    Flex 200

    dont try to microwave it, i had seen some stuff on facebook about people using a micowave to heat it, so i figured i woul dget the trial (1oz or so) that they have on the site. long story short it exploded my pyrex before it got to 300 (needs to get to 400 i believe). when it says on the package "do not use in microwave" believe it!
  2. just went to all three sites (bait plastics, calhoun and dead on), checked 5 gallon buckets to my door (wisconsin). to my house bait plastics is the least expensive. could be different to other places! bait plastics : 126 dead on black bucket: 142 dead on white bucket: 158 calhoun: 150
  3. its kind of sad, dead on gets a great reputation from youtube, but if you watch the videos saying how clear it is, you cant even see the sides of a 1 cup pyrex, and it always has bubbles in it. i use bp and have been very happy with it, might try calhoun again but im happy with bp so no real reason to change. either way ill never try dead on after hearing what real bait makers have to say. youtube and some facebook fanboys sell a lot of dead on, not for me thats for sure!
  4. as a disclaimer, the are just getting started in lead molds so the selection is limited, and they are CNC molds so they are pricier than do-it. https://fatguysfishing.com/lead-molds/ Fat Guys Fishing is now making lead molds, they have a EWG ball head and an EWG ned head on their website now (in several sizes of both) and are adding new products every day it seems, they posted a 14 cavity standard ball head jig on their facebook a couple days ago, bt its not on their website yet. i personally have 18 of their soft plastics molds (and a dual injector on the way) and have not had a problem with them, the customer service is great and the molds shoot perfect. i will be getting some of the lead molds eventaully, when they release some of their other sizes, but will not hesitate to do business with them!
  5. they make a much cooler looking bait than a standard laminate, but IMO they dont catch any more fish than them. they do, however, catch a lot more fisherman!
  6. they make an ok product, due to my experiences with them i wont recommend them. they are hit and miss with the quality and the customer service. best advice i can give on them is to do your research first, look up reviews on the facebook bait making groups.
  7. n2 manufacturing gets good reviews on the bait making groups on facebook, seem to have quick turn around times. basstackle is pretty hit or miss on injectors but can check them from time to time and get lucky. i know fat guys fishing is working on making injectors, not sure when they are going to release them though and if they will have dual kits available right away or not though.
  8. shipping is free, and its a solid not a liquid so its like 6lbs of pellet type stuff in a gallon container, not sure if it measures cup for sup with liquids or not. but i agree its a crazy price, they have samples of it up for 2.99 so i might try it a little on my next order but wont be making many baits in it for sure!
  9. not exact copies (obviously), but angling ai has the "action worm" in 3.6 and 4.1" available in a 5 and 10 cavity. fat guys fishing also has a 3.5" drop shot worm thats similar available in 6 and 12 cavity versions, both companies also have them in open pour versions.
  10. all of the companies that make pigment make many purple colors, like stated above most arent called just purple. up to you which you want to use!
  11. i use cooking spray on my rods (both core shot and tube molds) it works great, super cheap and lasts a long time. i just spray it every time i inject, on a paper towel or hand towel, then roll the rods around to make sure they are lubed
  12. add a drop or 2 of white to each to opaque and brighten them up a bit
  13. your most common places are going to be dead on plastix, bait plastics and calhoun. i personally use bait plastics 242 and love it, and i have used calhoun in the past and it was very good too. i havent used dead on but hear good things about it (some bad too!) best bet is to get/buy a sample from each and choose what sorks best for you. watch worlds worst fishing on youtube, chris has many videos on making plastics, from the beginner to the advanced.
  14. fat guys fishing just came out with a 7" fatty mold yesterday, not sure if its on their site yet. i have a few of the smaller sizes and love them, not sure its what you are looking for but worth a shot!
  15. it just looks like a not too opaque chartreuse with black flake that gets taken over by the green pumpkin side somewhat.
