  1. yes just cut the tab off you create by taking it out.
  2. I'm thinking a tougher plastic will reduce the wag and get a tighter thump. that big tail will allow for the action even at a tougher plastic. Softer plastic will create some awesome slow roll appeal.
  3. The action of that 4 inch in the video is something I see with my own eyes. I like it, going to get several. They are 5 to 6 weeks out and it looks like it will be worth the wait. I don't care who designed what the eye in the sky don't lie. You can't falsify the baits swimming action that you see. Thicker tail means more durable too. I think that's a plus since hand poring baits takes way longer than injection. I'm just giving my opinions here on what looks like a sweet design and the video footage of it. In the video he even tells you what blend of plastic he uses to give you an idea of its durometer so you can experiment from there. Thinking this in a firmer plastic will be incredible action and durability. A softer plastic will get some great strikes and maybe the thickness will allow some durability that does not exist in other open pour designs. Can't wait to find my preference.
  4. 500g is only about 17 fluid ounces. so would need 7 orders to get a gallons worth.
  5. Thermo Plastic Elastomer-- TPE it will become flat in any regular bait bag. Leave it in the sun on your boat deck and it absorbs the heat, almost untouchable. Mix with plastisol and will loose shape over time. They usually shoot these with pressure and use different colorants than we do. I have 10LBS of the pellets in a viscosity grade similar to plastisol and it will liquify on a stove and take powder and glitter. Still not successful in creating multiple use good baits, have tried several suggested methods but none are successful.
  6. No, but I probably could get my hands on one if I really wanted too. I'm not calling in that favor though, I have no need too.
  7. Got ya, I believe the Doc Irv baits are an old Bear Baits Mold but I could be wrong.
  8. Meant the molds. Did not mean the worm itself. Obviously they could be a custom or a mold cutter who no longer is around or cuts them. It was a simple question about the molds. The color in this case I will say probably aluminum.
  9. Do-it split tail mold. 100% store.do-itmolds.com/Grub-Molds_c_229.html
  10. Buddy went last weekend. Slammed some great fish at the bend. Had one over 8 lbs. Caught 10 over 6, 4 over 5, and then a bunch of 3's. He fished 4 straight days and had a blast. He took pics and released. We made every bait before he left. Craws did the most damage with flukes but he caught 4 nice fish on the bloodline.
  11. Incredible mold, get some great baits and the twin injector can light this thing on fire.
  12. Dave is an awesome man, living nearby I was blessed to be able to run to his shop and pick up small amounts of material when needed. I enjoyed great conversations and learned alot about his start and place in the business. He always made me feel welcomed and helped me with many thoughts or ideas. His illness did start to get the best of him and two major floods did not help. I still have many of his supplies and will regret not being able to go visit him to get more. Not for the supplies really but the visit which meant so much more.
