if want them completed PM sjolymore on here he may be able to help you out. Also not sure where you are but if going to shad corner there is a colorful character that lives right there who sells them 1$ ea or 6/5$ and has tons of colors plus he is entertaining


good luck

model paint works well as does finger nail polish ! and both are available cheaper than jig head paint!

Hey Deon2005,

Bass Pro Shops carries good selection of powder coat paints as well as lure paints.

Good luck getting them across the border.Tried 3 years ago no luck!Ilke some of the hotter colors when I can get them.Made a few new mixes in colors and tails for this year.Not to make and issue or badmouth a buisness but I have seen many first time anglers come out of that shop down in middleton with garabage colors and helped them out up on the river to catch fish. The free fishing weekend last year was a prime example, 10 or more went in looks like they didn't ask the right Questions,I helped them all out sold over 40 darts andwas happy to see every one of then score with the poison from my shad kit.Not one went away without a big juicey burger and someting to drink. Are lunch in the park turned into a tailgate party.yes i even had a beer,fishing with some fishermen from Locport.They brought lots of grub.We had a blast thet day.

I can do darts for 1.00 each without tails. Mine are 3/8zo I have green, green-white, pink-white, orange-white, red-white, red-yellow. I would like to get rid of 20 or more at a time. I don`t mind shipping them out either depending on how many and the weight should not be to much more then 3.00
Those are must be big darts I use 1/8 oz and less!

3/8 is the typical size Ive seen for sale at shad corner and on ebay. with the accept ion of 1/16 for fly fishing. i find 1/8 works great on the slow moving waters but the faster runs i like a little more weight for casting distance and to get to the fish faster.
