I received a 4-bait order for refinishing from one of my customers and I am looking for some advice on what prism tape to use. I thought that I had read a while back on this board about a new manufacturer of prism tape out there that was producing a thinner, more user friendly tape to be applied to musky baits. Any help that you folks can lend is greatly appreciated. THINK SPRING!!!!!!!!!!

I'm not familliar with a new tape producer. But, I have found a tape product sold in advanced hobby shops for putting on the wings of RC airplanes. I have been using a silver and a gold on some twitch baits and it really looks great. It's super thin, I'm sure because of weight issues with the planes. They sell it in strips about 4"x30" for about $3.00.

I have seen that RC airplane film, but only in metallic gold and silver. Do they have it in true holographic finish? (I would think that would look pretty cool an airplane, too)

WTP Inc, PO Box 937 Coloma, MI 49038, www.wtp-inc.com, sells a material they call "Transparent Holoform Tape". It is thinner than normal reflective tapes and comes in 28 patterns/colors and widths from 1/8 inch to 6 inches wide (by 100 feet). You do have to buy this item in bulk. Send me your address and I'll send you a piece to look at.
