  1. Thanks, I will check out a few of them after work today.
  2. What are you guys using to remove the sprue from small jig heads, like 1/32-1/8 oz. Typically with larger jigs and sinkers I just twist them off but with the smaller ones I am bending the hooks and loosening the wire keepers. I know places sell cutters online but I don't want to make an order for a $10 cutter and pay $8 shipping. Is there something I can get from Lowes or Hobby Lobby that would work? I would like something that cuts close so I have minimal file work. TIA!
  3. i read on facebook group that you can only get it by the 55 gallon drum. It also is facebook, so take that for what its worth
  4. I have this mold, its quality and a real fish catcher. I slam white bass, crappie, and panfish on it. Caught an 18.5" smallmouth on one last spring while white bass fishing.
  5. I second this...they make some really nice molds. Will be more expensive than Do-it, but also much better quality. I have their 2.2" swimma and its awesome
  6. I actually have set the bar at the top so I can't push the ends off. I have done that with my single injector before though. It sucks when it falls in the cup...lol
  7. I have a Do-it dual injector and I am not a fan. The gap between the 2 injectors is pretty small and makes it difficult to use larger pyrex cups. No locking pins is also a minor issue. If I had it to do all over again, i would have paid the extra $50 and went with a BassTackle Dual injector. Just my opinion though, others may feel different.
  8. Black grape with strawberry colorant ought to get you close to that color. That looks really close to what I get when I make blue fleck, minus the blue glitter.
  9. I have this mold from Fat Guys Fishing and it is awesome. https://fatguysfishing.com/2-2-little-swima/
  10. If you are just making baits for yourself, basstackle.com has some very affordable single cavity CNC molds that will get you started. Thats how I started out, bought a few single shot molds for there and started injecting. They are great for personal use, but would take you forever if you were trying to fill orders. I also suggest only buying molds you are gonna use. Get 2 or 3 molds of the soft plastics you use the most. Get a handful of colors and glitter that you use the most. Keep it simple in the beginning, there is plenty of time to go over the top with molds, colorant, and glitter once you decide if this hobby is for you or not.
  11. This is also what I do with some of my molds, flukes, stingers and craws mainly. You can get pretty creative hand pouring the bottom and then shooting the top. I have been able to get craws with 4 different color by hand pouring 2 colors on the bottom for the tail and body, a different color for the claws, and then shooting the 4th color for the top of the craw. Its time consuming but you can get some really unique baits. I have never had an issue with them coming apart either. I usually make sure I shoot the injector a little hotter than normal to make sure they bond well.
  12. I have MF non-bleed flo. pink colorant and haven't had any issues with it bleeding. I have done a number of white body/pink tail 2" paddle tails and haven't had a single one bleed. MF non-bleed florescent colors are about all I use if I am making florescent baits. You might have to use a few more drops than other brands but i have never had them bleed.
  13. just a quick update about my BTS mold. Got a shipping notification Thursday, 16 business days depending on how much got done around Easter. So mine was at the low end of the 14-26 business days, excited to get the mold and shoot a few.
  14. What size are they? Jacobs Molds has some similar to that. http://stores.jacobsbaits.com/split-tail-1-3-4-12-cavity-mold-3-16-dia-body/
