#394, "RE: Osprey paint job"
In response to In response to 12


  

          

Here's the Osprey Home page

www.ospreylure.com

And thankyou for explaining how you were posting. It was a mistake on my part that allowed it and since it's fixed now you'll have to log in to reply to me. Maybe you can sign up a bogus email account to get in this time? Sorry if you think I am a control freak, I try to moderate the forums in a way that makes them a place where the 98% wants to post. If I lose the 2% that want to get a comment in without leaving an email, that's just the way it goes.

But hey, I'm feeling in the mood so let's talk some. I am sensing by your post that you think it's not appropriate for me to point out products that are being OEM'd. I don't know if you have a problem with that idea in general or if it's a specific deal with Osprey and/or Rago baits.

In general, some OEM agreements are confidential between the companies and others are not. Cabelas doesn't advertise who manufactures their reels for example and it may be a confidential agreement. The Cabelas rod holders I bought last month said Cabelas on the side but said Scotty on the knob. I guess that must not be confidential since Cabelas decided not to pay the increased cost to have Scotty mold a new knob. I noticed on the other hand that the new Rick Clunn crankbait is made by Lucky Craft and that was clearly advertised in the Bass Pro catalog. That's a good move by them because they leverage the strong branding that Lucky Craft has already established in the fishing market.

In my opinion it would be in Osprey's interest to advertise that Jerry is painting their baits since Jerry has a great reputation as a lure painter. To think people wouldn't figure it out anyway is absurd because anyone who's seen the original generic trout would know that the paint job on the Osprey hardbait is identical. It would be smarter for Osprey to adverise that Jerry is painting the lures than to have people think they were knocking off the paint job. Those are my thoughts anyway.

Along this same topic, I'm hoping that when the Live Trout Softbaits become available again (presumably mfgr'd by Osprey), that they are just as good as the ones Jerry sent me a year ago. Those baits stick pigs and when it comes to what lures I use, I don't consider personal relationships - I USE WHAT WORKS. Too bad for the fish huh!
