  1. Hook rash is normal.... trying to balance weight to function is something your going to have to determine yourself. Description to explanation to actually doing it is almost impossible to replicate from area to area because of temperature, humidity, storage and type of finish... So the more time you put in the better you will get. If you have any exact/direct questions, there is a lot of experience here to answer.
  2. Easiest way to figure out if it's lack of weight ....put some weight on the front hook and try it.
  3. Use the manufacturer specs for UV Resin...here are the ones I use. Amazon.com: 3D Printer UV Resin Curing Light for SLA/DLP/LCD 3D Printing, Solidify Photosensitive Resin, 405nm UV LED Lights with 60w Output Affect : Industrial & Scientific
  4. any dealer preference?
  5. You can lead a horse to water.....but you can't make him drink.
  6. KBS takes up to 2 weeks to fully cure in favorable conditions, If it's not above 70 there is a very good chance of multiple failures and that is not even dealing with humidity. Personally I went with UV hard cured resin to eliminate all the hassle.
  7. I have posted so many times about KBS.... read and understand the instructions!! otherwise you will have bad finish all the time.
  8. Best thing for people using KBS is read the instructions completely!! if you don't the learning curve will really hurt. KBS is not forgiving when it comes to temperature and humidity, so stay in the numbers.
  9. This is a great explanation!!! get off your A$$ and do it in real life, just don't sit read and watch videos.
  10. painted and finished.... just need to throw them.
  11. Alright guys, I did put in an order from Fishhead lures on the Nov. 12th and they are in my hand on Nov. 14th!! That's amazing to me! Baits look good but until I paint, finish and test.... I can't say how good they are.
  12. My suggestion is you have to figure it out for yourself, We don't fish your waters or baits... I think it would be easier to pick you a wife. Personally my trick is also co-poly but it fits my style and baits .... for me you can't beat P-Line original. Also there are many tricks to keeping the line memory to a minimum that take just a second or 2. That is where time and effort on your waters/baits with your style, put in the time for yourself and it will pay off better than anything anyone can tell you.
  13. You might try Fishhead Custom Lures .... I have not personally bought any from him but he took over the best supplier I have found. If you do buy from him I would sure love to here how the quality and service are.

    It's like asking for the perfect anything, it's subjective to the lure, water and species of fish. So being very specific would help.
  15. For me, I usually let the bait sit for a day after I foil it.
  16. I would be willing to say not enough weight in the bottom of the lure, for better help is it wood or resin? Normally lipless baits are smaller at the top going to wider at the bottom.
  17. Fishhead15, Dinger had the best blanks that I have seen! the question is "Are your blanks going to be the same quality as Dingers were?
  18. Normally if your bait lists to one side. weight is not centered. bait is off... meaning that left and right side or not equal. If the bait is tall... you're not using enough weight. without pictures from multiple angles tough to nail down the problem. My .02
  19. I only use water based paints and I still use a filter booth. 20 inch fan attached to a storage container with a furnace filter attached to the opposite side. If you're going to paint/finish in a basement it would be a good idea to pipe fumes out of the basement. Most finishes are pretty bad stuff. The other problem I see would be high humidity in the basement.
  20. I personally don't fish Muskies but from what everyone talks about wire thru is the way to go.
  21. V-block would help but also forget the band saw unless you have a very expensive one, the blade wobbles and moves with the slightest pressure. I personally use a precise dovetail saw, you will need a bit of practice.
  22. YouTube Butch Brown goes into detail how he does it but does not tell you the type of foam he uses. Many different types of urethane foam to start with.
  23. Weight placement is my bet, I am guessing the bait it is wood, that would leave me to believe that you don't have enough weight or not perfectly inline. Guessing what's wrong without seeing it is quite difficult.
