Initially posted this in Beginner Forum but should have posted here. Looking for good quality Largemouth Bass replicas or Blanks pre paint. I like the Arp and Lake Country but the price of approx $200 makes it hard to push the replicas when the materials cost of a skin mount is less than $40. I'm a pure big bass hunter and never keep anything big and try to encourage customers to do the same, but hard to get the price competitive. Used to mount quite a few bass 20+ yrs ago when replicas were not available and I am retiring from my 9 to 5 job and getting back in. I know more labor is involved with skin mounts but would like to refuse to do skin mounts but still hard to make up the difference in price. I have no problem with a skin mount on any other fish, but not a big bass. The only cost competitive blank I have found is Archie Phillips for $60 but not a great selection and the quality is not quite there. I would think a good replica could be mass produced in the $100 range. Are the size selections improving and are the costs competitively coming down? Any suggestions?
