Lake Trout Repro Advice

    I've got someone interested in a lake trout reproduction.
    Looking at about a 37" fish.

    I found one at Lake Country replicas and also at Waters by Klaus. There is about a $100 u.s. price difference.
    Does anyone have experience with either supplier's product?
    It looked like Lake country has some sizes that are very rough with no inner mouth detail at all.

    Also waiting to hear back on shipping estimates into Canada.

    Any other suggestions for suppliers would be welcome.
    Just trying to figure out what to quote this customer.

    Waters by Klaus is usually pretty nice. Lake Country premier are better than their traditional line but still may not be great. The price difference is more than likely going to be worth it with Klaus in terms of prep work, details etc.

    Thanks very much for the advice.
    The Waters repros do look really good.

    I also found a supplier in BC
    (Envision 3D) that has a decent selection of replicas.

    Envision has some pretty nice blanks. He's in Canada so why not.

    The customer decided not to get it done, but the info is much appreciated. I will keep it all in mind.

    Thanks very much.
