Gluing eyes

Recommended Posts

Any suggestions on types of glue work best for soft plastics.   Ive tried super glue, super glue gel , epoxy and eyes keep falling off..  I have been forced to clear dip my bait which I'm not a fan of.  My baits are oil free.   Only thing i can think of is the backing on eyes is separating...thanks in advance

Have you tried www.prosoftbaitglue.com.   YOU TUBE demos look like it might work.

That's all I ever used and had great luck with it, but I feel the need to break down and ask this stupid question.......

What do y'all mean by clear dipping and would someone care to share how it's done?

Clear Dipping - After gluing on the eyes, dip your swimbait In clear plastisol covering just past the eyes.

The top swimbait is Clear Dipped.

Yes

Thanks, Dink.  That's really cool. 

The Megabass Spark Shad is one of my favorite swimbaits, but I notice their eyes are constantly falling off.  You'd think Megabass would have enough money to fix that.  LOL.

It's like Gary Yamamoto told the audience at the Anglers Marine Bass a Thon one years.  He was asked how to keep senkos from getting torn up so easily.  He said, "Just buy more worms."  Megabass is probably just happy to sell more baits.

And they would be right because I keep buying them! Sometimes the conversation on the boat is funny though.....

"Hey son look at this one......it actually has BOTH eyes!!"  :D

I've never seen any ill effects of the clear dip. If anything it adds a little strength to the head without affecting the action. Some baits that I paint the whole body is clear dipped.
