    Default Playing with 3D eyes

    Been experimenting with 3D eyes and think I bout got it figured out. Found the 4mm works best on these minnow spins.

    Those look good. How did you apply them?

    I’ve been using super glue then top coating with Sally Hansen hard as nails. I’m looking to start trying UV to speed up the process.

    Actually started trying the 3D eyes when I received one of your ties in the last jig swap. The last order, I coated the jig with hard as nails and then applied eye before it dried. Fished with couple for 3 hours and eye stayed on good. Earlier I coated some after application but it left a slight glaze on the eye. Still experimenting with 👁 s. Really liked your ties.....here is the end results.

    Nice. I haven’t noticed a haze on the eyes. If anything the hard as nails made them glossy. I notice it helps hide the glue which will leave a haze. Glad you enjoyed the jig.

    Nice work. Try different color eyes also. Right now my fish (CNBGs) are keying on blue or phosphorus (glow in the dark) eyes - tells me the fish are running deeper.

    Looks good to me. Best stuff I found outside of a 2 part epoxy or something similar is gorilla glue clear. It goes on clear and won’t discolor the eye. I have yet to have an eye pop off either. No need for hard as nails.
