So does a design patent only apply to a specific design. IE. jointed lexan billed hard plastic rodent with rubber tail and profile of rago's rat?

If not, I am pretty sure the heddon meadow mouse has been around for many years before rago's stuff.

Don't see why a quality bait maker such as Rago needs to patent his stuff when no one else can do what he does anyway. Not to mention that there are like 12 different rat baits out there now.

I believe it stands for original.

As for why Rago would patent his inventions? Well, after his Generic 3D, and Flat back Generic soft bait's were counterfeited, thousands were sold in Japan,(he never seen a single penny of those sales), then his Generic hard bait was counterfeited and also sold over seas again with out seeing a single penny. Shortly after his 8 inch baby tool was copied and injected molded by a large company. I think the guy's name was Ill Stealandsell?? Does that answer your question as to WHY??
Rago is not a school teacher or a fire fighter, he invents and builds baits for a living. His company supports three family's currently and in this economy he needs all the protection he can get. These days there is hardly any ORIGINALITY, INTEGRITY, or LOYALTY............everyone is coping everyone else.
I congratulate Jeremy Anderson, Ken Huddleston and again Jerry Rago on their Patents and I hope that the days of originality and creativity come back again.

Peace, Rafael

So I'm jelous and envious? And crying? Ok if you say so.

I look at things with an opened mind and from a different perspective. I am a swimbait consumer and craft my own lures for my own personal use.

Your always hatting on the BBZ. Yeah it is obvious it is a tool clone but it is also a lure for entry level swim baiters. This means more people are getting into swim baiting and more people will eventually want to step up to the "real deal" (oh wait that's a different company).

You see the more people that are addicted to swim baiting, means the more customers from top to bottom of the industry. This is also how we as a fishing community ensure that fishing is here to stay (by teaching more new more people how to fish and growing our community).

Your in a tough position, trying to sell baits for your bosses yet wanting it to still be the 1990's when nobody else was throwing them.

Peace and good fishing
Mike
