    Never ever buy second or thirds on casted fish !! Way to many issues!!
    Ya what a shame this is what’s being produced and gets called quality!!

    He’s not selling anymore. He’s in and out of the biz all the time.
    I’ve posted other blanks that were problematic from him, and catch a bunch of crap from all the people That stick up For this trash.
    I’m sure you can figure it out.
    I have two shelves full of garbage blanks that I can’t even use in my trailer from a couple of suppliers.
    Several thousand dollars gone….

    Question about the small bumps/pimples on the blank. I have some bondo/resin molds that were fine when first made............fortunately also when I cast the customer's fish................
    .BUT with the passage of time some of these molds developed dimples in them. Anyone have an idea as to WHY this occurs? I'm thinking the summer heat here in GA caused air bubbles to expand and create them.
