    Bad hooks

    You always get a few bad ones no matter the manufacturer. What I don't understand is how a reseller that buys a 1k count box and breaks them down into bags did not notice these? If you call them the easiest thing for them to do is just send you a 10 pack of hooks. As for quality control I do not think Matzuo had anyone or they did a lot of drinking on the job. On average 20% of their hooks I bought were unusable. I am not talking about the normal 90 degree hooks that are at 75 and you can fix them with some pliers. The ones I am referring to look like the pics above or are bent 90 degrees in the wrong direction. Allen

    Skirt Strands

    This is the way I do it as well with most skirts. Like Cadman I get some requests for swim jigs with like a 30 strand count. Allen
  3. All the ones I have bought from them are like the bottom pic. It will suck if they quit making them? I can definately find cheaper weedguards but not better ones. Allen
  4. I use this stuff on my spincast machine as well as handpour molds. Lead likes to stick in the funnel area of the metal locking plate and this prevents it. Allen

    Swim jig

    You can buy them in bulk from fishingskirts.com at a cheaper price. You have to call but they will sell in bulk. Allen
  7. Casted in lead after using the resin heads as masters.
  8. Progression of the bait. Resin printed 3d.
  9. Miserable failure so far of this rule. Allen
  10. Custom alien head spinnerbait that was made using a 3d printer then spincast in lead. Custom blade to match the head theme. Both the paint on the head and skirt are made from glow in the dark material though I am not happy with the Wicked paint.
  11. Shouldn't this be listed as a hard bait? Allen
  12. Where can I find the list of rules for the contest? Allen
  13. Why not just use powder paint? The rocky Upper Potomac River is where my jigs get sacrificed and I can say without a doubt powder paint is the best option. Now I do airbrush swim jigs and spinnerbaits to look pretty but jigheads are brown, black, or green pumkin. Allen
  14. You want to use the teflon material that smalljaw recommended from Contenti for pins. As for hooks Mustad makes a light wire hook 32724 that is 30degrees that will work. If they don't make a hook small enough for you then you can hand bend some 60 degree hooks to 30 degrees to fit in the mold. Allen
  15. The only time I have had this happen is when trying to powder coat Owner heads. I suspect they have a lot of tin in them to remain shiny for long periods of time. LPO should be using spincast lead which is like 95% lead mixed with antimony but it still should not melt in an oven. Allen
  16. Can I get a list so I know who to bribe? Allen
  17. Guess I need to figure out how to do a collage? I haven't entered before, so I am going all in this year. Allen
  18. Heavier weight for the profile size is why I use them. Helps in clear water and river current keeping the bait from rolling. Allen
  19. Lot of 2 Pro Assassinator 1/2 oz Swim Jigs 12TE-GSF Gold Sun Fish | eBay Are these what you are looking for? Allen
