Soft Bait Repair: Mend-It "Glue". Anyone Try This?

2 posts in this topic

I saw a little blurb in an In-Fisherman's article on soft bait for pike and they had a sentence or two about this product used to "fuse" soft baits together. The solution is a not a glue (even though he mention glue in their product name), its more of a catalyst that melts/fuses the plastic back together. You can get it on your fingers and whip it right off with no residue since it is not glue.

Well, I checked their (Mend-it) HSOforum and they had a demo video where a guy is ripping and cutting senkos, basstrix, and some other higher end swimbaits into the worse possible shape. The guy then proceeded to restore all the baits to practically their original state. He did the entire demo without an edit, so there were no camera tricks.

I was wondering if anyone has tried this stuff and have any opinions on it or possibly heard any first hand reports on how this stuff works. Its not cheap (about $12 for a 1 oz bottle), but if really works it will more then make up for itself in me not having to re-buy all the soft body baits I have.

Thanks In Advance,

Nick

I haven't used that stuff, but I have used Hawg Seekers Tackle's "the ultimate instant glue system."

That is a glue, however. Put some of the glue on, spray on the insta set and back to fishing. Have used it on Bulldawgs and it seems to work....

That mend-it stuff sounds even better.

$12 is spendy, but if you are a musky guy and one lure costs $30 and some of that fixes it, well it is easily worth the price!!!!

    • I was down in NW Iowa this past week.  All kinds of mourning doves there. Soybean and corn harvest is starting;  so spilled grain in the field may hold them there awhile. 
    • Since there has been a great deal of discussion about Black Lives Matter and a variety shootings across the country I thought it might be timely to point out that this s Nat. Hispanic Heritage Month (from Sept.15-Oct.15) first proclaimed , I think,   by LBJ. The aim is to highlight some of the contributions made to this country by Hispanic's and also the independence of several Latino  countries. So far,   from what I've seen, there have been no wild demonstrations and no property damage; have not seen any reports of police having to intervene in any festivals. I have long felt that we do not credit the Hispanics in our midst with the attention due them. Like all other races I've met and dealt with, there have been many good solid hard working citizens and a few real throw backs. Around here we celebrate the good ones. Something to give at least a moments thought to fellas.
    • 13th season at MN Duck Camp for this old girl. Her daughter carries the workload now.
    • We are going to get one of the females out of this litter  
    • Where's the pic's? Male or female. Mine is British, 62 lb male and full of energy. 
    • Yes still like that setup for adding smoke. I decided to try some trays instead of hanging. Last weekends Polish would untwist which I did not care for and a few broke the skins while trying to hang.   Side note the Polish patty's from the left over that could not be pushed thru were great on the grill. Might have to leave some in bulk form on purpose next time.
    • I noticed that Northern carries the Worksharp and extra belts. Cost was $79.99
    • Well, it's comforting to know the duopoly doesn't have a complete lock on everything, anyway.   "Johnson says if he was included in the debates, he would win if he just "bit his tongue" http://www.marketwatch.com/story/gary-johnson-bites-tongue-to-demonstrate-how-debate-slot-would-aid-his-presidential-bid-2016-09-23?siteid=rss&rss=1
    • You could substitute Trump's name in that statement if you support Trump. The best policy here is to "Just say no to A-holes"... (This would also make a great bumper sticker for the Johnson campaign.)
