I just discovered this stuff: [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

The guys at Hookup Baits are also selling it and even have videos about how to use it. (I found it a little cheaper on eBay.)

Thanks for the heads up Bob.
I have been using a cigarette lighter to repair my plastic.

This is definitely going to save me some money!

Saw this in an eMail from HUB recently.  Just watched the videos (thanks for posting, OB!)

I've got some Mend It on order - should be in Thursday.    

Generally, my HUB's die from three causes:

* wear out from fish (strikes cut them, misses, get chewed - they call it 'bass fuzz')

* wear out from structure (dragging along the bottom, bouncing of rocks, pilings, mussels, etc.)

* torn from the catch / release process

I will slide my hand down the line, grab the HUB with all the grip I can muster and lift the fish that way to my lap / stripping apron.  Makes a very fast, easy release.  But when a bass spins (maybe 1 in 15 or so) as I'm holding the bait, it can rip a bait.

Glad I've been saving my chewed and ripped baits.  I have several now, and this repair method looks promising.   In the videos they're repairing the larger, very expensive baits (mostly).... I have several ripped 1/4 oz I want to try to fix.  

I'll post some B&A pics this weekend after my repair clinic.  cyclops

Excited!

I've been working with it. It's not instant setting, but it is quick - 5 minutes. For small tears or splits that hold themselves closed, it's a no brainier. For larger tears, you need to hold the edges together, but only a few minutes.

It's a watery consistency, a little thicker, but not gooey, so if chunks are missing, it will bind everything you have left together, but you can't really build up much thickness.

Over all, I'm happy with it and I'm sure it will more than pay for itself.
