  1. Dead on plastix?

    Check your area for a pvc compound company. I found one locally and gave them durometer (sp?) specs and they made me up plastisol. I can tweak the heat stabilizer content with them too. Nice thing is they sell by the pound and put in buckets at no charge. Something to look into.
  2. Printed Bags

    Make sure you specify your inside dimensions, top pack has a 1/4” seam around and almost 1” above zip lock. There can be some confusion between the cultures lol and they don’t take stuff back. They are the cheapest and I was very happy with the bags.

    Anyone know who strike king outsources their coffee tubes to? Or V&M smallie tubes? Looking for a tube supplier, can’t stand making them.

    Geez is this a p*ssing match? Relax a bit. i think 95% of people should get and fish more
  11. Selling Baits

    Like the previous poster said, a quick call to your tax person will answer all your questions. Why not just come up with your own names for baits? No need to steal others names they worked hard to bring to market. Also decent packaging goes a long way.
  12. Pricing for having a mold made

    Just a heads up with baitmold, I emailed him about getting custom mold done and never received a response. I have bought 2 aluminum molds and they took about a month and half to come. With zero communication. Just keep this in mind. Also nothing stops them from "stealing" your idea or design.
  13. Side Inject Vs Top Inject

    Yeah we do that with the bears pots. I use the UM pots for white and clear laminates. I would like like to know what the next step is in injection machines is that are available? Something that mixes moderate amount of plastic and can keep from burning it while using air to inject? Something under $5000 maybe?
  14. Side Inject Vs Top Inject

    The ultra molds shooting star is not a perfect system. They recommend pre heating your plastisol in a micro past gel stage. So the pots are just keeping a workable temp for you. It's a slow process heating 2 pots worth of plastic in Pyrex then dumping into machine. If you let the pots do the heating it takes over 45 minutes to reach temp. At on mine bought last year.
