need help with molding!!

4 posts in this topic

i have been making my own carnks and jerkbaits for the past 14 years . have in the past tried making sillicon mold for crankbaits. i know how to do that!! the plastic to fill my mold is my problem. i have been using a 2 component plastic with some filler material. the result was a solid sinking plastic crank with poor preformence. what im lookig for is a plastic that gives me a solid floating plastic body. that i can weight with led. does any body have any tips on material,web pages with info about molding ????

Suddeth Crankbaits are a 2-part resin foam that is bouyant. They were picked up by Blademaster Lures recently. You can see/contact them at

I believe they use an injection process though.

Also, read somewhere recently about a 2-part resin Hilts used to sell/use for the same purpose. Don't know if Hilts is still around. Someone else here might know.
