My brother is a rep for these and a largemouth bass guide in South Florida.  He swears by them.  But then again, he is paid to do so  :D

     Looks to me only the lower end to mid range are 2 for 1.   The higher end maybe 1.5 for 1.

... at the Toronto Fishing Show today.

Just got back from Angling Outfitters and Josh said all models will be 2 for 1 at the show. The one I looked at was wild wild orange retails at $150 each. Think I'm going to pick a couple up next week. There is models priced from $150 -$400 each

      They are here at the Fishing show.   168 retail on for 80 each or 130 for 2. 

Carrot stick had major breakage issues some years ago that almost put them out of business and it seems they are judging by the deals are buying back business.

They were 2 for $99 USD at the fishing show in Novi last month.  They looked decent, felt well made.  I have no real world experience with them though.  There were too many other good deals on brands with a better following.

They were the big new thing when they were new 5 or 6 years ago, or even longer?  They were all the rage.  Haven't heard much about them over the last few years.
