 Muskgary, I have a couple of molds that I really had a problem with, filling out, and have had decent success, with using a little worm oil.
Mostly, ribbontail worms.

Is it not felling the whole tail I would guess. The ribbon tails I have are aluminum and have to be warm before they pour the best. If yours are stone I would still think they would pour better after the mold gets warm. Try not to clamp the mold as tight in the tail section.

Worm oil will help on aluminum molds also.

I keep a small cup with with worm oil and a paint brush in it on the work bench at all time. If I get a stubborn mold the first thing I do is oil that critter.

Do you think this will help with the "nipples" on the Midwest finesse rig?  They seem to be stubborn for me.

I would shoot that mold S-L-O-O-O-W to let the nubs fill instead of trapping air.

Haven't had any issues with those.  I had a couple minor denting orders when I first shot it but solved them by moving my clamps and reducing the temp a little bit.

Bulk has it down. Slow it down and maybe a hair hotter but not much.

  Yes Walleye Whacker , the tail is the problem area. The molds are aluminum, and I have tried about everything, less pressure on the clamps, hotter plastic, cooler plastic, heat up the molds,and the only thing that has worked, is using a little worm oil on the tail section. It works most of the time. But thanks for the suggestion. I was willing to try anything.
