I'm a BPS buyer from way back - 1980's. Heck, I remember when you could buy the stuff to make your own plastic worms. That's HARD CORE makin yer own wermz. I'm curious what gear, tackle and lures you go BPS and what you stick with name brand. I don't fish nearly enough to tell the difference between a mid-grade BPS rod'n'reel and a $500 whateveritis high-end setup. I'm just not that good of a fisherman. So much of their lures and tackle (hooks, weights, jigs, etc.,) are obvious copies of the name brands. What of these do you stick with name brands b/c BPS isn't up to snuff? Or do you find it all the same? I'm just curious and tapping the vast GT knowledgebase. There are probably guys here that have 60-90 fishing days a year here. I'll be happy with 30 this year.
