For those of you wondering about this product and is it really as good as Steve said it is, well I can attest to that.

When I personally met Steve at the 2003 and three World show, we sat and discussed this about Epo-Grip coming out with a product for fins. Since we're all used to the old fins on the market as of today, hot glue or some other punched out fins that have no real realism to them.

So for the next few years Steve and I (mostly Steve) kept on creating a formula for fins and would send some up to me to try out. Each time I wasn't a happy camper with the product for it just wasn't doing what I would have liked it to do etc, etc......

Well now after two years of trail and error he came up with a mix that is superior to any fins that are on the market. It's cost effective, works great and does what it says it does.

If your not sure yet about the product and you either went to the 2005 World Show or attend the National's, I had a Bluegill reproduction there that took First place at the World Show and took The best reproduction fish at the NTA show.

I would stand behind the product or say what I'm saying if I hadn't tried it on a competition piece to make sure it'll do what Steve says it does. So for commercial work the product is great and if you want it for competition it'll also work just as great!

So give it try and if your not sure about any thing just e-mail here at basswtrout@msn.com and I'll also be glad to help out with any questions about it.

I look forward to using this product!

What do you guys prefer to use to make the mold?

RTV? How about a brief description of how you make the mold and what you use for a release? I'm ashamed to say I'm still back in the old days of making plaster casts of fins as in the book Museum taxidermy although I am not knocking the book.

Great product

Move over hot melt & fiberglass fins. Steve sent me a test sample and this stuff rules! You could dang near make a guitar pick out of fin magic! I think it would work well as a fin coat on real fins as well.

Fin Magic works very well with either RTV or bondo moulds which were the two methods we tested.

Just about any mould release material can be used without any problems.

Thanks look forward to using it!
