    I got into soft plastics and injecting recently and have been having a lot of fun with it.

    Wondering if other bait makers could chime in about where they're getting their molds & supplies.

    A few pics of my humble beginnings

    Got a dual injector and made my first laminates

    I currently only have 3 molds, looking to get a few more and make a few as well.

    Tight lines all

    You will definitely catch fish on those!
    I do pour / inject my own, but I'm more into using a candle to fuse parts together from different lures to find unique shapes and actions. Size matters so making a lure shorter may make all the difference how many times it gets hit.

    so I got these "Do-it" molds from http://www.lurepartsonline.com/
    You can buy direct from "Do-it-molds" https://store.do-itmolds.com/
    I went to lurepartsonline, because I was able to get everything I needed in 1 place, molds, plastisol, color, glitter, injector, molds etc.

    There are a bunch of other stores & suppliers, let me know if you want more info.
