Buy hooks, THOMAS wholesale and retail (Kiev)
Hello colleagues, today I’ll talk to you in the first person, on choice of hooks, in particular, and the situation that has developed in the market of fishing gear in General. Also give a few simple decisions and call all the masters of Ukraine.
Cool bent? It is not so difficult as it might seem at first glance and I’m ready to show it on specific examples. If someone is unbearable to just buy the hooks, which will be discussed – here they sell retail at wholesale prices, though there are limitations on the number of in one hand.
Now let’s get back to the story and I’ll start with how my hands got hooks handmade THOMAS. So, in the beginning of 2015, my friend started a small homemade production of winter lures. Things slowly got better and the hobby began to resemble a small business.
The question was:
- the quality is better than the rest;
- just working the bait;
- price as accessible as possible for the end user.
We’re all used to that if you need a quality hook, buy Gamakatsu, VMC, or a couple brands that make the seemingly the same product, but play a game of “who more.” Moreover, they are expensive, so I buy them at wholesale prices if you don’t shop, turned out to be a daunting task. At this point my friend gets into the hands of one pack of hooks “THOMAS #10”.
It took us 2 weeks to 5 hands to find the contacts of the manufacturer and found that they are doing in Ukraine. In addition, their quality according to our estimates comparable with the same ovner or gamakatsu, and they cost us almost 2 times cheaper. Then it was interesting.
As our cooperation we learned that the story hooks THOMAS stretches back 80 years. These hooks have cleared from store shelves in the first place and if your a bait shop these hooks not only due to the fact that a small power production does not allow to cover all the shops.
The secret of the success of hooks, 80% of which are now exported, was tool steel, elongated and very sharp, sting, and also worked for years the technology of hardening. The price is about $1/pack (wholesale).
I love to look at things and the state of Affairs at different angles. The guys of course are great, but manual production technology imposes its own limitations on their business. Just imagine that the good engineers make the machines and all the necessary equipment and dozens of years of work by the principle:
- picked up a curved wall on the billet hook
- formed sting
- shaped eyelet
- sent for hardening ready-made party
Even if you work like a robot, each hook will be out for 15 seconds. The day I believe that a normal person without taking breaks for a smoke and other little things I can work about 5 hours, and it’s 1200 hooks (check on the calculator). Is a bit limited to scale the business, which despite this produces the first-class hooks.
Now, that’s the reason I’m starting to rant. I used these hooks to produce their lures, and in some unimaginable way around began to appear the craftsmen and fishermen who constantly asked where I found them and how you can buy them cheaply. Thanks to the hooks, Thomas I got the idea to assemble a Guild of masters bait in their territory, throwing intermediaries and unfounded cheating prices from intermediaries.
We all used to buy and sell things on OLX and other similar platforms, and now imagine the DISNEYLAND of FISHING GEAR at reasonable prices from manufacturers by 30-50% cheaper than the shops.
