I don't feel too bad about my Banjo Minnow after reading the post from Rockymtn.C&R but I still would not brag about it, no offense to Babe. To be fair though I do have had some Cabela products over the years and still do and have been pleased. Another worthless product I have is the "Bite" sandals. Tried once in the water and way too much slippage and I could not get them tight enough for what they were designed for, still can not beat the boot. They do however make a decent walk around sandal on dry land or on the beach so not all was lost.
