  1. There never was a brain tumour, He was on his way out before the hurricanes. When you buy a $1500 piece of equipment from someone (before all that happened) after spending thousands on molds and supplies over the course of a few years, and have nothing but problems with the equipment and get a week of help and ideas on how to fix the problems only to have the person that built the system stop replying to texts, phone calls, messages and emails (yes he was getting them) you kind of get a different perspective on the situation. What happened to him with suffering from Alzheimers and the floods is sad, I wouldn't wish it on anyone, The situation is what it is.
  2. Karma, as I recall he did the exact same thing to Del way back in the day When Leonard started Bear was riding a downward slope on his way out.
  3. If you look at the site too it does state "Business Days" in which case would make today the 12th business day.
  4. Their frog has 2 active design patents on it (D509278, D502981 - expected expiry late 2019 and early 2019) as well as their Speed Worm/Craw has 2 active utility patents (if I am reading that right) US6843017B1, US7168203B2 - expected expiry 2023
  5. Stick to the USA mold makers, they are very aware of their designs and are good about making sure they don't violate any patents (if they do they are on the hook just as much as you are for making the baits) whereas the offshore mold guys don't care. USA patents don't apply to them and they just pass the buck on to the buyer.
  6. 99.999% of injection molds MUST be used with a hand injector. search for hand pour molds, several of the suppliers have plenty to choose from
  7. Caney creek wasn't. Bear wasn't degassing anything, his BBCP was LureWorks Pourasol and was degassed at their plant before they ship. Calhoun hast changed, LureWorks hasn't changed much as long as I've used it.
  8. You're only buying a single drum at a time? don't make a lot of sense logistically when it doesn't cost much more to freight a full skid, especially when you're breaking it down and trying to sell it.
  9. He sold Calhoun to start and then switched to Poly One
  10. Either that or if you're dead set that you need a pre-degassed plastic then order LureWorks Pourasol
  11. No, Leonard used to degas Calhoun plastic himself and there is no one else selling the same plastic already degassed. You would be far ahead of to just buy a simple setup and do it yourself prior to cooking it.
  12. That's because Leonard sold Calhoun plastic, Polysol tried to "reverse engineer" the plastic because Calhoun wouldn't sell to them (obviously) Sounds like it didn't work. Fringe Tackle is selling Calhoun whenever they get it in.
  13. 500 in an 8 hr day? I'd definitely not be able to make a living at that. Like I said, with similar cavity counts there are some of us that can shoot 5-10 times that in a day. Hell I have a couple baits that I can produce 1000 - 1600 per hour, AND i can shoot a real laminate and get even glitter/salt distribution.
  14. Make sure your bags are the right size and also make sure they have had an appropriate amount of time to cure properly. neither will prevent them from deforming but they will minimize it
  15. The joy of this hobby is there are no rules when making what you want.
