  1. With a very heavy heart I want to let everyone know that David Alexander, Bear, passed away on Thursday, May 13th. Services were yesterday. It is a blessing as he is not suffering anymore. My prayers go to the family as they deal with this loss. R.I.P. my friend! We had some great times!
  2. I have experienced the same issues that have been brought up in this thread and the tube thread. I have tried all of the floating compounds and have had the same issue. I also have tried the black bucket in the slat water blend and it has done fine, but I have only used it for swim frogs. I hope they can get it figured out as I really like a lot of the other properties the floating blends have.
  3. Just to clear the air on Bear. He does not have a brain tumor. He has Dementia and Alzheimer. He is currently in a care facility as he was a little too much to handle for his family. They did the best they could for as long as they could. It really does suck. There is far more to all the story than that but it is not my story to tell, but he and his family were completely dumped on. I will convey your prayers and best wishes to him the next time we talk. Thanks
  4. I relayed all your prayers and thoughts to Bear. He GREATLY appreciates them. Please keep them coming. The Bear clan has a mountain to climb and are trying their best to make lemonade out of lemons. Thanks

    I just wanted to say a big thank you to Cadman for going over and above to try and get me what I needed for a friend of mine on some jigheads. I would not hesitate to refer him to anyone that asks and will not hesitate to call him in the future for any other jighead needs that comes up. Thanks Cadman!
  7. Where can I find someone that makes these jigheads in bulk? This ia a picture of the 1/4 oz size and am interested in 1/4 and 3/8 oz heads. It is an Arkie style head with twin wire guards. I believe it is a Gami EWG hook. Thanks in advance. Z
  8. Where do you guys get your plastic for vacuum forming. Thanks

  10. The way it looks in this post to someone that has no knowledge of the events between you and Kajan a month ago is that on the 31st of October you stated he inspired you to design a stir system. Then on November 1st you stated that you had the problem solved with a stir system that will run while holding your different types of injectors. Just looked like you designed it, made it and tested it in one day. I just know from experience it takes much longer to get a viable product.
  11. Mark, I just call them like I see them. Years ago the Ol' boy that, from what I remember, started the gearmotor on the presto pot stirrer was promoting them on here to sell. He was told that he had to be a board sponsor to do that. He became a sponsor and was still told not to promote in the posts. His banner was enough. Bear basically went the same route. His deal was a little different. He was a sponsor. Someone else would try to post and tell everyone about some of his products and it would start a pissing match. Bear would try to explain things and get shot down saying he was promoting.
  12. I have not posted here in a while and I really don't have anything to add to the original problem of discoloring plastic. It happens with all light colors when you reheat regardless of what heating system you use. Practice and patience will help over time. The thing that is aggravating to me is all the BS that is posted in this thread. Has it changed on this site for people to self promote themselves or their products? Is it because that he is an advertiser? Hmm. Interesting. It is happening and not only on this thread but a few others. at least if they are going to do it, at least be h
  13. Just a curious question. Has anyone tried painting over it yet? Using water based paints. Wheels are turning but do not have time right now to try it. Thanks
  14. I fished mine this weekend and had similar results with the softness. They seemed to hold up ok, but if I wanted to I could probably scrap away the clear coat. I think part of my problem is that I dipped them with only 15 minutes between coats. They never seemed to get as hard as my Etex. that being said Etex is not totally rock hard anyway, but it holds up really well to regular abuse. I am going to try some more with a different process similar to Cougars. Time will tell.
