Wayne, 

Funny you should mention the cloudy lips. It sees to clear them up except one seemed to be beyond help. I have some lures I can coat and check with some plastics. Will report back in a few days on that. I will just throw one in the truck and leave it there....

Day three of this stuff, this morning I put four lures on the deck of my boat to see if they would yellow. Two of the lures had cured for 24 hours and two had 48 hours of cure time. All four were stuck to the carpet when I got home a few minutes ago. Almost like Velcro, which left scuff marks on the sides of them. Also one lure that I dipped Saturday afternoon I can actually scrap the finish off with my finger nail, and my nails are short and weak, I can't stop biting them!!! I'm still wondring if this stuff is gonna work! BTW here's a pic of the lip I dipped, I hung it by the tail and some small chunks of yellow got on the lip. I'm scared to try and scratch it off,!its only been hanging for 24 hours.A61388D8-A13D-40EC-BBF7-F3C412B26069-205

Sounds like some type of chemical reaction you would think if this stuff is designed to walk on that there must be some other interaction going on, possible that it's still outgassing?

Do you hit the lures with a hair dryer between dips?  Sounds like you're trapping some solvent under the next dip coat, and it's keeping the lure soft longer.

I found last night that I could scrape the finish off after 48 hrs cure time. As I stated earlier that I dipped 4 times, 15 minutes apart. It is still a little soft. I believe what Mark is saying about trapping the solvent is causing the issue. I will try another one and dip every hour or so while hitting with a hairdryer.

I soaked one (that had cured for 6 days) overnight ... No problems this morning. Dried it off and good as new. I make sure to heat set every color change. This coming weekend a handful will be fished hard (tournament). I'll post the results (and pictures )after

Hey Cougar,

 

Hope you catch so many that your elbows are so sore from reeling them in that you can't scratch your nose for a week. :yay:

I let mine cure for a week now, they are hard as a rock. Fished them yesterday and had zero nicks. I am pleased now, but it sucks waiting for a week to use them!

Two quick questions

1 how did you go in the comp

2 how did the lures hold up

Cheers

Tournament not so good (lots of small bass)

Baits held up exceptionally well... I am going to post a few pics (hope that's ok) this is the extent of the damage ...zero....zero ...hook rash. This is "4" coats, week of cure. Absolutely beautiful....and durable! Looks like the real deal. FYI...these baits were banged off of riprap. Timber...angle iron ...sat on the boat deck... 98 degrees and sunshine for 9 hours.

Cougarftd sorry to here you didn't do as well as you had hoped in the tournament but at least you got to fish I had to pull out of a combined club comp( 3 club's around 90 anglers) due to the fact the engine in my 4x4 decided to die on me

As for them lures considering you gave them a fair old work out, in on and around plenty of hard structure they still look like they Are brand new so I will be taking your advice 4 coats, dry time in between coats and a week to cure 

thank you for sharing your result's with us as to how this has held up under pressure

Cheers

Are those of you who are using the GST buying it at a local Menards? I looked it up online and it said this product was not available for home shipment.

 

thanks,

Ben
