Van-stall, Shimano, Daiwa you name it all have manufacturing base in China.

Depends from whom you buy. Bought 2 penn reels from Tackledirect recently. Both Made in China.

On Fleabay the sellers reputation is most important.

I trust, what you mean when you say Chinese Lures, is lures made and sold under a Chinese Brand. 70% of these lures for some reason do not work as well as they should. The balance is somehow not right and you have to pay a lot of attention to work them, positioning your rod tip is very important. I guess that there is no quality control procedures or tests in the manufacturing process of these lures, and so the difference I presume, when you buy a Chinese manufactured lure that is of a reputed brand.

The Lip breaks off.
The lure can split in half vertically.
The quality of the split rings and hooks in most of them are very shoddy.
The colour peels of very fast on a lot of them.
A lot of them tend to surface on retrieve.

I will give you a good example, I was fishing with a Red-White Lure that was an identical copy of an Alle Magnet, to the naked eye there the lure was almost perfect upto the action in the water as well and I could see no difference. However I was not getting hit, the moment I switched to a genuine Alle Magnet, I caught 4 fish within the span of 20 minutes and then lost the lure to the 5th fish. Switched to another RedWite copy, caught nothing, switched back to an original caught some more. It was all in the same area.

A same lure (alle copy) gold colour that day caught fish though.

Hi...

Just to conclude this topic, I have been using cheap Chinese lures for some time and can say that they are good beginner lures. I lost a few to the snags, but didn't mind as they were cheap. I learnt a lot about casting and retrieving with these lures. below are my observations.

1. Minnow Type Lures: I found these to be the best among the lot. The swimming action is decent and they cast well. The build quality is directly proportional to the amount you pay. The split rings and hooks might fail with bigger catches, but I managed to land 1-1.5Kg MJs without any failure. I found the Red Head to be the best color. Saw some GT chasing this lure but it didn't strike

2. Jointed Minnow Type Lures: Their action looks good in water and they swim well. But the problem here is in the casting. The hooks get entangled with the line most of the time, thus wasting your cast. So these lures were left in the box most of the time.

3. Fat Crank Baits: These work fine. Only problem was when you reel them in fast, they tend to surface or spin. They worked well on slow retrieve and have caught a fish.


I have written the above based only on my personal experience. Results may vary with different lures/manufactures/etc.
