  1. I have 2 of Bear's 7.5" Flat Belly Finesse Worm (5 cavity) molds for sale. They've been shot literally 2 or 3 times. $70 ea PayPal shipped (continental US only) or $130 shipped for both. PM if interested.
  2. I'm in OH as well and I agree! (Although I think they work anywhere there's bass!) I have the Bears injection mold, but have no experience with the one from Basstackle. I would caution you to make sure you get a hand pour mold to start. I don't see one in hand pour on Bears site, although he may have one. Del's and Basstackle have the hand pours for sure. When I started out I bought the 4" & 5" combo mold from Del and it is a nice mold. To answer your question about differences in the baits, I believe the Bear's version has a slightly slimmer diameter than the others but it's barely noticeable.
  3. I've been eyeing that lateral perch. A bit expensive, but I think it's a very neat looking bait. Good work!
  4. I had to stop watching the video after about 30 seconds. The monotone voice made me wanna scratch my eyeballs out.
  5. I just got my 1st order from fishingskirts.com last week. They're pretty reasonable and have nice products. 100% satisfied
  6. They probably spent all their earnings this year on legal fees sending cease & desist letters to garage pourers like us. LOL
  7. I have used M-F super soft and Chemionics Medium thus far. M-F is by far the most expensive out there, but if you don't buy directly from them you can find it cheaper (hint,hint). It is nice, but way too soft IMO. Needs about 2:1 ratio plastic to salt to get tough enough. The Chemionics medium is really great for a bit less money. I will get the Chemionics Hard next, as I haven't yet found one I think is as durable as I'd like.
  8. I usually just buy them. If it doesn't work out there's someone that'll buy 'em at 90% of what you paid on ebay or the various forums.
  9. I have the Basstackle injector and love it. I don't wanna bash anyone, but I would look at Bear's injection molds. He is the king of injection molds! The design makes them far easier to inject consistently. I use his Chemionics plastic as well, and it is great.
  10. Bear's Kelly Green is the ticket, as stated. Some of the glitters will change color when heated. My green from Del turns purple... go figure.
  11. If I'm understanding you right I think you would need a sprue on both sides of the mold for this to work. Cannot comment on the interaction between the clay and plastisol.
  12. I stick with just a few colors. No sense being out there with 15 colors debating which one to use. Junebug, Green Pumpkin, Black/Red Shad
  13. Having just recently started I would add one more thing here. Pick a bait you use a bunch of and start with 2-3 molds that are exactly the same. When I started pouring I had one 4-cavity mold for stick baits. It took damn near 1 hour to make 20-30 baits. You may have to spend a bit more up front, but you will be glad you did. Having only one mold can be a slow process... heat, pour, demold, heat, pour, demold, etc. You'll spend more time at the microwave than you like.

  14. What you are looking for is liquid plastisol, but that's about as good an answer as you are likely to get. The exact blends from each manufacturer are most likely quite different. I assume the recipe is a closely guarded secret to the manufacturers. My best suggestion would be to look for others in Australia with interest and all throw in on a drum. Split 10 ways it may be easier to stomach.
