10 Reasons You Should Be Using Custom Bass Tackle

10 Reasons You Should Be Using Custom Bass Tackle

Terry Thornton |

Choosing and fishing bass tackle from independent manufacturers can offer several advantages, providing anglers with unique and specialized options. We came up with 10 reasons for buying bass tackle from independent manufacturers:

  1. Innovation: Independent manufacturers often strive for innovation and creativity. They may introduce new materials, designs, or technologies that aren't as quickly adopted by larger, mass-producing companies. We are constantly on the lookout for innovative ideas, styles, and even colors. We ask that any manufacturers out there that have something they would like to share with the anglers of the world to reach out to us.

  2. Attention to Detail: Independent manufacturers typically pay meticulous attention to detail in their products. With smaller production runs, there's often a greater focus on quality control, resulting in well-crafted and reliable tackle.

  3. Dedication to Supporting the Sport: Independent manufacturers often have a deep-rooted dedication to the sport of bass fishing Their passion for the sport motivates them to contribute to its growth and development. This dedication may manifest in sponsorships for local fishing events, support for conservation efforts, or the creation of community initiatives that aim to introduce more people to the joys of bass fishing. By choosing tackle from these manufacturers, you become part of a community that is genuinely invested in the well-being and future of bass fishing as a sport.

  4. Unique Designs: Independent manufacturers often produce unique and distinctive designs that set their tackle apart from mass-produced options. This uniqueness can be appealing for anglers looking for something different on the water. In fact, it can be the one thing that helps you boat fish when nobody else can.

  5. Specialized Expertise: Independent manufacturers may specialize in specific types of tackle or fishing techniques. This specialized expertise can result in products that are finely tuned for certain conditions or applications. Our brand partners are anglers too. Decisions about what makes a good bait and what doesn't are made on the water, not in the boardroom.

  6. Supporting Small Businesses: Choosing tackle from US based independent manufacturers supports small businesses and individuals passionate about fishing. This can contribute to the growth of the fishing community, the development of niche products, and the strength of our country.

  7. Direct Communication: With independent manufacturers, Vantage Tackle will always have direct communication with the people behind the products, and not go through distributors that house thousands of identical mass produced items from the major manufacturers that fills most shelves. This can lead to a more personalized shopping experience and allow you to get insights into the design and functionality of the tackle. Most importantly, it allows you to show your fish something different!

  8. Flexibility in Production: Independent manufacturers are often more flexible in adapting to customer feedback and changing market demands. This agility can result in quicker updates and improvements to their products. 

  9. Ethical and Sustainable Practices: Independent manufacturers may be more inclined to prioritize ethical and sustainable practices in their production processes. This can be appealing to environmentally conscious anglers. 

  10. Passion for the Craft: Many independent manufacturers are driven by a genuine passion for fishing and tackle craftsmanship. This passion often translates into a higher level of dedication and care in creating quality products. Remember the Vantage Tackle tagline: Custom Craftsmanship, Unmatched Results!

Opting for tackle from these manufacturers, not only broadens your possibilities on the water but also contributes to the advancement of our sport, and the small businesses that support it. Shop here and you can explore the advantages that come from quality, innovation, and passion.
