Kay, so there's one vote for the jig-type in a 5inch, what do the rest of the guys think? Also, was thinking of bringing in a swim bait mold one that can be rigged with a hook  and a leader attached to a three way swivel and a weight at the swivel, let me know if there' s any interest for this type of lure?
When I die, will somebody please dress up as the Grim Reaper and attend, don't need to do or say anything, just stand there!

Ok, the one in post 13 is the 4inch version of the last one in 14, so that is the true jig type in a 4 and 5 inch version and the white one in post 14, which seems to have a slightly shaper nose than the blunt ones for jigs.


Will see what the rest of the blokes think and will then place an order for the molds, so far it defs the 4 and 5 inch true jig type molds, seriously considering the other one Charles mentioned, pretty sure, some bass fisho's would want some!

Agree with the guys that 14 looks the business. Perhaps also a 7inch model if you can?

thats a good idea  , one should watch out for the right PT for that rig . Obviously if they spin its no use . I think thats why its not so popular , but its increasing in popularity i think ...
LGF , I wouldn worry to much about the prawn/shrimp .

Ok so the molds I should get are
1.
in a 5 inch, correct?
 
and
 
2.
in a 4, 5 and 6 inch version?
 
Please confirm so that I can place the order for the molds? Then please see if you guys can get colours that you would want these in and post them here or on a PM, doesn't matter. While waiting for the molds from the US I can start getting the colouring right.
 
PS I do have very fine glitter that reflects the colours of the rainbow, gold and silver, black, blue, green and red, in various sizes from extremely fine like pinheads to rather coarse, the size of a matchstick. will mix up some with glitter and some without, unless you guys prefer it without? A
Also, when considering laminates, please stick to two colours only, as I only have a twin injector and honestly have not seen a DIY injector that can shoot more than two colours at a time.

The colours you guys suggested looks like they can be done with some relative ease, not really complicated.
 
Anyhow, just sorting out the shopping cart and delivery systems, (haven't used them in over a year) so will then place the order for the molds.

Personally I think the biggest draw card to a colour scheme is contrast so 2 colours on a lure will be  :win:

they look very good, the 4'' and 5'' will work, any chance of getting a fluorescent one?
I won a stack of lgf's plastics in the raffle and they are excellent quality
when I die, may my wife not sell my fishing tackle for what I told her I paid for it... and I have bought more, a severe case of TA

Dodger, no problems maaaaan, when you're saying fluorescent, which colour did you have in mind? do you perhaps have a pic of the colour, if so please PM it to me?
 
BTW thanx for the vote of confidence on the quality, really very very kind of you!

Kay so with some time between watching and catching the cat, I mixed some colours, pearl, chartreuse pearl, chartreuse and a clear (on Dodger's request) phosphorus (fluorescent/glow in the dark) the latter is very slight but can be intensified.


I have some uv paint but not sure if it will mix with the plastisol, and if the heat will affect the uv reflection/light, will try that soon.


Will see if I can take pics in daylight of the colours and post them. Also, still need to collect some samples from Spickerish to see how far off I am with the colours.
