Title: Glitter Size
Post by: parrothead on 05/03/21 09:27 UTC
Hey folks, wondering what "size" glitter you use for Senko type worms.  I bought the small size but feel it's too small.  thinking about buying some medium size (.035 or .40).  What say the group of smart folks out there?

I use .015 and .040 in mine. I'm also one of those glitter heavy guys.

For me I use....

.040 and .015 in my bass baits, and
.008 and .015 in my crappie/bluegill baits

Hope it helps.

so im weird with glitter, unless you are color matching a bait for someone, its all personal preference. i tend to go lighter on glitter than most people out there, and i use different sizes for the same color almost every time i make it. i use: .004, .008. 015, .025. .035/.040, .062 and .125, just depends what im feeling that day. bait size doesnt matter either, to me. i use .062 in a 2.5" slim stick bait all the time, and .008 in a 5" swimbait. glitter is just a part of making things personalized in home bait making, dont think you have to follow what everyone else does, do your own thing and enjoy it!

Appreciate all the replies.  Agree that it's primarily personal preference; but wanted to see what others think.  Next time I buy I'm going bigger just to see the difference

I like the   Lureworks .040  hex glitter. . I have some 35 square cut, but like the hex better. Next time i order i'm going .040 hex & .015 if they have it in hex & if not i'll get it in  square too.   The two different sizes & shapes  look good  contrasting  against each other in my opinion.

.015 and .040 should work great for your senko. I mostly pour Crappie baits so its .015 and .008 for me.
