Shad Mold Question

13 posts in this topic

Hi guys, new to the board here. Good stuff. I have a question for anyone that has the Do-it Style #9 Shad Head mold. Are there any other hook options for the 1 oz. 1.5-oz. mold besides the 7/0 hook suggested? Does anyone know of an easy modification?

Any info would be great.

Thanks,

Brandon

I just checked this mold and the #5/0 and #6/0 (Eagle Claw 630 Hook) will fit the 1 oz. cavity...but the hooks are a little loose and will rattle in the mold.

Im sure there is, i just dont know off hand. My suggestion would be to call Do-it or stamina and ask them. The guys at do-it are fairly good to deal with. Stamina is great however unless they carry the hook they probably wont know.

Another option is call mustad.

In order to use these hooks in your mold you will have to take off the center eye post from the mold. I use a Dremel and take off very little at a time. You might have to add some RTV to the hook channel to keep the hook on center.
