Do they do returns? And how nice were the hooks on these baits? First thing I thought is that a customer ordered them, changed the hooks, and sent them back with the cheaper hooks as a way to get better hooks more cheaply. Doesn't seem like anyone there would have the time to do that. Or maybe I'm just paranoid and thinking like a criminal...
