Question about soft bait material.
« on: 09/12/21 10:34 UTC »
Hi, I haven't been in recently but I remembered how many things I learned from you and I would like to ask something again if I can. To make my soft baits I use mainly Plastisol and its varieties but generally white liquid, which is heated in a microwave oven and becomes transparent. It is colored and injected into the molds to make the baits. However, I also see soft lures of another material on the market. It is quite soft to the touch and very stretchy. It is usually in some kind of liquid or covered with talcum powder. After use and placement in a package other than its original packaging, it often spills and dissolves. Does anyone know what this material is and can anyone recommend me a material other than Plastisol to use?
Thanks.

Try MF Easy Stretch.... It does not float. I have caught up to 100 fish on one jig trailer. Very durable.
