  1. How does the body girth compare between the 3" & 3.5" Thanks guys.
  2. I thought about buying it & just adding enough color (other than the main body color) to give it a hue like black, blue, chartreuse, pink etc. I figured the baits could be cut & make a laminate with so i may try that too. How does the 3'' compare to the 3.5 as far as size goes. Most use 3.3 & 3.8 kietechs around here. I willl be fishing them in really clear water highland lakes if that makes a difference what size to get. Thanks
  3. Does this mold make good laminates? Thanks
  4. I'd try about 4 ounces & see if that's enough to inject it. Remember if doing 4 ounces you'll only get 3 or so ounces when you inject because there will be a plug of plastic that will not come out. On my microwave i put 3 to 4 ounces in for a minute & a half. Your may be totally different so i'd try a minute, stir & go from there. I put my colorant & glitter in the cold plastisol & heat it. After a little while you'll figure out how your microwave does & you'll be able to get really close to getting it ready to pour in one heating. I do have my recipies like Canga~ said, but i've never had much of a problem adding it in cold. When making new colors i work in small batches & add colorant or glitter as needed.
  5. Check to see if Curt has one at enforcer molds/ I have a couple of his single cavity 4 inchers & they work great.
  6. Mike, what about some blue with a little watermelon? I made some finesse worms colored like the old blue creme worms from about 30 years ago for a buddy & they looked very close to that. I remember that it was just a few ( seems like it was 3)drops lureworks pthalo blue & either one or two drops lurecraft watermelon to 3 ounces of plastic. It was extremely close to what you're looking for.
  7. Leonard, the medium you sold in my opinion was by far better than anything i've used so far when it comes to the baits being soft, but durable enough too. The bait plastics medium is just way to soft & spongy feeling to me. If the mixing hard & medium doesn't help i'll be going another direction for sure.
  8. Mark, that's exactly how i feel. I mixed some medium & hard 50-50 lastnight to see how it cures, Hopefully it does better.
  9. Enforcer, basstackle, del-mart & do-it are what molds i;ve used. Glitter & colorant i'm buying lureworks from ispikeit.com. I also like their plastic although right now i'm trying bait plastics, but the jurys still out on that.
  10. Mines the same exact way, but i know where every single thing is too.
  11. The only things i'm seeing for myself that doesn't exactly suit me with the baitplastics plastisol is that it seems stretchier & softer in the same medium grade than the other 2 i've used. I think medium hard or even hard would cure that problem. I also think it is tackier when i first demold than the other 2 by far. It does cure good & clear for transparent colors & also lets the glitter show pretty easily for colors that aren't extremely transparent/ It's like anything else in that it has it's goods & bads. I like it, but am not yet completely satisfied with it so i don't know which brand i'll go with when i use it up. I may be to picky i don't know, but i do like lureworks an awful lot too.
  12. I also have the 4" double dipper from angling ai & it's great. Bob Lebonde at cncmolds & stuff also has a tube mold i noticed that is very affordable.
  13. uh thats cnc molds & stuff. Sorry Bob.
  14. Bob Labonde CNC molds & things has a tube mold now too.
  15. No your not Mark. I've had methiolate & iodine used on me a bunch growing up along with coal oil on cuts.
