Authentic Kadaitichas

Post by lkhandyman » Mon Jun 22, 2009 4:26 pm

Just wondering on what peoples thoughts where on this Kadaiticha that went on Ebay last week. I personaly did not bid as I had doubts to it athenticity, and given the low price I think other may have as well.

The clip looks wrong, bib angle looks wrong as do the eyes. It did not mention it was a Newells in the deiscription but calling it a Kadaitcha to me means it is one of Peters.

What do you guys think is this a rip off of Peters????

Definately not one of Peter's.The seller has been making his own lures and selling them.

I was a bit suss of that one as well, not only the points mentioned, but the shape of the bib, size and placement of the holes in bib and the head profile, also the tail shape and profile. I think most lookers agreed and that was reflected in the low final price compared to the 'REAL DEAL'

That particular person had been offering copies of stuff like a stumpjumper, noted as such in their desscription however on this occassion no mention of it being a copy despite it clearly being so.

I didn't query it, but kept an eye on it I think in hindsight a few polite questions might have been in order as with recent increases in interest more people are looking.

I didn't do it but spoke to someone who was keeping an eye on it with a mind to raising an objection if the price got too high.

i guess in the first instance we need to ask the questions earlier because if people get ripped off it damages the idea of lures being worthy collectibles.

We will all need to be careful what we say about a lures authenticity, we could end up in trouble.
BUT in saying that I heard a wisper that some unfinnished lures of a wellknown lure maker
were found in his shed after his passing and have been "finnished" and offered for sale as originals.


If you are willing to pay big money,then look long and hard at the item.

Thanks for the response guys, thats what I thought.

Brad I don't think $133.50 is a low price for a fake, copied lure. The Replica Stumpjumper this guy sold earlier this month which he siad in the description was a replica sold for $20, which I think is a fair price for it, even though I don't agree with the fact he has copied it in the first place. It might be a low price compared to the real thing but is still high for what it is.

Funny how he sold a replica timber stumpjumper that he made, and then a couple of weeks latter has a Kad that he picked up at a garage sale, made out of the same timber, same ally bib??? Suss?? how silly dose this guy think people are, well I guess he fooled someone for them to pay $133.50 for a fake copy.

Attached for peoples interest is the Replica Stumpie this guy sold on the 6.6.09.

This kind of blatant rip off really gives me the sh#ts.

Mully is it possible to list this guys ebay seller name or is that going to get me in trouble???
