  1. in my experience none of the ripper molds make good laminates. i have heard (and seen i guess) that i can be done, but i was never able to do it, that 90* bend in the runner makes it difficult (though not impossible). i was looking at the ripshad from fat guys fishing, similar looking bait, and its an 8 cavity top inject, WAY more expensive thoug. i reached out for a couple samples a couple times and he said he would send some and never did, so i never went through with the order, but his molds look good!
  2. Can also try injecting faster, I have a mold with thin tails and it doesn’t fill the tails with my normal slow injection speed, inject fast and it fills perfectly
  3. This is great advice, I use the notes app on my phone, can put pics of the bait and a table with colorant info, glitter info, etc under the pic, works great!
  4. colors dont need to be mixed in cold, some prefer to do it cold, some prefer to do it hot. i mix my colors in hot so i know what they will look like, especially when experimenting with new colors or mixes of colors. if you have established recipes then mixing cold is ok, i still mix hot.
  5. I think that every colorant manufacturer makes non-bleed colorants. I know Lureworks, Lurecraft, do-it, mf, and deacon do for sure. They should say in the description for the colorants if they are bleed or not. (I didn’t see anything on Lurecraft on if they bleed or not, but it says if they are on Doit and Lureworks sites, and I think all deadon are non bleed)
  6. i have the angling ai little hammer mold, which is a 2.75" swimbait, 4 cavity and a fairly large runner, with 4 individual sprues for each cavity (hard to explain, but it takes a decent amount of plastic, check the pics on the ai site) and it fills very easily with around 2oz of plastic. i would think with a normal sprue/runner, you would be fine with 6 or 8 cavities. the 3.75" version fills with about 2.5oz, just for reference.
  7. Try shooting it faster, I have the 2.8” version and when I used it shooting fast filled the tails better.

    I am no expert, but I believe worm oil is essentially the same as softener, and most scents are scented worm oil. I have remelted plastic that has worm oil in it, and scents and haven’t had any problems.
  9. heat stabilizer will help a ton, as will a probe thermometer. i dont use a themometer after the initial heat, just go by the viscosity of the plastic, but i use the exact heating routine every time, and its worked well. until you get used to the platic you use, the microwave you use and that sort of thing, check the temp more and use stabilizer and your colors should stay true reheat after reheat.
  10. not sure what this grub is supposed to be, but it is HUGE, i bought one hoping it would be on the small side of 4" grubs but it made a 4" kalins look small by comparison, and IMO a 4" kalins is a large grub. i returned it the day after i got it!
  11. Perhaps look at the fluorescent green that bait plastics pops up on every page, might be close. I haven’t used any of it yet but looks interesting
  12. Hmm, wonder if they still have the other one!
  13. When I was looking for a large injector basstackle didn’t have one listed and did not respond to a couple emails asking about the 10oz availability. It’s still not on the site. I would have probably gotten one of those, but glad I got the quality injector since it’s much shorter than the basstackle and looks less awkward to handle (IMO)
  14. I have a 12oz from them and it’s great ( other than the o-rings), quality construction, heats up quickly and keeps the heat nicely.
  15. So I got an injector off Facebook, (quality injector and more) and the injector is great, high quality, dual locking pins, 12oz capacity and doesn’t leave a giant plug after injecting. But the orings that came with it are not good and the only ones they have are the same as I got. where should I go to get new orings, is there any specific type I should be looking for? Essentially I’m looking for a larger diameter version of what you get in a basstackle injector. thanks!
