Brite-bak Foil Tape

6 posts in this topic

After reading so many good things about this stuff, I have finally decided to give it a try. I rarely foil baits because I find the process frustrating and rarely seem to get the effect I am seeking. After shopping around, it seems that shipping from most suppliers seem extremely high. As much as the tape itself. Where do you all find good deals on this stuff? Thanks!

I've bought foil tape in 2inch & 4inch rolls at Home Depot....most stores of that nature would probably carry something similar usually in the plumbing/sheet metal dept's.

I also got mine from Sunshine Glass. Not a lot of sources on the internet. I really like the Brite-bak silver foil. Not so much in love with the "gold" Brite-bak, which is an orangey brass color, not gold. When I want gold, I shoot transparent yellow over the silver to get a light, bright gold.

Surfk9, aluminum duct tape works but is not the same because it is several times thicker and not quite as bright. Not a big issue on very large baits but on bass size baits, the thinner tape smooths down neater and has a thin margin that disappears with a single coating of topcoat. The Brite-bak also shows underlying 3D features better than duct tape over plastic baits, and it takes scale embossing very well too. I've done lots of baits with both tapes and the Brite-bak is better in every way if you don't mind the modest added cost.
