Sorry Gary I got what they had on Friday. I have a order for 100 of them in one color to crank out as soon as I get them. I got enough molds so I can pour 25 at a shot that means less reheats.

Got molds today one tip pour right side with three cavities before the left side two cavity. And it will make a 1/4 oz jig move side to side one of the rare bait’s that will for its size.

Have you tried a 1/8 jig with a #4 hook? That might not be enough weight for it?

A #4 hook in a 3" Ripper might be short on hooking potential Gary. Any way you can slip a #2 or #1 hook in that cavity to make it a better sticker?

Mike, the tips are appreciated! My cnc 3" Rippers work great on 1/8 and 1/4 heads but I tend to favor larger hooks in both sizes of heads.

Gary I haven’t used a 1/8 with a # 4. I use the teardrop wire keeper the 1/16 has a # 2 , 1/8 # 1, 3/16 # 1/0, 1/4# 2/0.

I was lucky enough to get an early production mold for the 3" Essential Series Ripper and you will be very pleased with this mold. I have had great success with this mold. I've been injecting this mold with the plastic at 320-330 degrees. Great flow into the tail section with no problems with dents (by keeping the injection temperature as low as possible).

I've been using the bait as a trailer on my 3/8 oz. Arky chatter baits and it's been super!

The bait has been a real favorite with the Walleye and Sauger on the river on a simple round head jig. It has also been effective on the sand flats for smallmouth chasing bait. Perfect size for smallmouth!

Being able to make 5 at a time is a real bonus. They really eat that bait and it gets torn up pretty fast in the toothy fish!

I had the 3” cnc ripper before, and I love the bait! Got my 3” ES mold Saturday but haven’t shot any yet. Will be nice to make them 6 at a time instead of 1 though! Smallies and walleyes both love the baits.
