  1. Why don't you just give Kim a call at Lurecraft? She'll tell you
  2. You might have some luck with this guy...He worked/learned from Ron E Bee for 10 years http://www.bradwiegmann.com/lures/hand-crafted/229-flat-sided-balsa-wood-custom-crankbaits.html
  3. It's what the 1.5DD is to the 1.5
  4. I misted the Createx Sunrise Yellow as well over the silver foil on the top. With the bottom bait, I misted Polytranspar Medium Green Bass over Createx Pearl Pineapple over the same silver foil....the top was misted over white stripes and the bottom has the black stripes over the misting. You can see how different colors under, over and the overspray as well can give different looks. Even the amount misted. I don't think you can make any two exactly alike if you tried. I have never yellow like BobP used but if he says it works....it works! There seems to be an endless way to achieve the same
  5. They were the only vendor that ever carried them.
  6. Dudley hasn't restocked in a couple of years really...He's making swim baits

  8. MTG76OEMBN KVD MTL POINT, 2X-SHORT SHANK, 1X-STRONG TREBLE BLACK NICKEL I've been using size 2 on 1.5 and larger....size 4 on smaller blanks from Dinger and other vendors for a few years without any complaints... https://www.captainhookswarehouse.com/index.cfm?page=products&manid=2&catid=12&sizeid=0&view=1&offset=11
  9. Are these for retail store display or shipping? Ever think about putting a business card and the crank in a worm bag? Thick enough so the hooks don't poke through and the card they could stick in their wallet. Or a magnetic card? When I buy a crank, I open it up and toss the clamshell along with your info because it just doesn't fit anywhere....Clam shells are best for display.. Just a thought
  10. None necessary...I didn't look at it that way at all....but I thank you for your concern. The only tourneys I fish is my monthly club tourneys...we average 1/2 dozen boats or so. That's about the max amount of people that are willing to tolerate me!
  11. Just because it has no or little odor doesn't mean it's ok to to breathe it in. Nobody is more stubborn than me. I poured plastics for years without proper ventilation and designed ,made and polished jewelry breathing in gold and silver dust with the same mindset. Even with the fresh air system, I tend not to walk over and flip the switch just for one or two quick colors. I also have a paint booth with exhaust, but when you're coating a dozen lures in Createx White, the particles are just floating around and being breathed in. Well, I'm not painting this week because I'm sitting here with t
  12. I've been using the BSI 30 Minute Slow Cure Epoxy for about 6 years. I love it! I first tried the 20 minute Finish Cure and like Ayetti states you do get more working time maybe 6 baits than the 30 minute slow cure, but I find it requires 2 coats. It's very forgiving as far as mixing as Musky Glenn said. I squeeze a 5 count of each in a plastic medicinal cup. Hit it for 10-15 seconds with a drill using a wire from a spinnerbait with the end bent at 90 degrees. I dip the epoxy brush in DA poured into a glass shot glass type of thing. Mix it AFTER mixing the 2 parts and all bubbles disperse imm
  13. You'll never have to buy another brush...watch the tip size. Like BobP says .035 I have seen some with .03 which might be more work in having to thin a bunch of colors.....parts are readily accessible which is just another plus!
  14. I had the same problem with 5 guns. Called Iwata and he told me to put just a little oil on it. That didn't work. This is the guy that does the repairs along with another woman. I ended up sending them to him. My brushes ranged in age from 6 months to 6 years. They normally charge $25 plus any parts.....He sent back all 5 and didn't charge a penny. I've only used one of the 5 he cleaned and after an hour it did the same thing. I haven't tried the others as long as the one I'm using works fine.......He also said not to use Createx Restorer at all and not the soak the gun. He has a demo on Y
  15. I remember reading a while back that dipping does not make for an evenly spread coat. I use a .050 tip when base coating my baits.
