Radtexan, is that two different colors of paint on the jig heads? And by the way those are great looking jigs! How did you attach the eyes- super glue or Sally Hansens ?

It is 2 color grampy. Didnt get a good shot of the orange I tapped on. And yes Sallys. Ive tried several methods of glueing,but none yet I like. Sallys isnt the best but it works pretty well.

Nice Job Rad cheers


Have you tried Baking the Eye's on? I have powder coated then applied the eyes. Baked the jighead & eyes at the same time..

Baked on with no Glue, just what's on the eyes hooked

Action Jackson you bet. They curl just a tad, but they stay on there.

Them are 4mm, measure just a hair under 4mm after baking. But no big deal thumb
