View Full Version : Paint for downrigger ball

02-13-2018, 08:55 AM
I want to paint my downrigger ball to look like Pac-Man. What would be the most appropriate paint for this? Will just a rattle can work or will it flake off the lead very fast? My downrigger’s only used in freshwater if that makes a difference

With prep work the paint + primer rattle cans will work just fine Once you get a chip, repaint or it will all flake off
Here's some mooching sinkers I painted about 20 years ago, they've been chewed on and used in the salt for reference https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20180213/0921257c3338ce79b119a6fbec9057df.jpg
