  1. I have been using the regular liquid colorant
  2. Hey everyone, I have a color that I am trying to mimic and I can’t seem to get it right. Has anyone ever recreated strike king’s green pumpkin purple swirl? I have tried using lureworks purple but it doesn’t look the same and doesn’t work as good as SK’s

    Paint brand

    Hey y’all I’m gonna get started painting my own hard baits, I have made plastics for about a year now and I’m happy with where I’m at on that side of things and want to expand. What brand do you all use for your plugs? I have been doing what research I can but I’m still confused on what brand of paint to use and all that

    Hey y’all have any of you used Lurecraft’s purple colorant before? I just got my dual injector in and my go to color is green pumpkin purple swirl in a rage bug and want to get it as close as humanly possible
  7. Hey y’all I’m wanting to make some green pumpkin purple swirl cause it’s killer rn here in Indiana but I can’t find any purple pigment. Does anyone where to look? TIA
  8. There’s definitely money in it but it can cast a little or a lot at start up just depending on what you get and from who

    I am looking for unpainted balsa plugs that only have the lips and rings on them. I am not the best at wood working so i do not want to waste the money on the completly un finished baits. anyone know where a feller can get some?
  10. For those of you that sell your plastics which do you guys find is the most popular swimbait size. (3.8" or 4.8") I normally only use these sizes and I'm hoping to buy a new mold in one of those sizes I just want to see what you all have the best luck selling. Thanks for the help!!

    New rod

    Hey ya'll I need some help. I am looking for a new spinnerbait and chatterbait rod because the one I am using now just loads up way to much on a straight retrieve no matter the size of the bait. Right now I am using a 7' Medium Heavy fast action 13 fishing Defy black, and I normally throw 1/4, 3/8 & 1/2oz spinnerbaits and 3/8 & 1/2oz Jackhammers. What do you all recommend? I would prefer a Duckett rod because they are not only one of my sponsors but my best sponsors. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
  12. Dirty Sanchez is reaction innovations summer craw in my opinion.

    Hey y’all I’m thinking about saving up and getting the Old town Sportsman Auto pilot 136 so that if I have a couple hours after work I can just load it in my truck and go and don’t have to use my tourney boat do any of you have this kayak or one damn close to it? Any opinions on it would be greatly appreciated!
  14. What colorant are y’all using to get the bottom side of your summer craw? I have been looking all over the place and can’t seem to find anything anywhere close to it
  15. I am thinking about switching all my reels bearings over to Speed Spool ceramic bearings especially in my Diawa Tatula SV’s and Shimano SLX does anyone have any experience with these? Are they smoother? Do they help with casting distance what’s the pros and cons?
  16. How many of you have experimented using powder pigment over regular liquid colorant? What all do you guys use and is there any advantages to using it? Any help or tips would be appreciated!
  17. I’m not trying to brag but I feel like my green pumpkin is damn near perfect to Zoom’s. I start with 2 cups plastisol, 15-20 drops Do-It Molds green pumpkin brown colorant, add 1/2-3/8 tea spoon .040 black flake and 1.5 table spoons salt
  18. I don’t have a lot of experience with open pour molds but what I do is I take a Q-tip and dip it in worm oil and coat each cavity in worm oil along with putting a splash of worm oil in the plastisol itself and that seeks to give it a good shine
  19. I would personally try Lurecraft green pumpkin, it’s more on the green side than Do-It molds green pumpkin brown for obvious reasons. I would add 10-15 drops of it to your plastisol and just looking off a picture I’d say 1/4-1/2 tea spoon .008 or .015 silver flake and the same amount and size of black flake
  20. Hello everyone, I am starting to work on a new color that zoom has made for years and I cannot decide which colorant will give me the closest result as zoom’s cinnamon purple. What do you all think should I use Do-it molds Cinnamon or their pumpkin seed colorant? Or is there another colorant that y’all use to get the same res
  21. What color pigment does everyone use to make their watermelon seed baits? I use lurecraft green pumpkin and is just a hair to dark for my liking and i have tried just about everything to lighten it up. Any help would be greatly appreciated

    Cedar Run

    How well do they paint? If that makes sense. I love making tackle and have a small company and I am starting to make my brand bigger and I want to make as close to big name quality as I can.

    Cedar Run

    Have any of you used Cedar run outdoors for your hardbait blanks? They have a few blanks that I have been wanting for awhile and cannot find them anywhere else.
