FAQ

-What is a 'Laminate Plate'?

  A laminate plate is a blank piece of aluminum. It is intended to be used in addition to the mold, it cannot produce baits by itself. Laminate plates are used to create laminates or two-colored baits with only one injector, no dual injector required. 

 

- Confused? Yeah, us too.

Complete 2-Part System: This consists of two molds. A body mold and a shoot from the tails mold. This system allows you to create a two-colored bait with as much ease as possible. 

Extra Main Mold: This is a shoot from the tails mold. Lay your bodies into this mold. These molds cannot create full baits. There will be dents. 

Extra Body Mold: Just the bodies! 

Traditional Shoot from Head: This mold is just like every other mold we have! You can shoot it normally. 

Mini-System: Don't need a lot of cavities? This is a small mold that has both parts of the system in it. Shoot the bodies on one side, then lay them in the other half and shoot the tails! 

Slide System: Pull the brass rods up and shoot the bodies, slide the brass rods down and shoot the tails. No need to wait long, shoot within 30 seconds for a seamless adhesion. 

All in One System: Similar to our mini-system, this mols has both parts of the system in it. Shoot the bodies on one side, then lay them in the other half and shoot the tails! This system has more cavities than the mini-system. 

 

- How long will it take to receive my order?

   All of our molds are made to order. Our lead times are always displayed at the top of our webpage. A lead time is the time from when we receive your order to when it is shipped out. Please be patient when ordering newer molds or different cavity counts as this may add a few days to your lead time due to programming. Keep in mind, we try to spend the weekends with our families and fishing, so orders will not be shipping Saturday - Sunday.
