The new 3" Ripper mold injects perfectly. I used up some junk plastic this morning, injecting pretty fast to try and get the mold to act up and it won't. No flash, no dents. Makes a real nice bait that I'm sure the walleye and smallie guys will jump all over. I'll be doing a pro blue using a thin smoke this afternoon for a couple local walleye guys for this weekend's fishing so hopefully I'll get a report back from them. Hopefully they'll be able to get the boat in the water yet.
This is a Mo's Milk I did using a paste form of pearl. Interesting stuff to say the least. It seems to be solvent based so it mixed right into the raw plastic quickly and completely. The plastic cooked up fine. Its more of a super thick liquid than a paste and was measured up using a coffee stir stick. I know I'll be adding slightly more to the pro blue this afternoon. Its pretty cool stuff but at this point I have no idea what other colors may be available or the cost.
The river behind our house has opened up with the recent warmer weather and I may hang this Ripper on a jig and go cast it a few times to see what the action is like and how slow I can work it and still get the tail moving.
