Hi Danny ! IF compared with rapala and yozuri they are as good as them. The hook quality on Halco is much better than the other two.. It mostly depends on which fish you are targeting . I have been sucessfully been fishing with Halco Thanks to Kingfish.But all depends what are you fishing for. [smilie=cool_goatee.gif]

@ madvento, marlin: Thanks guys

@ Kingfish: The Halco's that are available here too are half the price of Rapala and Yozuri. Although I have been told to check if they are originals (not quite sure how to ascertain that). I have purchased two Halco Laserpro 190's (Flouro Green and Flaming Hot). Will give them a shot and see how things work out. I also purchased a Storm Mag Thunderstick, just to add some variety to my kit. Gave it a try today, it moves really well on the retrieve. Let's see how much of a temptation it is for the predators :)

@ Mario: I'm primarily targeting MJ's, Barra and Breams (mostly in my backyard). Any others are also welcome to bite :)

Yes take care for the fakes!

I have been already in one shop in India where they offer fake and original Halco (The fake they sell cheaper).

How do you tell the fakes from an original? I just noticed that the box says 'Made in India'. Not to insinuate anything but could that be a fake? I also heard from a fellow angler that he has had more luck with fake halcos than the originals :P.

I guess most Western countries follow Keystone pricing. India on the other hand is a very price sensitive market so I'm guessing the retailers here are keeping their margins low but making a decent profit by reducing other costs. Selling fakes is one way I assume. I have uploaded pics of the Halco lure I just purchased. Let me know your thoughts.







Cheers

Danny

I have raised this matter with TimCarter (Marketing Manager) of Halco
in Australia.

He was fully aware of fakes being sold in India and advised that Halco are taking steps to sort out this situation.

Upon my asking him as to how one may tell if a lure is a genuine Halco,
he mentioned the following points:

1. Fakes are labelled as HALKO

2. The hooks are of an inferior quality (one would have to somehow test
them in order to know, I guess).

3. The split rings have 3 turns on the Halco lures (compared to normal 2 turns).

4. The paintwork is superior (again, one would have to have the original
to compare with the fakes!)

5. The plastic bib on the original is engraved with the depth at which the lure will run (i.e. +1.5m etc.), model # and HALCO.

6. The pricing is a giveaway.

P.S.I have just now seen Danny's picture of the Halco lure and packaging
which seems to open up a different angle to the matter and I will again talk to Tim Carter - will keep you posted.

P.P.S. Danny, can you pls see what it says on the bib of the lure you have in the picture?
