Small embroidry hoops at wally world .50 ea. Works great on flat sided baits and not to bad on round baits with a little stipulation.

A framework for holding the netting is the way to go if you're after production. Something that will work good for the procedure is an old wooden tennis racket. Used to find them at the thrift stores for a couple of bucks. Anyhoo. remove the strings and enlarge some of the holes along the edge to recieve the press in plugs used in the automotive industry. This will allow you to adjust the tension or replace the nettin quickly. You can also remove the top radius of the racket to make the netting conform to the bait. Which in my opinion, is a personal preference as to do or not. With some practice you can learn to roll the bait under the netting while spraying. which has one benefit, you can spray the scaling on both sides without a position change

Yes. Both hoops have tullie material in them. If you try this on round or bigger baits just leave a little extra material in the hoop before you close it up. MAV
