Wow, top of the line machining. Are the black dots in the top 2 molds air vents?

Do-it founders collection? Some one of a kinds probably and the orange handle might be an original Semi-Custom prototype.

The bottom mold looks like initial R&D of the Do-it Crappie Jig.

Unique historical stuff for those that would appreciate them. And they would indeed pour some sweet smooth face heads.

The last one is intriguing and well thought out. It uses a Mustad 33903 #8 or 10 for the larger cavity which is a 1/28th and #10 or 12 for the smaller - 1/60th. I think it's more for ice fishing - looks like a UFO...

The mold 2nd from the top - had small magnets that had to be removed. The hooks would not lay flush.

Except for the inlets #3 & #4 exhibit some signature features of Do-it design and look vaguely familiar. #3 in particular looks interesting as an attractive alternative to ball heads with the hook eyes close to the head.

Dunno Led, the top row of the bottom heads look bigger than 1/28.

I kind of thought they looked big also. But if they are a flat disc shape rather then a full round sphere, they likely 'look' heavier than they actually are. Rolleyes A larger weight size of the Do-It Crappie Jig i bet would be nice for vertical bait presentations..... thinking Lake Erie yellow perch.
