A quick question, I just got myself a resin printer, at least for proto typing can you get away with Standard "abs like" resin then print a "production" mold out of the high heat plastic, when you are sure the body works. 

I’ve never attempted it I think the heat deflection temperatures of most resins is pretty low. I use petg for mold on my fdm and that works decently well. It’s deflection temperature is much lower than that of the plastisol but I’m not sure resin would compare. Plastic is a bad conducted of heat. I’m assuming your just trying to save on resin and money right? You could prototype single cavity molds or print out just the lure out of any resin so you can see it and judge if it will work or not.

Yea I'll have to do some shopping around, this was from a local shop and I don't mind paying a bit of a premium for shopping local but for at least the high end stuff amazon is cheaper. But I do like being able to get some thing in a half hour vs tomorrow so I will still get some stuff local.
