Seems like when you go to their website you get redirected to Rapala lures.

You know Rapala owns Marcum (plus a slew of other fishing companies) right?  Just like Pure Fishing owns Berkley, Abu Garcia, Fenwick, Ugly Stick, Pflueger, Penn, Mitchell, Stren, etc.?

When you get to the Rapala.com website, just click on the Marcum tab. (its over on the right hand side of the ‘Brands’ toolbar.

I've tried to click every marcum banner there is on this site, top page, main page, even from favorites, etc, always send me back to rapala lures.  I know I don't have any malware or other crap on my desktop.  tried with the wifes tablet, same thing.
This is what I get: https://rapala.ca/

When I clicked on the vist marcum banner on this site, it does take me to rapala.com also, but in the menu tab on that page there is all kinds of marcum  items.

I'm beginning to think it's got something to do being north of the border.

Marcum is not owned by Rapala, they have a partnership with them. Marcum or Versa Electronics does all the manufacturing and repairs of the systems. Rapala does all the distribution and sales, hence why Marcum doesnt sell anything directly out of their facility in New Hope, MN. You learn something new everyday....

Regrading the banners going to Rapala, sounds like someone put Rapala's website into the hyperlink of the image when it should of went to Marcum's website, either way Marcums website will still get you to Rapala's website if you click on their "products" tab on their website.
