Default BPS Hard Baits

Anyone have experience with their crankbaits? Certainly a lot less expensive than most of the name brands but sometimes you get what you pay for.

I've been looking at them too. XPS Laser Eye Static Shads look pretty good and the price is right (on sale now for $2.99), but I have a lot of Flicker Shads that look to be very, very similar and can be found on sale occasionally for $2.99 each also. I know that the Flicker Shads are some great walleye catching cranks so I thought to myself why do I need more of basically the same crank? I didn't buy any.

Like I said earlier I'm not buying any but I'm curious. Don't they run well, are they cheaply made or is it that they just don't seem to catch walleyes?

You guys brought up something that I find just a bit puzzling.

How does BP, Cabelas, Scheels, etc. get away with so closely copying the name brand fishing gear? When you go to these stores the shelves (especially BP) are populated with so many knockoffs. Some of them look good, but I won't buy them just because I think that isn't fair. They did not develop them, they just copied them. That's what China does and does well. I try hard to avoid anything that is a knockoff of the original.

We used to buy Northland jigs at Scheels and other places, now they all have the same looking yellow bins, but have their branded jigs. They seem of lower quality, too. The really nice plated gold jigs are no where to be found.

Cheap? There is a reason... just sayin'

As far as Flicker Shads? My boat partner put it on me really bad a couple days on our last fall Canada trip using Flicker Shads. Still got the bruises to prove it.

I've always wondered the same thing Pooch. I'm not enough of a legal mind to know the ins and outs of patent laws and how that all works but some of the knockoffs are really close to the original manufacturer's products.
