I have a question that has probably been asked 100 times, but, after powder painting the jig head is it necessary to bake or cure them? I know that the bake process makes them more durable . Please give me some feedback.

Thanks

I was one of the ones that has said it really doesnt make that much difference...

I will stand corrected nuts

I cured a fairly large order of painted jig heads this week,and I failed to completely bust the eyes out of a batch of 50 of em,and yes it does make a difference......Took a couple hours to get em all cleaned and a couple of blisters....

I started out curing and then got lazy and quit doing so. I noticed after a while that the powder was chipping off the jighead I was using, tied on another and seen the same thing happening to it. Seeing this made up my mind to go back to curing all the jigheads I paint.

Hey Rad, looks like you might be on to something there. What crappie wouldn't want a bigger meal if'n he's hungry. Course they'd be a booger to tie. But two hooks ought to keep him from getting away.

I have had the same thing happen. The paint is much tougher after curing. You will more than likely lose the jig before anything ever happens to the paint.

I have always cured mine. I have dropped them on the garage floor before they are cured and the PP cracks and chips like glass. I have green trash fish jigs that have been stuck and popped out of rip-rap several times that are not chipped, but if you smack a bridge pillar with them enough time they will start to chip.

I cure all mine as well. If you shoot docks or put a jig throught H3LL then curing them will be best if you want to keep the powder paint on them.

Rad what do you think about making this a sticky note of some sort?
