    I'm actually molding a couple of 8" Gizzards tomorrow.
    Not sure how they'll turn out though...extremely delicate creatures :p

    John, We have injection molded gizzard shad available painted and unpainted thru McKenzie, VanDykes and Research. Like all our baitfish the unpainted ones can be heated and bent to a harder curve. The plastic is unbreakable. They measure 6 1/2" long.

    AA, do you deslime them with aluminum sulphate?? works great.
