mann's is all USA made, even their crankbaits. If where something is manufactured matters, Mann's would be a good company to support.

Im sorry I didnt answer your question, but im pretty positive most everything (thats not JDM) is chinese made in the tackle world. I never heard of 6th sense being USA made since I been knowing about them these last few years.

A lot of the PRADCO lures (Bandits and Normans) are made in Guatemala.

Bill Lewis lures are still made in Alexandria, Louisiana.
The Mann’s EZ series deep divers and 1- minus wakebaits are very good.

By all means support Mann's. Whenever I pass by there (Eufaula) I wonder if they'll make it much longer. The China onslaught is brutal.

yup thats why im was real surprised to hear that Bill Lewis was in the US. No idea how i missed that....they should be shoving it in our face that they are US made! LOL

I have some manns blanks I havent painted...but they dont really seem to have much I like. Bill Lewis has come out with some good stuff that caught my attention and I just never got around to ordering...gonna have to add in some Bill Lewis stuff next tacklewarehouse order

I was thinking more of the hardbait side. I thought that one company thats in the US poured a lot of the plastics for some of the heavy hitters like zoom....but all the hardbait stuff was done overseas.
