1/22/18 Starting this
week on an up note. Major progress on all
fronts is the reason. Machining mag meat heads is
going better than expected. Rear hole is
precision drilled on a taper. Allowing for
easy pegging with a toothpick. This taper
allows the head to become free and slide up the line
and a away from the fish. Thusly, fish cannot
use the head as a pry bar to pull a Houdini act.
Lots of fine tuning went into this performance plus.
Granted it takes more time and labor to drill the
holes manually. But this insures each head is
hand trimmed and inspected. So, you don't have
1/21/18 Last week was
loaded with major accomplishments. After 2 years of
chasing all over the world for a reasonable priced
glow colorant, it finally came together in this
year's outstanding X-Glow Magnum Meat Heads.
Had been working off a colorant from a major
corporation's failed attempt to make glow in the
dark toilet seats.
I purchased 100s of pounds of this extended glow
color at surplus pricing back in about 2005.
This was a proprietary formula that took us 2 years
to crack. Then, to scour the planet to find a
colorant manufacturer willing to do so!
Trained another home operation to machine heads.
Now have 2 facilities in a rush drilling/machining
heads trying to keep up. More on this
Fixing my GoPro action cam was a bonus ...more luck
than skill event. While GoPro action cams have
their limitations, these are the cams only I know
that are capable of running an optional audio
system. Plus, think I'm on the right track to
have much improved onboard audio for 2018.
Audio/sound track is 50% of any video.
1/20/18 Production run
of 2018 Magnum heads are in-house ...finally!
Now onto the machining process. Have increased
to 2 teams drilling heads this year, doubling
Hold up was getting the X-Glow color more whitish
than last year's XG heads.
Today's pic showed us nailing the color and
increasing the glow properties too.
While the difference is not quite as dramatic in
person, lens reads the brightest object during
exposure. Been working on on this new XG
glo-green for almost 2 years.
Many consider my heads as the best. To stay on
the top of the heap, there's a pile of unseen work
and dedication that went into Project 2018 XG!
