Re: How come other manufacturers don’s use as much salt as Yamamoto

I found this article saying that the Gene Larew patent expired and think the article is from 2013, so that answers a couple of my questions. I’m assuming Yamamoto now has the patent since that article shared earlier in this thread said he had the patent.

Re: How come other manufacturers don’s use as much salt as Yamamoto

I wonder why Larew doesn’t have a salt senko then. Does Larew even have any salt impregnated baits besides the old school craw? I also wonder why no big manufacturers use the silica? Maybe the patent would get them anyways.

Re: How come other manufacturers don’s use as much salt as Yamamoto

I guess it’s valid to point out that different manufacturers want alternatives instead of make an identical copy and you guys are right, it does answer part of my question. I just don’t feel like it’s the full answer. Maybe its the answer to why yum doesn’t use salt. I would think there are ways aro...

Re: How come other manufacturers don’s use as much salt as Yamamoto

I throw senkos weightless wacky hooked and dingers dont work for me wacky style without a weighted hook, which gives it a different action. I catch lots of fish on one senko with an o-ring. You didn’t really address any of the questions in my post. I know they tear up quicker, pretty sure everyone ...

How come other manufacturers don’s use as much salt as Yamamoto

The main thing that sets Yamamoto apart from the imitators, imo, is their salt content. Is salt that expensive? Does it cause issues when mass producing plastics? Senkos knockoffs are made by just about all their competitors in the soft plastic market, yet I haven’t found any other senko style plast...

Butyrate crankbait info

I’m wondering what current and discontinued cranks are/were made of butyrate? Awhile back I read somewhere that the old warts were made of butyrate and they stopped using it because it caused cancer, but after doing a search this evening I found there are at least a few cranks still using it - Norma...

Rapala’s terrible craw patterns

What’s up with their craw patterns? Does anyone like them? They look like they were designed by a cartoonist.

Any differences between vintage Rat-L-Traps and newer ones?

I had bought some older traps on eBay and did really well with them this fall. The only reason I bought older ones was because they were cheaper. I lost all of them and am looking to replace them. Are there any differences between the vintage ones and the newer ones? Same plastic, mold, weight, and ...

Re: Moving to Texas

I would pick Dallas because you’re close to a lot of really good lakes like Ray Roberts, Texoma, and Lake Fork. I lived in Denton and Denison growing up and so I visited both cities a lot. I haven’t been to either in a long time, but my impression is that Dallas would be a way better place to live i...

Re: Panoptix PS22 - has anyone used Panoptix?

Paul Mueller’s instagram has been the most informative. He’s answered some of the comments I’ve left him, but most of his content is made while ice fishing and perch fishing.

Re: Panoptix PS22 - has anyone used Panoptix?

I’ve read reviews and watched every YouTube video and haven’t got the answers I am looking for. TW had 10% off but the transducer was on backorder which conflicted with the $200 rebate requirements. I was looking to get it for $700. Still considering getting one before the rebate is expired.
