True dat.
It'd be nice to think they'll react by offering them separately. Let's face it, it's bye-bye sales if they don't.

Ironically if Korda just sold the bloody things separately we wouldn't be having this discussion and there would have been no demand for another company to copy them

I think most people who think the chod sleeves should be sold seperately would agree with your post.

Totally agree, would reduce other costs on my food and beer than try and save a ££ on a cheap copy that hasnít had the worked put into it

It was exactly this that triggered Penning's baseball bat incident over the Krusha

For sure mate. I work in manufacturing so know very well how prototype costs can escalate. Not so much of a problem for genuine mass production but for the carp industry it could be a real killer as you said

Probably is yonny,
but as the figures were there I used them for no other purpose but for the example
Not many Times you actually hear the costs Involved

Poor example imo framey, that is small change for a company like Korda, they are a 20M/yr firm.
But I totally agree with your point - I can imagine some of plastic stuff costs a fortune to develop as you'll need completely new tools/moulds for each design change.

I watched the latest Korda videos and Iím sure hairy says hooks were £1000 a thousand hooks as a prototype And you have to buy 1000 at a time.
Every time you alter something thatís another grand for a thousand
Someone has to pay for it somewhere itís a lot of money to get back from a relatively small market

They also came up with the idea and paid for all the R&D costs. I'm not a Korda fanboy before anyone starts, but theres no doubt about it - they have invented some clever bits of kit over the years. The safety beads, the Krusha, and the heli drop off kit to name a few.

Developing these products costs a lot money and they have to recoup it - they also invest more than any other tackle firm on marketing - again this needs to be paid for. Theres a reason they're the most successful tackle company.

Yes their kit is a bit more expensive but its all relative. If you're sitting in a £700 bivvy complaining about the price of lead clips you need to have a long hard look in the mirror - if you stare long enough a vision of Danny Fairbrass will stare back at you and plant subliminal messages in your subconscious to always drop the lead.

True story.
