The Vixen is most likely manufactured by R2S. As mentioned above by Triton Mike, they're one of the largest lure manufacturers in the world. They're also connected with one of the world's largest tungsten producers as well. R2S has manufactured lures for companies as well known as Shimano, Daiwa, Vagabond, Jackall, and Bass Pro Shops to name a few. I've seen and own various manufacturing samples they were contracted to make for the previously mentioned brands. OEMs are always making deals with companies who contract their work (ie, agreements over who owns the molds, the various markets they can sell the same lure to, etc etc etc...)

swimbaitwannabe, R2S is prolly one the BIGGEST if not the biggest lure mfg in the world. They make a TON of baits for many different very well known companies. Chances are good (not all) if your using a hard lure they mfg it.

Yes, many companies buy form the same supplier a company in china go to their website and you will recognize many lures from R2S, they get most of their line from one specific site. I won't mention it here, just tough to see lure companies talk about innovation and being on the cutting edge and they are just repackaging cheap lures that any company can buy. I know other companies do it, just miss originality.

alot of times its not copying at all...the company that produces the baits might have an agreement with company a for a certain size and color and another agreement with company b for the same bait but in a different size or color or exactly the same as they produce it they can sell it however they want and all we think of is that they are copying them. imitating happens all over in the tackle industry but more times than not both comapnies are just buying from the same supplier!!

I've caught fish on the Rover. It moves different than the Vixen and sounds different to. Try one of these from Jackall

Tom, you're thinking of the 230 Rover, i.e. the Punker

the Vixen was a better bait. The Rover has a more dense sound.. I prefer the vixen/repo man now.
