  1. I am using kbs to clear so I was hoping to use glitter in the createx gloss clear I have then dip. That was the major problem I am having with the airbrush I have.
  2. I have decided to buy a new airbrush as I have found my limits with the cheap one I have. i do a lot of airbrush work on soft plastics . I have for a 3-4 years and my favorite Crankbaits are now no longer made so I have bought 20 in a color that won’t work for me and decided to paint them. What I would like to know is 1-Iwata eclipse is it worth the money? 2- will it shot a clear with .008 glitter in it? Thank you for all the help!

    How long?

    I have dipped a couple of baits in kbs diamond clear. My question is how long do they need to cure to rock hard before I can fish them? Thanks for the help. I live in va on the coast so humidity is usually higher than most.
  5. Lol I’ve got 7 grub molds looking for something like it
  6. This is the inherent beauty in making your own you can make them anyway you want. I have learned over the years of tweaking my stick formula that I change my recipe as to time of year . In the summer months I do... 4 oz ss m n f plastic 1 tablespoon of salt 2 tablespoons of glass media 1 tablespoon of softner yes they are one hit wonders. In the cooler months I use the recipe I first posted. Now if I use all glass media is both recipes I don’t add softener at all I don’t need to and it makes for a much more durable bait . I fish a wacky rig ALOT ! Did I say a lot? weighted jig head or hook only. My favorite is a 4 incher. I can tell I have it right when I pull it through the water and you can feel the ends pulsate. It took me 6 years of trial and error to get where I wanted them but I would take the “Pepsi challenge” any day with GYB ! Crap I’m showing my age! Heck I prefer mine and so do most of my fishing buddies. I guess what I’m trying to say is the first one I posted is a good starting point and you can pretty much take it from there only you know exactly what you’re looking for . I will say one last thing don’t get too hung up on trying to make it exactly like Gary Yamamoto’s i’ve had more success with different formulas than with the original . Tight lines!
  7. I use m and f super soft and add more and some times I add more salt.
  8. 4 ounces of soft plastic 2 table spoons of salt 1 tablespoon of softener This is mine others may differ . FYI The search bar at the top will help you find just about anything you could want.:-)
  9. I just wanted to thank everyone for the input! That is the 4 gyb grub I remember! Kudos to A I for making it! I’ll be buying a few more . It’s been a long strange journey since I started making my own baits for personal consumption. This one was the great white whale for me! It was the one of two bait designs I really wanted because it flat out catches fish.!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I fish them on an 1/8 slider spider heads with the heavier gauge hook . Deadly for spawn largemouth and all through the summer. I had success on the upper James river for smallies too. Again thank you so much for everybody’s input
  10. Looks great! The dents in sticks are usually from shooting at to high of a temp. It could be other things , but that’s where I would start..
  11. I forgot to mention a hand blender will mix it too but it Adds a lot of air . If I do it that way I have to cook off the bubbles in the microwave . Which can be a PIA in of itself.
  12. I have a couple of lucky craft cranks and one I can no longer find so what I would like to do if it will help hold the paint and prism scales a little longer is dip it in diamond clear. Am I crazy, wasting my time? Any and all insight is welcome ! Thanks!
  13. I use the ultra fine grit. Mark is 100 % correct it will make the color more translucent And it’s hard on the one injector I have but I’ve been using it for 4 1/2 years with glass beads and all I’ve had to do was replace your rings
  14. That looks just about identical to a yama 4 incher. Perfect! Thanks a lot!
