Night time blades

Recommended Posts

I've got a blade I'm trying to identify.

It's a colorado blade marked with C/S inside a diamond.

I don't believe they are still being made.

Does anyone remember these blades?

Where they were made, name of the company, ect...

Also any suggestions on favorite blades......

I can only answer the last question- I like Booyah’s Moontalker for night blades, and blades in general. Also Strike King. But I guess it’s because I’m a cheapskate. Some of the higher dollar blades are very well made.

A Shelly blade is more like the Ultra Vibe or Jewel. It's nothing like a France.

The France blade reminds me of the older Lazer blade.

i'm NOT positive, but i think the C/S blades were made in jefferson city.

i can't remember the man's name but seems like i was in their shop and saw the press they were made on.

i think they also had an unusual willow blade that was rounded on the end that attached to swivel.

seems they were all made with stainless steel so they didn't have a bright shiny finish but lasted forever.

i may be mixed up on this because that was almost 40 years ago but i know the willows were made there.

the cup on Shelley blade was designed by the man himself and is totally different from the original france.

90% of all US made blades 'used' to be made by Worth, Lakeland, or Hildebrandt.   they're probably outsourcing to china by now.

the excise tax has moved almost all large lure manufacturers offshore and put small ones out of business or forced them underground.

only fair way to collect excise on lures is at final sale.
