    Which new melting furnace to get?

    Looking at buying a new one soon,any feedback on the new RCBS 2 or the Lyman 25? I know the original RCBS is great but they’re discontinued.. I’ve seen some mixed reviews on the new pro melt 2 dripping and the digital thermostat makes me a little nervous.

    Chrome Powder Paint

    I have and it holds its shine but it also holds up very well. I wish there was a good gold powder paint out there.

    Crankbait build coat

    Have any of you tried dipping them in KBS diamond clear coat? I was thinking about doing this in the next batch I make. All I use anymore for clear coat is either devcon 2 ton or bob smiths,or when I’m lazy I use KBS.

    Antifreeze Color

    Were you looking for a powder coat? This one is pretty close to an antifreeze

    gold plating

    I appreciate all the input guys but I’m going through with spectrum. There’s powder paint out there there’s equal to chrome but not gold. Glitter does nothing for a reflective factor especially in deep or off colored water. It’s easier to just pour and make a bunch up and then send them out to be done and have a bunch finished for years to come. There’s days on Lake Erie you can lose a dozen spoons or blade baits for in looking for a cost effective way to do this. Gold leaf won’t work either since it’s not quite as reflective and will wear off quickly if I don’t load the spoon/bladebait with epoxy which then totally alters the vibration and action of the bait in a negative way.

    gold plating

    Awesome! Thank you sir! I’ll be contacting them soon. How did their gold plating turnout and last on your bladebaits?

    gold plating

    I know of Lakeland’s for blades and flutter spoons but I’m wanting to do brush spoons from a do-it mold and bladebaits. Both of which I use on Lake Erie a lot all year,especially the fall. Some days you’ll lose as high as 12 or 15. I have a powder coat that’s as good as chrome but I’ve yet to find something out there that’s like real gold.

    gold/chrome plating

    Does anyone here ever had spoons/blades gold plated? If so,what was the cost and where did you have it done?

    Fine cut silicone dealers

    Is there anyone else out there with fine cut "frog hair" silicone besides fishingskirts.com? with a decent color selection? Nothing wrong with fishing skirts, I just was looking for several colors they don't carry.
