I am a rapala fisherman and have been noticing that many of my lures are not tuned out of the box. I have also noticed that the balsa wood seems to be of lower quality than in the past. Has anyone else experienced this? I have gone through over 300 dollars worth of cranks this spring mostly due to pike destroying them but have had many lures swimming cockeyed straight out of the box. I also have had shad raps break right down the middle and the balsa wood feels too soft inside.
