Re: what plastic
They do make a Lee pot for plastic but I have heard mixed reviews on it. Things like leaky valve, not stable heat and hard to clean if I remember. You can buy soft, medium or hard plastic plus you can add hardener or softener to any of these. Most people use medium because you can adjust up or down with the additives if you want to go outside the box. Senkos add salt to their bait and that will affect your color a little. I am not a big fan of salt so I don't use it unless it is requested. For plastics there are several companies and most people settle on a favorite brand. Ask them for a sample so you can see how it compares from brand to brand. I prefer to use "Green" plastic so my favorite is from LC. Based on my experience I do not like M-F plastic at all.
