    Their web site didn't impress me much ,the fish looked plastic but maybe thats why nobody has heard of them.A good paint job might make one look good though but I know I couldn't.Just my opinion.KD

    I've used them. By your standards Gary, they are probably just OK. I was satisfied with them. If you are famiiliar with McGinnity blanks, they are of similar quality...eh? Not as detailed as a Ron Reynolds replica but much better than one from Archie Phillips. Priming, which I routinely do anyway, was necessary beause the casting material was translucent. It has been 7 or 8 years since I bought any from Pete and his methods/materials might very well have changed by now. He has the biggest walleye that is commercially available if anyone is interested.

    I have used several of them over the years for fish I could not get elsewere. The earlier post summed it up. Much like Archies, or the old Bob Davis blanks. Most of McGinnities, especially the saltwater are better than I have received from Nicely.
