    im looking for a northern pike replica in the 32”-35” range. Anyone have one with good scale detail? Thought I would check here prior to ordering for LCR.
    Thanks

    I've had good luck with Starfish although I also use LCR. Be prepared to get gouged on shipping if you use UPS or FedEx. Any boxes with any length to them and the really hose you. (The shippers).

    Got two northern replicas the other day and the total was $730.00!

    There's several smaller pike sizes in the Ron Reynolds/Realfish collection that McKenzie has but it's not advertised. And actually they have a Select Series 35 inch pike that I'll bet is really nice. The Select Series blanks were my favs back then. I can't recall for certain but they may have been the first with the look thru gills (or they're like the 3D Arps, can't remember. Either way top notch blanks molded from fish, not mounts like some blanks out there). There's only about a dozen LM Bass and 3 pike in the Select Series. Relatively new just before they sold to McKenzie. So, I'm betting very few pulls. You'll have to call or email them for a listing. It's listed under Repro/SS/Northern Pike, 35x17 incher...

    Rough water. If you want to try the R. Reynolds blank the 35x17 is RRNP21, (S CRV) ALSO A 35X16 C CRV RRNP3. You must have got someone new, they still sell them.

    I just got a 36" Starfish Pike and the shipping/handling cost was $59, which I actually thought was fairly high. They must have made a billing mistake with you. I just had a client get a $350 shipping quote form the UPS store for a deer skull/antlers. UPS made a mistake on that quote and it was corrected to $50. By the way, the Starfish pike I got was of pretty good quality.
