  1. Nathan,

    The Hard Baits Forum has been spammed again.

    I hope you're doing well.

    Happy Holidays!

  2. Kurt, Someone is spamming the Hard Baits Forum again.
  3. Are these Z Man baits made with the stretchy "Elaztech" type plastic?
  4. I use the MUSTAD 32786 NP-BN JIG HOOK and the hook points don't roll, even when I snag a tulle.
  5. Ace Hardware sells .065" dia. residential grade trimmer line that I use for weed guards. It is basically a heavy fluoro carbon line that comes in a 5" spool, so it comes off the spool already curved, and can be installed as close to the hook point as I like.
  6. If you add the weed guard after you pour, you can remove a few strands from it so it's thinner, and then lay it back closer to the hook point when you glue it in.
  7. I buy my air brushes and parts here: https://www.coastairbrush.com/categories.asp?cat=234 I've found their prices fair, and their service good.
  8. I do not pour lead, so I don't know what hooks will fit that mold. I have fished them, poured by a friend, and the ones he poured had round bend hooks. I don't know who made his mold. The Barlow's site has a picture of the finished jig with a weed guard, and the opened jig mold. To my eye, it looks like a round bend hook will work. It also has a chart of which hooks will fit it. Plus they have other 30 degree jig hooks that should work, too. Take a look and decide for yourself.
  9. When it's back in stock, or try Zeiners. https://barlowstackle.com/do-it-poison-tail-weedless-jig-mold-starter-kit/ https://www.zeiners.com/doit/do-it_poison_tail_jig_mold.html
  10. Ted, 

    I agree that it would be a neat idea, but, like you said. reel manufs. would have to keep a huge inventory of paints, and solvent-based paints don't have a great shelf life.  Plus, one of the cheaper "tricks" they use to sell "new and improved" models is changing their reel colors, so I doubt they'll be willing to do it.

    Another thing is how hard those paints are to apply nicely.  I've used both auto and appliance touch up paints in the past, and I've never gotten good results.  They always came out lumpy when I used enough to cover a nick or scratch.

    Sharpies are easy to use, apply a thin coat, and dry almost immediately, so they're much more convenient for me.

  11. If you mix in some yellow carpenter's glue after the plaster's been mixed, it will make the plaster stronger, and it will help details hold up better.
  12. It looks like a transparent (very little) white with some small silver flake.
  13. I would test them before I went to the trouble of painting them, in case they don't work or have problems.
