Hi Pete,
Happy New Year. Knowing you have a wealth of knowledge wanted to ask this question to you and the group. I'm looking to purchase silicone skirts in bulk. Skirts for fluke jigs primarily. I have been buying skirt packs (10x to a pack) for between $1.90- $2.50 a pack.

Doing some searching I'm seeing vendors on Alibaba that are selling the same exact skirts for $.05-.08 each, based on a 100 ct min. I have no experience buying anything from Alibaba express and wondering if you or anyone else has experience buying from these sources? Or do you know of any other sources that sell in bulk?

Thank you
SP

I too suggest you avoid Alibaba. I think pequa1 is using the same source I do in his last link to Ebay.

Look good, but close to twice the price of the link that I provided to E-pray. The price on my link was 38 cents per skirt (for the 100 pc lot), this new one is between 54 and 60 cents per - at what, 5 pcs per lot? Even the 100pc lot looks to be $54.

Of course if you just need just a few pieces and so don't want to go for a 100pc order, then why not? 54 cents per won't break anyone's bank. But at the rate I seem to lose them, 100 pcs only lasts a couple of seasons or so. Therefore for me, it makes sense to go for the lesser-cost alternative.
