  1. It may cost less to just buy trailers wholesale in bulk than making them.
  2. It sounds great but requires a large investment to be competitive. The upside is if you're selling wholesale, the excise tax is based on your lowest selling price.
  3. MF & Lurecraft make a floating plastic. BP/Polysol soft formulas float as well. Everything else we've tested is either a neutral buoyancy or slow sinking. Chemionics advertises a floating formula but it's more neutral & complete junk like the stuff they produce for Dead On.
  4. That sucks, would really like to find some of the 6" Ribbon Tail tail molds. Bought ten of their 6" ribbon tail molds several years back & really like a few of the tail molds.
  5. Just saw that Lake Side Molds is back in business. I wonder if they will be rereleasing some of their older designs.
  6. 1. Depends on your cost, overhead, packaging, etc. Work out a good business plan & talk to suppliers about bulk pricing. Go as far as writing up and negotiating contracts. 2. Don't use names other companies use. If using off the shelf molds from the usual mold markers that everyone else is using, some of the newer ones are running in the grey area with their designs. Stay away from any of the mold makers in the Ukraine. Most if not all the ones they're machining infringe on U.S. patents. If you start designing your own baits & get molds machined, always consult with a patent attorney. This will save you money in the long run. 3. Talk to an accountant that specializes in manufacturing businesses & go to your local tax office. In the long run, it's always best to have an accountant to take care of everything. Yes, it's going to cost more but well worth it.
  7. Sorry, not a fan of the off-set designs. They create hot spots & aren't consistent.
  8. How do you keep the mixing blades from hitting the injectors?
  9. When we use injectors, we'll use canola oil cooking spray to lube them. Vegetable oil cooking spray will work but may get sticky over time, canola oil don't get the sticky residue.
  10. Yep, Lureworks Green Pumpkin SP 156 is the green pumpkin brown Zoom uses.
  11. Try Print-A-Lure www.palmolds.com
  12. Unless it's water soluble, it's pretty much useless. Fish will pick-up a few scent particles when they grab the bait but that's about it. Oil base scent is there to catch the fishermen.
  13. BTS 706 is as close as you're going to get without infringing on the patent.
  14. We use clamshell packaging from eclamshell.com
  15. That first color is the original MF brown grape. Lureworks chameleon has more of a redish purple color for the base color.
