Great to see you're keeping it in line with your original stuff - that's what anniversaries are about. IMO your paint work is part of what makes your lures yours.

This is all very exciting clapclap clapclap

Sorry Mully....I only go on the site when im at work ( usually between 4.30 am & 5 pm ) ....when I get home , I dont usually use the computer.

How much will the box sets be ???? ....to be honest , I dont really know yet . The costs of the cases , certificate , Polycarb lids , etc...etc... is yet to be costed , so I really dont know. There are now going to be 11 lures in each set ...and that 11th lure is going to be a surprise ( No detail until the project is finished ). What i can tell you is that each anniversary box set will be around $1000 - $1200 .
I admit that its alot of money , but for 11 lures & the fact that there is only ever going to be 30 of them , i dont think it is unreasonable. To come up with that figure , i have spoken to a few collectors .....and interested people on this site , and none of them have bauked at that price.

No-body that has expressed interest in the sets is obligated in anyway at all........when they are finished , I will offer them up at a set price , and only then will they be locked in as the owner of a set. I would like to thank all those again who have showed interest in them , and can tell you that PM's through the site ....& private emails to me have the number of people wanting a set at 47 names. This may change when they see the price , but there are only 20 available for selling , therefore I think they will be snapped up pretty quickly. ( 6 buyers have already committed ....knowing that the price will as ive just stated )

Jumping the gun a bit , as it will be month's away before they will be ready.....but your question on price is fair and reasonable Mully thanks Rob
