Editor's Note: I've always been a fan of the Terminator product line, but in light of the Oklahoma job eliminations, I may find myself hard-pressed to support the brand in the future. If it's cheaper to make them in Mexico, are they going to lower the price?

  1. Sad That the american fisherman has to buy his lures from overseas / mexico. This in not the first fishing industry co. to do this and yes the quality will suffer. It's time we all take a stand and buy US made products and support not only the home team but the american way of life.
