    Balsa crank problems

    Is there a way to tell exactly what density it is? I'e used the stuff they sell for model airplanes, but what I'm using now came from a local woodworking store, I didn' see anything about what the density was on the sticker tho

    Balsa crank problems

    Out of the 3 pieces I bought one was much denser then the other 2.

    Balsa crank problems

    It was almost 2 weeks since the bait had been finished. There was no tackiness, I' extremely careful with mixing it. As careful as I can be at least

    swimbait open pour mold?

    You'e got lots of option on buying a mold for open pour. Lurecraft has more then a few, stankx has some a little more unique and most companies have 1 or 2 at least. And making your own isn't as hard as you would think, just a little time consuming. But twice as rewarding when that 1st tank bass destroys one

    Any one care to share their AYU recipe

    I use lurecrafts olive, it' the powder one for the top color and lurecraft pearl white for the bottom color with green hi lite in both

    Balsa crank problems

    I bought a ton of balsa and I'm not seeing what all the old school guys like about it. I had a bill brake out on the 1st outing and all the wood between the bill and the line tie went with it. It's also easier to ruin a bait then it is make one look good. I'e put down the razor and carving knife all together and use sand paper to do all my shaping once the blanks are cut. I also noticed the hooks are poking through the e-tex top coat and into the wood I'm sealing with fast drying polyurethane and epoxying in all my hardware. I let the last batch soak in the polyurethane longer on my latest batch hoping this hardens the wood more and helps the lips breaking out and hook points penetrating the top coat

    Where to buy jig molds

    Can we get a list of places to buy jig molds started? The only decent selection I know of is do-it but I know there' gotta be more

    These are what I have come up with. I like the lighter orange one but when I went to try and duplicate it I got no where close These are a mix of orange, copper, pewter and olive in all different amounts trying to get that burnt orange kinda look

    Need swimbait help.....again

    Thank you sir! All I'm missing now is some kind of tubing so the line doesn't cut through the bait and it will be good to go
