At least with Rapala he can be honest because they are one of the best. Better than having to tout overpriced lures with onboard lazer pointers! :lol:

Hope that might end up well on him. What hook company sponsored Mike Iaconelli before VMC?

Ike, Ish and Peter T and a few other guys signed with Youvella when they first came out. Unfortunately that didn't last long. Youvella I believe went belly up.

As for VMC they are probably the biggest OEM hook company. Most people aren't aware of how much they distribute to other contries. Especially Japan.

As for Rapala they are a great compay and make great product. They take care of their pro staff and are on top of things. So that is a good thing for Ike.

Can someone explain, which league is more prestigious, has more money, has better pro's, and would be considered as NHL,NFL, etc. - FLW outdoor or B.A.S.S.?
I know people in FLW make kinda decent money, winner gets 100K per tournament, but they don't have names like KVD or Iaconelli.
