Might not be cheap but it's worth every penny!  Also for peace of mind 8)

Agree 100%! 🎯

Once I get that new trailer under my boat, I won't have to worry about rust, cracks in the frame, etc.

And it will have new hubs, bearings, tires, LED lights, etc.

No worries about anything!

I found out a few days ago that mine has been built at the factory and should arrive at the dealer on May 11th!

Mine is a single axle aftermarket trailer. But it's aluminum I beam, so it will never rust.

And, no, they're not cheap, even for aftermarket stuff  :nope:

I gave up on powder painting after giving it a whirl. I'd rather not waste my time with it, so I buy the heads pre-painted right from LPO now.

You just have to catch when the bait has reached its limit

Exactly! Sometimes I get it right and sometimes I miss it and watch as my blades and other goodies take a permanent swim  :facepalm:  (giggle)

Awesome video Curt! I just got some of those heads with the special wire to try out for myself. I have had a lot of luck on those thin wire Guppy Heads from LPO. They catch a lot of fish but wear out fast. You just have to catch when the bait has reached its limit on fish so you can save all the hardware before sending it to the bottom of the abyss! Or lose a fish on a broken bait.

I have an average of 10 fish a bait on those .032 wire frames before I retire them.

I also have never used a fluid bed. But, that wouldn't be the issue. Like Curt said, it probably is an issue with the paint itself. The only thing to try is clean the head with Alcohol, Acetone, naptha, anything you have laying around before you dip. Also try heating it up a bit more then you would normally.

Powder painting is a tough thing to learn. Different colors act different then say plain black, or white. My Chartreuse paint is amazing to dip, along with the green pumpkin. But, when I change it over to my white powder paint, I have to heat less, and dip usually a couple of times to get a good finish. Its a pain really, but its so much easier than painting heads with an air brush, or a rattle can.

Also LurePartsOnline.com probably has pre painted heads you can buy straight from them and save the headache. Sometimes when I am in a time pinch on orders that is what I do. Shell out a few extra bucks and get a pre painted head.
