Gday all, I have been dabbling in polyurethane lures lately and am having the age old problem of them sinking. I'm following the Engineered angler on Utube and using his 10% micro balloons ratio. They float without hardware but as soon as hooks go on or if I add weight inside to get the swimming right they slowly sink. If I increase the microballoon ratio any higher the resin is just go thick to pour and the resin literally sets while pouring. Cry Im using Alumilite white resin and there micro balloons. Any ideas on adding buoyancy tubes inside to the wiring harness to make them more floaty. Thanks in advance.
Cheers Hutcho
