It has been years since I used the seal coat for some jigs.  When you dip crankbaits, do you just dip and hang?  Is there much of drip left on the bait as it hangs and how do you handle that?  I know that's a lot of questions.  I currently use devcon.
Thank you, Tim

I just dip with a paper clip through the eye and hold over the can 30 seconds-ish. Then I hang over the trash can you might have 10 more drops come off so there is a lot less waste compares to epoxy. I let it cure 24 hours but the more time the harder it is. I can tell between a 24 hour cure vs 36 hour but still plenty tough at 24

What about the last drop that hardens in the rear hook eye? Or do you check them periodically to wipe that off?

I take a razor and cut it off the eye.

With my bass season about 1/2 over I thought I would report back on the results of using the CS Dip vs D2T on my crankbait. 

Bass and Walleye: 5 stars. The CS dipped baits held up extremely well.

Northern Pike: Solid 4 stars. I did have some scratches...but no total failures with the CS Dip. D2T did slightly better with a little better resistance to the Pikes killer teeth.

Dogfish: Total failure when a 9,5 lb Dog Fish ate a 1,5 Square Bill. He crunched that bait into little bitty bits while in the net. Don't let them get a hold of your hand or fingers...it would be grim!

So...I now have no concerns about using CS Coating on any crank bait I can "Dip & Drip" !

Did you notice a higher catch ratio with cs?  I think it's makes the crank run better too

My dad used to refer to them as "tackle busters"... they're the only fish that I've had twist the hooks off a Rat-L-Trap (twice) without breaking 14lb mono  :-X
