  1. A buddy of mine was wanting me to make him some jigs to use for redfish down in Florida. Being it’s saltwater, which I know nothing about.. would I need to use a corrosion resistant hook for the jigs? If so does anybody know where I can find them? The molds I’ll be using are the ARK-3-AY Arky and the SUB-3-AY Stand Up jig molds. Any info would be appreciated, thank you!
  2. Awesome thanks guys! Will the 3/0 Gami 114 fit in all of the mold cavities? Like the 1/16 & 1/8oz?
  3. Hello, I was wondering if anybody knows if there is a 3/0 hook that will fit in Do-It’s Midwest Finesse Jig mold? I personally use the 1/0 Owner 5313 hooks but a customer asked if a 3/0 would fit. Thought you all would know best, thanks in advance! -Alec
  4. Awesome, that gives me plenty of options. Thank you all!
  5. I was just curious to see what adhesive you all recommend for applying 3D eyes onto swim jigs. I've been using BSI 30 minute slow cure and it seems to work well but I would like to find something that doesn't take so long to set up. Thanks in advance -Alec
  6. Ok I see what your saying now. I didn't even catch that earlierwhere it said rayon instead of nylon. So I got the right color just wrong type of chenille, That makes sense! Too bad they don't still make it, the rayon will have to do. And thats ok, its close enough for me. Thank you Smalljaw!
  7. Thanks guys I made a pretty good guess on the color and material then. Kelly green is what I ended up ordering. Not exactly the same but very close for sure! Original one on left and Kelly green on right. Thanks again everybody
  8. Hello I'm new to tying jigs and was wondering if anybody can tell me the green material used on these bodies? To my knowledge they don't sell these specific ones any longer and would like to try to make some myself as similar as possible. Ill attach a picture. Thanks
  9. Tthanks Edward! I ended up just pulling the weedguard out and installing a new one when I finished painting. I will have to get some of that tubing for next time though
  10. Not sure on the brand but I did buy a pair of gate cutters, and your right they work much better than just twisting the sprue off. Hardly have to file the sprue mark at all now!
  11. Thanks Cadman, I just went and bought a file and a heat gun to replace my propane torch for heating. Back in the lab now, hoping for better results!
