    Anyone else hear about this? Daiwa has dropped about 100 colors from the list of senko colors available. They also seem to be getting rid of the proline thin senkos. There are also a bunch of other models being discontinued. Will post when I know which ones. The pumpkin(orange) thin senko was one of my favorites. Not too happy about this....

    Not fun when favorite colors are not available. I used to use the thin pro senkos(6.75")and they were pretty cool worms. I have lots of them still in my garage etc., and if I had that pumpkin one(orange) you liked I would have gladly given you some.
    I am not sure if this is the color you were looking for:

    but they only have some in the 5" size at Fisherman's Warehouse Megastore. Heck....I would stock up anywhere you can find the color you like before it is gone forever even if it is the 5" thin one and not the 6.75"
    Yamamoto Pro Senko
    and they have some here:

    GSM LLC bought Yamamoto Baits in like November I think, not sure why/how Daiwa is using the name, I guess a licensing agreement.

    If Daiwa wanted to own the company under a separate entity, An LLC would be the best way to do it. That way, they can assume no liability to the their parent company.

    GSM LLC is owned by a capital investment firm and Daiwa is owned by Globeride INC which is a Japanese company, they used to be called Daiwa Seiko INC. I think licensing is how Daiwa is attached to Yamamoto baits now. I could be wrong though.

    Hmm. The GSM website has a Yamamoto page, and, sure enough, it seems to only offer a few colors, as opposed to the ten thousand and seven offered by Yamamoto. Doesn't appear Daiwa is involved at all.

    Daiwa has a co-marketing agreement with Yamamoto for a few branded baits. They don’t own Yamamoto.
