BTS molds

Recommended Posts

I ordered the 702 craw in 3 inch on Feb 5 and got my mold in the mail today. All I can say is wow, the craftsmanship on this mold is superb. Ol boy did a real solid on this one.

I have that same mold (2 cavity) and the action is awesome. I want to get the angling ai 3.4” ecto craw too just haven’t gotten around to it yet.

the claws do tend to rip off pretty easily, I shot some in a hard ( with a little softener in it) plastic to see how they look but haven’t tried them yet since it’s still frozen here!

I dunno what it is but I’ve never had any luck with that Basstackle type craw. As you are retrieving it, there’s very little movement other than what you impart on the bait.

i agree, the action craws catch more fish for me, even just slowly dragging them on a jighead. i always liked the baby rage craw, so i wanted something similar, the 702 from bts has great action, and from the videos i have seen so does the ecto, i think the ecto craw, with the mold oriented with the claws hanging down will be easier to pour without dents in the claws, which i have had in most of the 702's i have made (no it doesnt affect the baits, just not good to look at!)

Good to hear. I ordered a 6.5" swim worm a couple days ago.

I initially ad ordered the wrong mold the 3.75, so I emailed Bob and asked him to switch it, he got back to me a few hours later and took care of it..great service.

that Basstackle HDX craw can be deadly on a finesse jig on rip rap with a little dot of orange spike it on the end of the claws. It is my go to finesse jig trailer, and that's really all I use it for. And the 702 is a proven fish catcher.
