Why are these kits so cheap?

With some exceptions, most of these are made overseas and are “brand name” lures where you are paying for all marketing and sponsorship of fishing guides (and customer service) that the brands undertake.

Are they qood quality?

shutterstock 23311699 scaled

For the most part, yes. The hooks and other components won’t be as durable as the big brand names who’ve got more at stake, but they will get you going in bass fishing as a beginner or intermediate angler and let you do a lot more fishing for a given budget.

What colors do bass like?

This great article explains the technical reasons why bass like certain colours – their eyes are tuned to respond to two colours (red and green). Essentially for the fisherman, it can be boiled down into having lures in four different color groups: bright (white and chartreuse), green, red and dark (blue, brown, black).
