How long does the process take from the time you inject the mold until the time you're able to pull it out of the mold? I'm currently pouring lead and I know the lead is basically instant so I was wondering if it were similar for the plastic baits as well. Good looking baits on the link you posted.

Those molds are hand poured, not injected, I believe. It takes a little longer than lead, not sure as to the exact time. The thickness of the bait has a lot to do with demolding time. You don't want to lay a hot bait out on a flat surface, or it will get a flat spot in the bait...

Oh, that makes sense. I was asking because some of the pictures showed a table full of baits and was curious how long it'd take to whip that out. Like I said the lead goes fast but it makes sense that the soft plastics would need a little longer cure/cooling time. I'm still on the edge if it would be worth doing my own or not.

if you have as many molds as i have it doesnt take but about a half hour to make several 100 baits my best time so far was on watermelon/purpleseed senkos and we made right at 900 in 1 hour and 5 minutes!! but we have 50 cavities of senko molds in hand injection "no hand pouring here" except for some shaky worms in an rtv mold and then we have 22 molds of it so they go fast as well!!! but if you wanted to make just a few for yourself a good microwave and a steady hand you could make that table full in a hour just dont leave!!
