    Cardiff 200A Mod

    thats a great mod, i own a cardiff that i use for swimbaits and also for shallow water saltwater fishing. i may try this. it would be better reeling in a nice lingcod with the longer handle.

    i always had an idea of the winners of the "best homemade hard baits" should have to supply a video of the bait actually working. so that nobody is using taxidermy molds and just painting them. The lure should have to actually work as it is intended for it to be the "best homemade bait" not just the best painted bait. and if its a flop then no prize collected........ Because there is more to the bait than just the paint job on it.

    Iwata HP-C+ parts

    on my hp-c+ i had a problem with the nozzle not sealing and causing no paint to flow through the gun. so i cut a thin strip of teflon tape and wrapped the tiny threads with it . could you possibly make a temp oring from some teflon tape rolled up and wrapped around the threads until you can locate the one that fits?

    Tiny Bubbles when airbrushing

    a number of things can cause bubbles, to much air pressure, do you run a water trap in the line from your compressor? moisture under the paint, humidity. these are just the basic ones to start with. are you using a reducer with your paint?
