Lures From AliExpress

Recommended Posts

I’ll take a better picture when I use these, but here’s what arrived yesterday from China. A charter skipper put me onto them, as they are about the third of the price (and exactly the same, apparently) as a leading brand. His customers have caught loads of fish on them. 

Am I a bad boy for buying direct from China? They only took a week to get here...

These are the ones i bought - https://a.aliexpress.com/_dWG0SUg

I think Kenl buys his from aliexpress ,i have a packet from china every few days mostly from ebay sellers .

As long as you dont mind waiting and not after quality ( a few small pc boards i bought had obviously failed QC and been resoldered ) its fine but theres the realisation if it breaks theres no warranty unlike the big names

Not seen BAME minnows before !

It does seem that some items are better than others. That’s why it’s handy to know others who use the site, so we can put each other onto the better items. Pretty sure some of it is exactly the same as what you’d buy with a brand name on, whereas some other bits are crap copies.

There will be a lot of "over runs" i bet and flogged on for the real price not the name price ,and ofcourse if theres a market lots of copies hoping your thinking they are original copies and copies of the copies lol

I once bought a plastic chicken that had so many copies of copies it looked like an airbed ,all that could be seen from the original was a tiny beak in one corner with a plug in it ,or it may have been an airbed those chinese are inscrutable as is the word inscrutable

So he could watch it cross the Road to get his own opinion and not listen to others... 🐔

After which he will buy a plastic egg to get that one out of the way. 🐣

I thought it would be a potential air bed or am I not following this thread logically. All we need is Clod to post a bizarre, stupid link to something totally different like the rise in mushy pea price and things will look normal!
