Was wondering if anyone knows who makes a mold for the fluke chrome balls.
Tried Do-it and Hilts and came up empty.
Anyone?
Thanks

I don't know if the fluke chrome balls you are talking about are the same as the tap dancer rigs but if they are I just adapted the ball sinker mold to make them.

They are very similar Reel-ality only diff is the chrome ball rigs are chrome where as the tap dancer comes in colors! And adds the always popular top hook to the rig!

Tap dancer rig is sold at local tackle shops! It is basically a chrome ball setup but the ball aint chrome it is available in colors like White, Chartruse (sp?) yellow and maybe a few others. It comes with a leader and a top hook all set up and ready to fish! So basically it is a chrome ball that aint chrome with a top dropper hook! Hope that explanation made a little bit of sense!

I used a do-it mold and carefuly drilled out a second pit for the second eye. works great! made about fifty last winter and they have been working great, so far the white ball has worked best!

Agita, that's basically what I did and then added the bake on finish. However I found the green working better for me. I make mine in 2 oz. and 4 oz.
