I would only have to lose one or two fish because of an inferior lure, and the whole bunch of them would go right in the trash bin. Life is too short to spend time fishing with crap products.
There are other lure companies that make lures with segmented sides to make them swim more realistically; the Charlie bait doesn't have any monopoly on that. Maybe it would pay to look around.
Give the lures to your worst enemy and wish him luck.
