    I'd like some opinions here! What is the best (most accurate) fish replicas on the market? I heard good and bad about most of them out there. I'd like to know your thoughts and reasons why. Any help would be appreciated. Also, need a competition https://speedtest.vet/ https://vidmate.bid/ https://wordtopdf.ltd/ quality CM Largemouth Bass replica 21.5" - suggestions? Thanks in advance!

    It's possible to put the finishing touches on the worse replicas that may produce great competition results but it takes time to do this.
    I usually add a bunch of detail to fish heads, fins, etc.
    Obviously large scaled fish species that show little scale detail will likely be next to impossible to deliver decent results. You generally get what you pay for in quality with replicas. If you are super concerned about it I would personally call and talk to several replica companies that are reknown for producing the best quality replicas. They likely know which particular replicas have the best detail. Just as important as starting off with a great replica is having the ability and time to paint competition worthy work!

    Dave Campbells, Ken Bauman, jimmy has some nice LMBs but i know hes not selling any blanks at the moment.
    As said your still going to have to make adjustments On any of them. Some more then others. Id recomend finding one that already has the center line fins. Unless your able to fix possible anatomical issues You may run into.
