Daiwa lures

Post by fishaholiclures » Thu Oct 02, 2008 8:26 pm

Hi Guys,
Here is my ever increasing collection of Daiwa lures introduced to Aust in the 1970's, that would make it one of the "ORIGINAL" Japanese lures and you can see some influences from Europe and the US in various models.

Mully lol
AND Arbogast AND Rebel AND Abu AND Helin AND Mirrolure.
Back then the Japenese where THE copy cat specialists. I have a bunch of Dickson Lures that loook the same as some of the Daiwa's and then theres a bunch of stuff I have sold in the states under various 'HOUSE' brands like Herters, Durapak, Winfield that came out of the same factories in Japan. Now days its the Chinese and Koreans copying the Japanese lures.....the world goes round and round lol

Mully, n
ot that anyone heard of, Heddon especially were pretty rampant if they thought their patents had been breached, but there are enough variations of the shape to get past that stuff, only has to be 10% different to be classed "NOT A BREACH". There were plenty of US made similar shapes as well and it has been suggested that Heddon actually copied the 'plastic' RIVER RUNT shape from another manufacturer lol

As for the the others well Rebel started with copies of Abu's, Everyone copied Helins Flatfish sometime, Mirrolure were originally designed by a friend of the Le Master Family. At least Fred Arbogast was at least original with his designs.
