Well coming into winter months I am starting to think more about progressing this home made lure mallarkey.

Specifically into 2 part moulds for non flat-top lures e.g. senko or rockvibe type lures which are "round profile". Much easier to design my own with fully round bodies, I found trying to make a totally flat side for moulding purposes quite tricky, a 2 part mould would allow me to work out the kinks etc.

So I have been searching the net and not finding a lot of useful stuff about 2 part moulding to be honest so will keep looking.

i did however find this:

You'll need Google translate unless you speak French, which i don't so it's funny reading it in auto translate but get the idea...

Best bit about the first link is telling you what grade plastic hardness for differing types of lure. I pretty much had it like that anyway but would say that my LRF paddles do mowt until you use the soft compound. Must do you a vid of my own design ones, they have an unreal action which the pollack love.
