I'd like it if he did!! Has been nothing but a bonus for the sport as a lure modifier/creator, relentless as a top dog(making others work extremely hard to catch up), and he's a straight up good guy! Maybe he "is" starting to slow down as he isn't winning much anymore but hey if you took all those "KVD" baits away from his competitors THEY WOULD SUFFER!!

I disagree. There are tons of good companies making baits that catch piles of fish without the KVD initials. They don't care about his name on a bait except wishing it was theirs for the income probably haha.

All the guys that say they use baits with KVD name on it are sponsored by Strike King.

meh. I will put the H20 Squarebills up against the KVD 1.5 & 2.5 any day of the week for 1/2 the price.

The name on the bait does nothing but sell more baits to fanboys.

I agree about the H20 squarebills. They catch fish.

kelli- I really like the H20 baits. And they use the same line tie as SK lures. But they didn't do that til after SK did. As for paint colors and finishes they are fine to me!

Slim- plenty of guys who aren't sponsored by SK use that stuff... see it a lot on shows like MLF and all. "can't beat em join em" mentality!!

chance- what part did you disagree with? I didn't say other companies didn't make good lures. I just said if you took all the KVD made lures from his fellow competitors that they wouldn't do as well.

I like strike kings kvd series of baits for sure....but also like a lot of other small bait companies and lures. I agree on the above statement, he has done nothing but help this sport.

I wish he would figure out a way to make the bills stop breaking off the squarebill cranks

Mr. Fouzman-I read your comments on here all the time and I must say that I admire you. Agree with you most of the time. However, everyone acts like SK came up with the squarebill idea. But the Rebel R series and the Bagley's (and I am sure there are others) were making squarebills before SK was ever formed and many fishermen were catching a lot of fish on them and not telling anyone. And I don't know how KVD kept a straight face talking about the Red Eye Shad in commercials this year talking about how they put a Tungsten One Knock rattle in their lures and, while not saying it, but acting like it was a new idea. And I am not crediting Xcalibur with the One Knock deal, but every lure manufacturer had to wake up and see what happened when they quit making their One Knock lures last year. As far as I know, Cordell 1st came up with the 1 knock deal many years ago in some of their Spots. My point is, while H2O might have knocked off everyone else's squarebill, most of today's lure manufacturer's are only modifying someone else's lures. One day, everyone is going to realize that KVD is not a god and he doesn't walk on the water. And yet it is hard to tell that by the comments of some. He is just a guy who is talented when it comes to fishing.

I think he will win it. He typically doesn't take his foot off the gas once he is ahead. I guess he hadn't gotten the memo from all the talking heads saying he finished.
