  1. Perhaps its the brands I use but I get one pour from white glitter- it almost completely disappears on remelts...
  2. I am looking for any leftover unpainted spinnerbait heads 3/8 or close ( 3/0 or 4/0 hook - brand not important) ....I have many many swivels and blades and want to make up 40- 60 spinnerbaits for the local High School Bass Team....let me know what you have - cash ready! ..... Thanks! P.S. also looking for some 1/8 unpainted heads for myself....
  3. Wondering if anyone has experience with this mold- how well does it shoot with a 2 color set -up, etc Im currently looking for one and need some intel on how they work - Thanks ahead!
  4. Looking for a Do It 10 1/2 inch Ribbon Tail Mold...........Thanks!
  5. Anyone out there have a solid recipe for the color "Raw Chicken"? (insert joke here_ ) Was a 5" soft plastic Jerk Bait -Manufacturer slips my mind - Thanks ahead...
  6. RIP Del.....one of the best .......
  7. Hello again....Yes- they were the original Buzzbait blades- before they were made from aluminum- and were plated-usually nickel-although I have seen copper plated ones. The blades I used to have were made of VERY thin stock and were probably not much heavier than the aluminum blades still available. I dont believe I've ever seen one with a stainless blade.
  8. Hello Everybody....does anyone have a source for STEEL buzzbait blades (Delta Type 3/8 oz size)...I've checked my usual places- and no luck...Thanks!!
  9. Hello Patrick..I am interested in a couple of the 6 1/2 inch swimbait molds..are they still available>...Thanks ..Dave pontodp@aol.com
  10. Great tip OS...it is this kind of sharing that makes TU what it is....Dave:worship:
  11. Hello Chad...man, good luck!! I live in Central Florida....the HOME and ORIGINATOR (Culprit- circa 1975) of the classic Red Shad color. ...and man, its one of my hardest colors to match!.. Heres my best...to 4 oz. of plastic for each color...Top color...plain black is ugly, it just does not look right...try 20 drops Black, approx 3-4 fat matchheads of Black Lumina powder and heres my secret -approx 2 matcheads red pearl powder!! keeps it from being too dark...I don't use pearl red on the bottom color...it turns it a nasty pink shade....Bottom - 25 drops Maroon ("red shad") 2 matcheads Black Lumina powder, 1 fat matchstick of Pearl White powder and 3 -5 drops of Black to preference..makes a nice replica of Red Shad....warning...if you cook in your scent in like I like to do it WILL change your color..esp. on reheats. Same with adding green glitter to the bottom color...looks nice for the first pour but the glitter bleeding on reheats TOTALLY changes the shade.On this color I add scent after...it makes a big differece! Let me know how it works...Dave
  12. I want to make myself some close reproduction of Cordell's old time favorite, the Crazy Shad. I would like to make these out of a suitable hardwood, with similar action to the plastic CS. Anyone have an opinion on wood type, and where I may be able to obtain a couple dozen of these blanks? Thanks..Dave Ponto St. Cloud, FL
  13. Hello all. Man, I hate to hear that...another pioneer leaves us. I was lucky enough to meet Stan about 70-71 at Les' Thomas' old custom rod shop in Indianapolis during the Boat, Sport, and Travel show. Les was another "grumpy old man" but I wished I would have had a tape recorder to record that conversation. Even back then Stan was telling him that you needed a slower action rod to properly fish a spinnerbait. The new (for that time) "pool-cue" CA series of blanks from Fenwick were all the rage amongst the newly formed BASS tournament crowd. Now, all of the pros use slower action rods for spinner and crank bait fishing. Man, those days of the beginning of competitive bass fishing were pretty cool, especially when I was a wide-eyed teenager....Dave Ponto St. Cloud, FL
