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!
