Default Chatterbaits W/ACA Custom Jigs Skirts

Just finished putting together 20 chatter jigs with Longdraw's jig skirts, they look better than the camera flash makes them look. Powder painting jigs only takes one or two to learn on. Confidence was high when I tried the first blade powder painting, oh god, it looks bad.....then I tried the red on one with a different method, I have an idea on how I can do it, but I'll have to slow down when I'm doing it.

They work on Longdraw's jigs, these are different hooks with a direct blade attachment, I am sure they work.

How are you heating the baits? If you are not using a heat gun you might give that a shot. WAY more better than the open flame IMO.

I am not using a heat gun, but I've seen it done that way, and I do have one. Once I get down to getting more done with the regular lead heads, I will most likely start doing it that way.

Funny story about Powder I use to own a Powder Coating shop back in the late 80's through mid 90's anyways a few buddies purchased about 1000 jigs and I would paint them. Well we where running black all day and it was agreed that half would go gloss block, so I spend a few hours rigging the jigs on our rack system and sticking heat tape around the hook area to about 500 jigs. Send the jigs down the line powder go's on and into the oven for 30 mins to cure the powder. After 30 mins the rack is coming down the conveyor line with only hooks all the damn lead melted off

^ I've melted my share, but I can't say I have done 500 at a crack!
