! I'll order some of Barlow's blades and weigh and measure to see how they compare to the Hildebrandt blades. I'm not sure why the Hilde blades produce so much better than any other blades. Sometimes the bass just prefer something vs another! I like to fish this #2 blade on a 3/16 oz spinner bait. It's very hard to find a spinner bait this size that will not be overpowered by the heavy blade. But, I found out years ago, this combo bounced off wood will drive a bass crazy (even better than most other spinner baits). It's been a staple in my arsenal of baits for years and something that I can pick up and seemingly catch a fish anytime. Smalljaw, I want to tell you I have been a fan of yours for years! I'm a subscriber to your YouTube channel and look forward to every new one. Thanks so much for the efforts and work you do to help others!! Mike in TN
  2. Once upon a time, I made a custom spinner bait, 3/16 oz, equipped with a #2 Gold Colorado blade. These were made for my own use and never sold. I found this blade on this bait to be very productive. Now, as I go to my "stash" of blades to make more baits, I find I'm down to just a few of these blades. After researching availability of these blades, I found that Yakima had bought the Hildebrandt company and only offer this blade in #3 and larger. So, I'm reaching out to you here on TU asking if you might have some of these blades that could be bought. Please let me know if you have some and how much you would want for them. Thanks in advance, Mike in TN
  3. Anyone know where I might find DT14 blanks? I have found DT10 and DT16 blanks, but no DT14 blanks.
  4. These look really good also! Just wondering, do these Crinkle Colors require any extra attention in applying or curing? Thanks Mike
  5. I'll have to pay them a visit and find out exactly what they have!!!!! A pound would last me forever. I might be willing to swap some with others.................. Mike
  6. I also found BOSS products has this: Anybody use their products? Mike
  7. Thanks, Allen. That's very interesting. As it turns out, Columbia Coatings is only 45 minutes from my house! I'll have to look into what they have. Looks like they are set up for industrial powder coating operations. I wonder if they would sell to a hobbyist? Mike
  8. Quite a while ago, someone on this forum shared a powder paint that looked to be "cracked"in its dried form resulting in a brownish, veined finish similar to a "Copperhead". I have exchanged PM's with Cadman and have verified it was not him. I would like to find this powder paint, or others, to try. I am looking for colors that are still nature-like, but different from the norm and standard colors used on jig heads and spinner baits. If you have any colors you would suggest (and especially if you know of or have the "Copperhead" color) please share it and the source where one might obtain it. Thanks Mifon Nashville TN
  9. Guys, this is a great thread!! Keep it coming. I really like to see your skirt combos and compare to some of mine. It really gets the creative juices going! LET'S SEE MORE
  10. I have a couple of Dobyns rods that I really like. I like to hold the rod in front of the reel where I rest my thumb on the line for extra feel. These rods have no foregrip. Without the foregrip, it is difficult to keep the rod from twisting and to maintain control of the rod. Is it possible to add a cork foregrip to these rods?? Would buying a cork foregrip and splitting it, then epoxying around rod work?? Would this be the best solution? What suggestions do you have that might help me with my problem? If I added a foregrip, what affect would it have on my rods? Would it change the balance of the rod? Any suggestions or comments would be appreciated. Thanks Mike
  11. Can anyone give me your skirt tab colors (from FishingSkirts) that you use to make Sexy Shad? Thanks Mike
  12. I'm looking for some 1/2 and 3/4 football head jigs without weedguard and no collar. Must have quality hook, the larger the better (maybe 5/0 or 6/0). If you have some of these for sale, let me know details about the jig, the price, and availability. Thanks Mike
  13. Hey, thanks dawg! Don't know how I didn't see that!! Mike
  14. I am looking for rattles that have a hole through the center and are mounted on the top arm of spinner baits between blades (on tandem blade sb's). An example can be seen in this photo http://stansloanzorrobaitco.com/view.php?type=longarm&color=dtndmwil Can anyone direct me to where these might be purchased. Thanks for your help. Mike
  15. I'm looking for .033" stainless wire for my spinnerbaits. It used to be easily found at Barlow's and other such suppliers. Now, all I can find is .031" or .035". Can anybody help me find a supplier???? Thanks Mike
