Gentlemen as always I'm trying to pass on any info that may promote lure making . I consider the people on the websites I visit my friends . So friends I recently had a custom mold made by Vitaly Osti from Print-A-Lure in Israel . Shipping and all was under 100 Oxford Scholars . The same mold here would have cost at least 500. I have already asked him about shipping to Straya and he says the cost is about the same . If you contact him tell him toadfrog /Brent Thompson put the bug in your ear . What do I get out of it . The same price I ask from everybody . Mention me around the fire at night when you think about it . Best and only chance of me becoming a legend in the industry . Hooroo My friends.

Is this the mold I saw on Facebook? If so, that is a very well made mold with a very smooth finish to the lure's body.

I'm trying to get a video done with it in the water . My swim tank is only .915 meters long. Hard to see much action in so short a distance .For you blokes on FB If you haven't sent a friend request please do so because If you have questions about tackle I'll dig for an answer . I dabble in everything but that dosen't mean I know anything so I would be glad to be a part of your research .

I sent him measurements and photographs . We talked through Face Book . He did all the work from that alone . If I were going to do another I would have him add 25% more under belly and thicker legs . Something neither he or I expected was a shear point at the knee joint . A short strike will break the legs off easily . So I have to shoot the mold in hard plastic which looses some movement .

I use to design and cnc machine plastic injection dies for a company and you would not even recived plans for that money. He has me for a costomer I will even send a full cad files in his choice of format. He is either the nicest guy around or the best machinist I have heard off 
Grab a couple of Z-man lures melt them and inject them into your moulds and see if they are tough enough without modifying your die or even hollow graphic tulle from a linen shop (Spotlight)  to reinforce the knee joints you will maintain flexibility and reduce them breaking off on short strikes as well as adding some flash I get a lot of materials from them for prototypes sparkles , paint ,beads ,buttons and sequins   for eyes. And the wife can not complain when you stop at the tackle shop LOL
