G'Day all,can anyone tell me with certainty which are the earlier Taylor Mades
painted eyes or stick on,i have conflicting info on both Confused
would have thought painted were the early ones myself,but.

There may even be two different painted eyes.

Laurie and Gristy,
I don't know about the 2 painted eye styles, but all the painted eye TM's I have are all Yellow Iris with a Black Pupil, although the Pupil has changed size here and there.

I did email Robert some time back to ask some Q's about lures I have and his reply was quite informative. The lil one at the front centre with the alloy bib, is one of Roberts original Nippy Shrimps, he was quite surprised that one has survived so long in good condition.


Here is the progression on the eyes from paint to a basic colour stick on format, to the current chrome eye. Lure is a Belly Buster

Roper.Basstard has a couple of trout patterned lures that I am sure have eyes with "3 rings"
Maybe he could post a pic for us...even better, post the lures to me.LOLLOLLOL
I am fairly sure I have seen them somewhere else.

I just spoke to Rob Taylor about his lures.
He registered his buisness in '96...but was making some lures well before that.
The painted eyes were the first. then he went to stickon eyes 6 years ago.
The reason for the stickon eyes, was a commercial one.
He needed to be able to finnish his lures quicker (cheaper) to compete in a very competative market.

Carl, not a day after Lauries post about 2 different coloured eyes, I saw a pic on ebay of the yellow. white and black eye. I couldn't tell if it was painted or a sticker, but you lures have the same colours.

Laurie, did Rob say which was first, Yell/Wht/Blk or Yell/Blk and where the Red/White/Blk fell in the timeline??
