    OK
    A few weeks ago, I attended the Missouri Show. While there I finally got to meet my internet friend Jimmy Lawrence of CO. During our conversation, I brought up I needed to order a 43" King Salmon replica and I told Jimmy where I was going to order it from. He then told me about a replica company he used called JG Replicas. He also told me a little about the blanks and how much he liked them. I got on there website (www.jgreplicas.com) located the perfect bland for the job. To my amazement, it looked good and was over $100 cheaper than the original blank I was about to order. Over the weekend, the blank arrive and today, I unboxed it. I was amazed at the quality and very impressed with the workmanship. I honestly believe it will be a snap to finish out and paint. So, I want to highly recommend JG Replicas and thank Jimmy Lawrence for turning me onto them.

    I knew you would like it.

    Jeff's a great guy with great customer service. I have used his biggest, to smallest kings. He lets me know what , when , where, etc. Anything I need to know.

    Not only is the quality outstanding, but the blanks are LIGHT. They are huge, and don't weigh hardly anything, but yet they are strong, and very well put together.

    All in all, im glad I turned you onto them. Hopefully Jeff appreciates it too! LOL .

    These were molded by UFD , Mr. David R Campbell himself, and Jeff now owns the molds, and does the job really nicely.

    Can't wait to see it when its done Kenneth.

    Jimmy!

    I too have used the blanks and they are top notch. Like Jimmy said, they are LIGHT, especially compared to some others on the market. Make sure you post the finished product Kenneth.
