    I will be ordering some more mag zits in a couple weeks. Hope some are left. There were none available when ordering last year.

    But walleye fished 2 times on the bay and they were hitting the regular size zits well, just need to slap a treble on them and i know they will be a great producer. Bring on the ice!!

    Mr. CREEPER,

    Which of the Mags strike your fancy?? I had no Mags last season so you didn't miss out.


    These are prototypes that will not likely go into production this season. Just something I was playing with. Mr. WaNger might like to take these for a test drive though.

    BZ Glow CC Gill
    [​IMG]

    Main body glows orange then purple, glow orange belly spot, glow green stripes, multicolor glitter, yellow/black eyespot.

    Didn't hit the mix perfect on these. The glow purple is the darker purple, not the lighter lilac. Still mastering the technique.

    The old style glowed a bit redder than the replacement but was more pink when not glowing, the replacement looks red when it's not glowing and more orange when it is.

    Here is the Fry Glow Green Bug Eye with the new red:

    I wish I could still get the old glow red, but that doesn't look like its an option.

    The CC is a painting technique that I have been working on for a couple of seasons. At first I could only get it to work when the paint was still wet. Trial and error got me to the point where it would work dry but I haven't mastered consistancy from batch to batch.

    Under low intensity, short duration light, it will glow orange for a short time. Longer duration or higher intensity light it will glow purple(the same area/feature).

    Write me down for 2 of each of the original 7 mag zits you posted in post #1. Any idea when they may be available? I could order as soon a Friday.

    I try to pick a date that I can release as many patterns as possible to save people on shipping. The reality is that I still paint patterns til mid-winter because painting is time intensive.

    The Zitz family usually get painted first because they take so long to thoughly dry that the split ring process doesn't damage them too badly. The Mag Zitz will be in the Nov 1st restock. Baby Zitz patterns may be a little later because they will not be dry enough to ring.

    Pressure is on, the 1st coming fast(to me).
