Mr. Wiggly

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 
After reading all the good stuff about Mr. Wiggly I thought I would order a 1 oz for schoolies and large mouth bass, then I saw the price with shipping is almost $26.00...I can't imagine a one ounce plug being that valuable...any opinionss from users?????

I know that it seems like prices for wooden plugs are getting out of hand, but when you stop and think about it, what would you have to charge for a hand made plug that would still make you a profit? I know that the Mr. Wiggly's are made overseas, but they are still carved by hand.That kind of hand labor costs $$$$. Imagine what you'd be paying if that same lure were made here in the USA? I don't think Tony Stetzko or any of the other lure makers like HABS or Saltybugger are trying to rip anybody off. If they could put their products in your hands for less money, and still make a profit, I think they'd do it. Remember that these guys love to fish themselves, and pricing things too high keeps people out of the sport that they love. If you ever see a Valentine plug out there, trust me, I've put more than $26 worth of my time into it.

It's a $19.99 dollar plug, the shipping is the same if you order 1 or 10...but if you order 10 then they are only $20.59 each

Considering that many folks pay $20 for a needlefish, yes, Mr. Wiggly is easily worth $20 - it's a unique lure that will catch fish other plugs won't. It's jointed, wired through with a lexan lip - a whole lot more to it's manufacture than a needlefish

I am not talking 'rip off" I am asking about value. Is Mr. Wiggly such a good fish catcher that is is worth that much?

Valentine,
If I'm not mistaken Tony Stetzko makes the Mr. Wiggly and hand carves them here in Massachusetts not over seas. Also, they are well worth the money. Trust me they catch.

Keeperreaper, I believe the very first ones were carved here, but that was before they were being offered for sale. All the Mr. Wiggly lures that have been offered to the public recently are made overseas

Mr. Wiggly rocks, probably one of the best broken backs ever made by one of the best artists and people ever made - Tony.
