Poison Tail Jig Mold
« on: 10/07/18 17:28 UTC »
I have the mold with the 1/8 oz head in it.  My pin for the weedgaurd doesn't fit the 1/8 oz cavity, looking at he cavity it looks like the is no indention for the pin.  What am I doing wrong and how do I use it so I can have weedless 1/8 oz heads?

That size takes a smaller weed guard 5/64 FG12

I think you should just cast it inside the mold...

Or use a 5/64 drill bit or similar.

   It's been a long time since I bought that mold but I think it comes with two different size pins.

It looks like a bad mold. I am surprised it made it out the door. I would think some one would be looking at the molds to make sure they will work properly before they are sent out.I would send it back and get a new one.

Hey Bryan,  Your mold uses two sizes of FG inserts.  The 1/8 oz cavity uses the FG-12 while the remaining two larger cavities both use the FG-30.  Give me a call at 319-984-6055 and I'd be happy to get you set up or answer any additional questions you may have.

Chubs - Each mold is inspected for quality and accuracy before it goes out the door.  We pride ourselves on producing the highest quality fishing tackle molds in the industry.  Quality matters.

Bryan M, PM me your address and I'll send you a couple of pins. Years ago I purchased 5/64" diameter SS rod from speedymetals.com and cut my own pins for the 1/8oz cavity. Now, the pin by itself will slip out a bit so on the bottom of the pin simply wrap a piece of masking tape around it and it will stay in the slot without slipping.

  The picture of the mold wasn't even the mold in question. It was 2X's mold. Who knows what mood he's done to it. Or how the picture was taken. 2X isn't complaining about it. Only you are.

 Ok but still not his mold. And if that's the case the picture of the mold may still have the plastic on it.
