How long do you let your poured or injected plastic lures cure before using them?

Depends on the hardness of the plastic. 24-48 hours usually. Lay them out in a straight line so they don't cure with bends or kinks in them.
10 lake records, 3 all tackle, and I only added this because Rick did and I have more.

Also depends on temp cool temp is less time, most of mine I leave over nite. I use M-F plastic 24 hrs is fine. On a large swimbait I leave them longer.

I also try to wait at least 24 hrs, but this yr, I was so busy, I didn't have the time,
I poured up the order's, bagged them and shipped them out, lucky for me I haven't had
any problems, customers have only sent photos of bass to me that they have caught,
and more lure order's.

Use the thicker lures the next day; use the thinner designs the same day after letting them sit in cold water for one minutes.
