  1. I’m ready for them to pull off beds and start getting on a pattern. I’ve had some great trips this year, but they can be finicky when on beds.
  2. I received my first mold today and naturally I had to give it a shot, literally. I couldn’t be happier with the results and wanted to thank you guys for sharing the tips that you have. Most especially Chris, from YouTube, if he’s an active member here. Great videos that are extremely helpful to get someone going.
  3. Looking for advice on a good 2-4 cavity frog mold that has good action with paddle tails. Thank You
  4. I can vouch for these swim baits. I had a great pre-spawn on Sam Rayburn throwing these on a Alabama rig in the Houdini color. Very durable and great action. I just ordered the 5” two cavity mold to try and start making my own.
  5. Great idea.... I didn’t realize that was an option. Thank You
  6. Thank you all for the feedback. I feel like you answered what I was looking for
  7. Thanks for that. I did see a video where a guy painted them with a high temp paint and got a better result. My thought was that by the time you bought the paint and spent the time to coat the mold, the cost savings really wasn’t there vs a cnc mold. Is there any molds (brand or types) that you guys would recommend staying away from? It sounds like you all have great experiences with the main name brands.
  8. Thank you guys for the replies. Being new to things, there’s a ton of options out there and I didn’t want to spend $200 on a mold only to be disappointed that the baits don’t turn out the same as the pictures on their website indicated. Specifically, there are a few Do-It molds that that are appealing, but I was concerned that the casting process in which they are made would cause the baits to have a less desirable appearance.
  9. Hi guys, first post here and just venturing into the realm of pouring/injecting soft plastics. This forum has been a wealth of useful information. With that being said, there seems to be considerable variation in the quality of the molds from the various manufacturers (I.e. cast aluminum, cnc created, ceramic, etc...). I’ve orderd a few AI molds already and can’t wait for them to arrive, but I’d like to find a few more high quality molds to order (9”+ worms, craw of some sort, frog). If you guys were to rank the various mold manufacturers from 1-3, with 1 being the highest quality, what would your thoughts be on what’s currently available? Thank You!
