  1. I use the 637 3.5” mold and love it. I’ve not used this mold but remembered seeing it on his page. Hope this helps. https://www.btsmolds.com/swim-bait/606-swim-bait
  2. @Cami worth a shot. I’m drinking a 16oz local brew at the moment and can’t help but notice how tall and slim it is. Might have to give it a try. Thanks
  3. @Musky Glenn great tip. Has me thinking. Appreciate the response.
  4. @DaBehr I always wear gloves and other protection when pouring, but that would have been a heck of a hard lesson to learn on my own. Thank you for sharing.
  5. These are a special find. Thank you for sharing. I’ll let you know how it works out.
  6. Hi all, I’ve recently started airbrushing a 3.5” btsmolds swim bait, model 637. I’m using the SpikeIt/LureWorks CoLure Coat paint, in my novice opinion, the stuff works great. Recently ran into a problem with splotches forming, but realized I didn’t do a good enough job removing the oil from the bait first. (Side question, I’m using pre-moistened lens wipes(isopropyl alcohol), is there something different better to use?) Anyhow. I have a quart of Clearasol 4650, I thought using a narrow, but taller than 4 inch cylindrical Pyrex styled heating container would be best for dipping. Anyone have any ideas, search keywords, or experience with using a regular old 1 cup size Pyrex measuring cup? I am concerned with waste & folding of the bait, should I go the way of the measuring cup. Thanks in advance & Stay Well!
  7. Thanks for the info guys. I was using DoIT Hyper Hi-Lites Blue Pearl. I bought some M-F Hi Lite Violet and it works great, when mixed with plastic only, the plastic stays transparent and you are left with just a nice violet hi-lite. So if you are looking to create the Hi-Lite effect in a transparent base, I don't recommend DoIt hyper hi-lites (insert color) pearl, they will give you the hi-lite effect, but will also turn your plastic a chalky white color.
  8. Could you elaborate on this? I've tried searching for the answer, it seems to me the pearls add a white chalky color along with the hilite color to your plastic. Ideally I'd like to add a blue hilite to 6oz of plastic, the result would be a transparent bait with a blue shimmer/hilite. Is there such a product?
  9. Really awesome work! 

  10. Hey guys, Maybe I am out of my mind but I tried searching what to do after shooting/injecting/pouring soft plastics but I can not find any relevant post. I could of swore, that one time I came across a post, that said after shooting soft plastics, you should place them in cold water over night. I've always done this. Sometimes I've added garlic scent to the water or even salt, I don't know why the salt, maybe I thought some would transfer to the bait through osmosis!!! Recently I have started to shoot some baits that are very heavy in salt and I feel as if the "water cure" is sucking out the salt, is that possible? Does anyone have any special process they follow after pouring/shooting soft plastics? For my next test, I was going to shake them in salt and laminate bag them, or put a little garlic oil in a laminate bag and call it a day. Thanks in advance. Charles
