Welcome to Do-It's Custom Baits forums ritsick160!

I looked at the Senko site and found the color but it won't let me expand the color plate at all so no help here.  Can you take a good picture of a bait and post it here?

GY Dark Melon:

Make yourself a relatively-close color and roll with it.
Don't use all that plastic and colorant/flake trying to match a factory color.
Too much emphasis/value is placed on color, especially matching factory colors.
Think outside of the programming.

If the lures were for me I’d be content with being close but you know how some people need it to be exact or they think it won’t work. It would have been better if he didn’t give me the wrong color name. It’s supposed to be Dark Pumpkin

I'd say 2 parts Brown and 1 part Cinnamon.  Both colors are available in X2.

Just me personally...any color similar to that, I'll use a nice X2 Green Pumpkin Brown.  Do-it's X2 GPB is my go-to with anything even remotely-similar.  Anything and everything in the ballpark of that color genre gets GPB.
