3rd coast walleye jig molds
You          


I have found a custom mold maker out of Michigan. They have some nice walleye jig molds along with some other jig molds. They aren’t cheap at $200 but they machine some nice stuff. When I can afford it a rock-a-roo head and scrounger jig mold would might have to be ordered.
They only have a face book page as of right now.

RE: 3rd coast walleye jig molds
that is some great looking work he did there. looks like he may have used a do it blank mold. the do it blank molds would be great for getting hot and not cooling down as fast. they use what seems to be an aluminum alloy that is hard for durability, and also holds that heat for good pours. I like the line tie position on that example for verticle fishing.

Nice machine work. The sprue seems a bit large but if it cuts off clean that's ok as long as it fills good. Just alot of excess lead there. I wish when someone makes a mold that they would put decent handles on them. I totally despise the too short do-it finger burning handles. The old little mac's and Hilts worked much better and didn't fry your fingers if you slipped in between the handles.

They are totally machine from bar stock. They prefer not use do it mold blanks since they feel they get farSuperior product. The mold faces of do it molds would have to machined flat to get same precision fit and really negates using them.
