Crappieday, which type of plastisol would you recommend for doing very small crappie baits like tubes and small minnows and assassin type jigs? I have read a few different forums and they had diferent things to say about different kinds. like seperation "if you can explain that" and some that you have to mix with a drill and some you do not. I think you are experienced enough to give a good opinion on this. I do not want to have to mix with a drill if I do not have to.

I have used a few types but I keep coming back to calhoun plastic. I prefer the soft formula for more action in the baits. supersoft is too soft. med aint bad. saltwater formula is to stiff for small baits. just rock the jug back and forth really good and you will be fine. when you cook it up to working temp let it sit to the side first and all air bubbles will come to the top and you can skim them off. reheat and your ready to go

Calhoun and M-F are the two I prefer the most. M-F saltwater does not settle/seperate like Calhoun. The M-F doesn't seperate but still shake the jug. I buy 5 gallon jugs of calhoun and use a paint mixter just for ease of mixing.
