V-Hull boats ride and handle rough water MUCH better than the old tri-hull configuration. That = SAFETY.

But you already knew that, huh?

I think race car drivers dress like Pro Anglers

Why do some anglers make so much effort to put down how other anglers go about their business?
Why do some people cut others down , then try to explain that they aren’t cutting them down, just stating facts?
Why do some people feel the need to always be right about subjective things?


GOD is good!

geez grubers getting almost as much grief as that guy from Florida!

Yamamoto gets about $75/100 retail on his senko and a generic stick worm is about $25/100 and people buy what they want or can afford. I wouldn't wanna lose a $20 lure so I haven't bought many at that price, but some folks got the dough to blow but that doesn't necessarily make them a better fisherman.

Even the prima donnas cuttin you don't know everything gruber and are showin how small they are takin the cheap shots.

stirke king is made in costa rica, having been there many times I can assure you they don't pay 15.00 an hr. to make kvd spinnerbaits or xd lures.

https://www.commercialappeal.com/st...e-maker-bought-texas-investor/844794001/



like everyone else on here, I have bought lures that I thought were too expensive but bought them any way cuz I thought they would work, most do.

like bass boats, outboards, all the electronics etc. our sport is a seasonal thing, limited optimum window for sales overall. places like Tx. ga. and all the states where we can fish all yr. pretty much don't generate enough income to keep mfrs. afloat till the season is back.
ever been snow skiing? look at the cost of those items, same scenario. while they may do more r&r for ski equip. I can promise you it is a high mark up on the equipment due to a limited opportunity for maximizing sales.

co. has to balance out the books over a yrly basis when in seasonal sales or they won't be around long.

What would we do without the insight and colored commentary from folks like gruber & jeff from iowa. They keep it interesting for sure.

It’s what they think the consumer will pay compared to similar products!

No reply is necessary, just my opinion not trolling so don’t go there!

I don’t see anything predatory about it. Predators give the victim no choice. Company puts out a bait and it’s a choice whether you buy it.There are $15 jerkbaits but there are also $5 jerkbaits. If you want an example of predatory practices look no farther than the health care system.
