Can Somebody Please List Everything I Need

Recommended Posts

I'd like to start making my own soft plastics but I don't know where to begin. I want to start off making frogs and work my way up from there.

What are all of the essentials? Links to your favorite molds and other supplies would be very helpful too.

Thanks. Happy new year!

Also, has anyone ever tried the Swim frog mold on Jann's Netcraft? The price seems too low for it to be a quality product. http://www.jannsnetc...ds/440220.aspx#

Same with this frog on LureCraft http://www.lurecraft.com/catalog.cfm/molds/plastic-molds/frogs/5x903:2632

Opinions on these two molds/frogs would be very helpful also

Try one of these folks, great products and all have a starter kit and materials needed, welcome to the madness :blink: :

http://www.bearsbaits.com/

http://www.basstackle.com/

http://www.del-mart.com/shop/home.php

And make sure you read up well on Jannsnetcraft all reports I've ever read is that they are trash and quite dangerous to use now mind you I have never personally used them but all reports are that they are.

i have an extra 2 pc. 3.75" aluminum frog mold I could sell

its from Bass Tackle and its a buzz frog.top pour, hand pour.

makes an awesome frog.

a starter kit is a good idea if you want the molds they supply in the kit.

i believe all of the manufacturers will make you a kit and price it accordingly for the mold/molds you would like to start with. just starting out choose colors and baits you know that you would use yourself!!

That would be cool,

if when you got a starter kit.

you could choose..

softness of plastic

colors you want

and molds you want.

I never got a starter kit.

so they mite just do that.

great Idea.

Thanks for all the replies! I think I'm going to get a started kit from Caney Creek. One of the options is a frog mold that makes one of my favorite frogs :)

Zeiners, is who i bought my starter kit from.. i did some research and it was the best price on the bottles of MF plastic that I cld see. He did charge me a bit xtra for the shipping cause of weight, which was kinda a hidden message, but i'm happy. Just waiting on a microwave now and imma hit up walmart for some pyrex cups.

I have the Swim Frog mold from Janns Netcraft, along with injector, grubs, senkos, flukes, and plastic, all from that site. The frog is alright, not the best, but ok. The sweeptail grub is great, great action, same with the senko and the fluke. The plastic is not the best, but it works. I would suggest Lurecraft.
