Anyone ever tried to cast lures from Polywood from Industrial Polymers. Just curious as how it compares to featherlite. I've tried the Hydrospan from that company to enlarge castings and was pretty impressed.

Broke down and tried it. TERRIBLE PRODUCT, TERRIBLE CUSTOMER SERVICE !! Alot longer demold time than they claim and very brittle. Head of lure snapped off while inserting a slightly snug lip. Still waiting to here if this is normal or a bad batch from an e-mail I sent a week and half ago. Cliff

Does the Polywood have a fluff on top that has to be mixed back into the resins? If so then it's similar to F-lite in properties. Also if it has a crust on top then air has gotten to it.

Yea, it's very similar to FL in the can (filled with micro-ballons) I mixed it part a and b very good with a jiffy mixer before mixing the two. Measured by volume and weight (no difference). Was tempted by the lower price and lighter weight. Sounded perfect for some larger muskie lures that I wanted something between FL and 16#foam. I'm using Alumilite and mixing micro-balloons into it myself right now for them, and it is working great, just real costly. Found some higher density self-skinning foam on a couple of sites, may give that a try when I get back into the experimental mood. Cliff
