Just wondering if anyone has tried any of the lures?

They have some pretty low priced stuff. Is it because the lures are complete trash?

Blocked by the proxy server filters, deemed "suspicious."  So, according to my employer, not so much, lol.

That website is not legit.  I'd delete this thread mods.

You're safer using a site like ebay where these same lures are sold in lots of 10, 15, and so on.  I can only imagine having to deal with identity theft and unauthorized charges from a site like that.

 

Maybe I'm just paranoid, but at least I know I won't be dealing with a potential headache!   :crazy:

Yeah right. You wouldn't catch me buying from that webite. I like my lures to catch fish, not melt in my box like most cheap lures do. Not worth it to possibly get ripped off.

There are videos of people that have received orders from that website. That being said there is a big difference between cheap lures and a quality product. As another member quoted on a previous thread "life isnt a sprint , its a marathon"  Buy quality now and it will last, I would rather have 5 heavily used quality lures than 15 junk lures than break after making contact with something. As a new member check out the flea market, most guys sell their used lures less than cost.

Some say less lures and more quality, I am opposite on that more lures, less quality. I always say, if a fish is gonna bite,its gonna bite. If a snag is gonna get you, its gonna get you. They don't know the difference, wallets do.

I've bought some of the Chinese made lures from eBay out of curiosity. Mostly complete garbage. I'll take Japanese, domestic or European any day of the week and pay the premium without complaint.


I'm pretty sure that Shimano, Jeeps, women, rye and the Chicago Bears are the keys to a good life.

I use a lure than is no longer made, occasionally I find them on Ebay and gobble them up.  It's a $2.99 lure that has out produced any lure I can think of for bass and peacocks for me.  I break the lips off xraps (which I do like) all the time, but these lures as cheap as they are last and run true.  The hooks are not very good, when it's replacement time a 3x treb is my choice.

When you set the hook into a fish and the treble hooks snap or the split ring then you will understand  why it is worth paying $5+ a bait.   Compare the materials on baits you can tell which have quality hooks and split rings and which are garbage. I have bought cheap lures because they were a couple bucks on sale but only as loaners or to give them to kids  to mess around with.

I have this chinese lure. Got not to long ago. Believe It or not I bought for 0.50 new. Caught three bass on it so far.There is only one treble hook so it has all force on it, and they are still straight.

For some reason wont let me post pic.

I have the ebay chinese top water poppers and there ok.  But this is why i been buying up by the box the older Bomber crankbaits in the older colors that still work today.  I just can't change my old ways with the newer colors and style of lures. Everytime i put on that bomber crank in redapplecraw i catch fish no matter where i am.  I'm even hooked on the norman thin "N"  cranks too.   Now i wish that someone would manufacture again the BPS Topnocker.   Its the biggest fish catcher i have ever used so far.


The fish are out there just waiting for you to throw the right lure along with the correct presentation so why are you still here?
Motivation is the key to success.....
Remember on a bad day just throw the lure you never tried yet.....

If you want some cheap, but QUALITY crank baits, go to www.themangler.com . Everyone who has seen mine has been very impressed. They run true, and the hooks aren't bad at all.
