Out of production lures can go for more.

What you may not realize is the individual hand-made detail & attention given to each lure. One of the expensive swimbaits I have is tank-tested and tuned at the factory - for a specific buoyancy at a specific temperature! That time costs money, of course, and it gets magnified between the factory and the consumer.

Roman Made is in Japan, as are a number of the companies that make very expensive lures. Trade tariffs with Japan in particular add considerably to the cost of selling a Japanese product in the USA. This is one of the reasons all the lures from Japan are pricey compared to others not manufactured in Japan.

And we thought $25.00 for an AC Plug was outrageous in the day.

So do you jump in and retrieve in 30 feet of water. What about a fish that breaks off and swims off with it. hmmm

Yeah...Hinkle Shad can go for up to 500. Plenty of videos online of people backlashing the cast and watching their 500 dollar lure snap off and fly out into the lake. Lol. Happens a lot with 5oz plus baits.

High quality large swimbaits are an entire world of their own. Anyone interested I would recommend a video called Southern Trout Eaters. Long but packed with awesome info on Huddleston 6"and 8" baits as well as Triple Trout and a few others.

It's rumored that Butch Brown has caught over 1600 bass over 10#s on swimbaits. There is no doubt that they produce.
