Our lures are manufactured in a state-of-the-art production facility by a highly-trained staff of professionals.
Even thought the current trend in the industry is to cut costs to produce cheaper products, we prefer to maintain the standards we have developed throughout the years. Swedish stainless steel, French VMC hooks, and high quality German paints and glues don't tend to be the cheapest on the market but this is what is chosen for our lure production.
Sometimes our management directs the production department to achieve a certain target price for a certain lure model. Instead of choosing methods that may reduce quality, we try to look for other ways. A recent example with 3-D eyes provides an example. Instead of shopping for "cheaper" eyes, we invested in new machines and technology to produce the eyes ourselves. By finding smarter ways to produce the same quality for less, we plan on keeping a step ahead of our competition. -- Give us a try today and you will see the difference.
