Not all of them are though. The ones in your link would be massive on a hook

hook beads?

You do know hook beads are repurposed and recoloured ear ring backs don't you?

Something else I twigged with no carp tax.
My other alternative is 2 layers of small shrink tube.
With the beads I used to use a dab of clear nail varnish to stop it moving, or shrink tube, which defeated the object of a bead anyway.

The ESP ones do seem the best but still have to double them up to stop them slipping on a size 4 Mugga when fishing over 60 yards.

If only someone could come up with a proper distance bead that doesn't move

What happened with Richard Madeley? did your letter to GMTV get ignored? sorry just joking.

Ive used a variety of hook beads and for those that are slipping just use a larger hook size, or use the esp ones, although not really beads they dont move much like other beads.

Look forward to seeing the OMC beads

Agree with that Belch 100%.

I'm not a "hater" I don't hate anyone, it's not healthy!

I don't like Hamidi as a person for reasons already mentioned. I don't like him as a presenter on TV just as I don't like Richard Madeley on GMTV, I think they are both incredibly annoying and crap.

With regards to his company @doing_a_brew of course I am going to be interested in the products he is producing, they are aimed at the Carp fishing hobby I love, if he did bring out something new and innovative I would definitely consider purchasing an OMC product but at the moment there is nothing that remotely interests me from his very small range of re-hashed stuff!

Agree with the sentiment of this but I think even the die hard AH 'haters' were secretly hoping for the second coming in terms of innovation from someone who's quite clearly one of carp fishing's few actual winners . . .

Exactly. I just donít get the emotional responses and hatred towards AH on here, itís sad to the point of hilarity that so many people are triggered by it.

Who cares if someone starts a company selling items youíre not interested in? Wouldnít the sensible thing just be to not waste your energy worrying about it and not even give it a second thought? I canít think of a single reason why youíd be bothered other than jealousy.

I was just going to type the same thing

If it solves the problem (and it can be a problem 120+) of using 2 beads or glue surely a new bead would be a good thing?!

Or just s*** on the idea before itís even released because you would never cast further than 100 yards and donít need it

Yup, could use two beads or dab with glue. Or.... use a longer bead that eliminates the need for either.
Just hope it works.

Typical carp forum response

I couldn't give a **** what the company is called or if its run by some guy who annoys me onscreen. If that bloody hook bead stays true at 150 with foam it's a touch. I see no other **** "innovated" a slightly longer hook bead in the several years they've been available. The simple ideas are the best imo.

To be honest it's a crap name with mediocre products, it's the fact that he has his name to them means he'll see a few. Hes trying to make out the products are innovative, when in reality its either a plastic box, some red kickers, or a bloody hook bead.

I don't see any poor items thus far tbh.
Overpriced fashion victim clothing yes, but same for all tackle firms.
That box thing is not my bag but it'll serve a purpose for some.
If that new distance hook bead works it'll be fooking great.
The wire bags are class.
The ready tied stuff again isn't my bag but someone will use them 100%.
Other than the standard overpriced clothing it all serves a purpose and with covid slowing launch down there will be plenty more to come I'd expect.

The big establish companies are struggling for new ideas hence the poor items omc have launched canít see it being a good idea people compare Nash fox Korda ect they started from nothing it was a different time


carp fishing was young it was new they had all the ideas in front of them over the years a lot of things have already been done the only way I can see it working if they come up with something special that only they sell but selling rig safes hats and hoodies I canít see it paying off

Not much "innovation" left in the Carp fishing industry, rinse, copy & repeat....plus buy up smaller outfits, (rig safe thing and Rat Bag company) then add a bit of carp tax and release it under your own banner.

Nothing at all to convince me that OMC will be any more successful than TFG.....lead by a "TV Star" bringing out nothing new whatsoever....

I personally think the new boss is being very prudent with how much cash he's actually willing to risk / invest in products . . .drip feed the market - get a response - ditch it or make more. Low risk strategy. The only current real product 'lines' are the paint splat apparel . . .was expecting more innovation

To be honest I once asked him a genuine question on Twitter years ago and he responded with an unnecessary and sarcastic answer.... never liked him since then!

As for doing a Nash podcast of course he is entitled to do it but t use an analogy I bet he would kiss the badge of each club he played for!

Good luck to him but I won't be lining his pockets.....but I doubt he would lose any sleep over that anyway...

So he canít do a podcast with Nash because he used to work for Korda?! I wouldnít look through the list of past guests then, you will get very cross.

I donít suppose you listened to it? He mentions being trolled for using fox gear since leaving Korda. Apparently he was mates with the guys who now do product development at Fox when he fished Redesmere.

I couldnít give a monkeys what kit anyone uses, he just seems like an ok guy trying to make his way on his own.

Whatís caused such strong emotions towards him from you?

The fact that Hamidi has done a Nash podcast and is happily punting Fox bivvies and alarms shows just how much he has sold out and just how fickle he is.....can't stand the bloke and would not lower myself to buy any of his overpriced re-badged gear.

And Ted Baker quality my arse, it is still mass-produced chinese crap.

While ever there are idiots in fishing people will milk them, itís that simple

I donít think the guy behind Ted Baker will give a flying ****. My mate used to buy from him when he started out and used to go round shops in his van, respect to the fella, made a mint but he used to sell quality stuff that nobody else was wearing at the time. Another marketing ploy to catch idiots

in my eyes the ted baker link adds no credibility (possibly the opposite), but does have years and years of contacts and relationships that will reduce the cost, and increase the speed Ali can get garments on the market. Probably worth his weight in truffles just for that reason

It should also mean that the clothing is manufactured exclusively to a set specification rather than a Fruit of the Loom hoody with a print on.

Time will tell I guess.

I agree Ali can be a bit of a pain on TV, but he always comes across well when being interviewed. The recent Nash podcast is a good example.

In theory you would hope the quality control is in place for the clothing range and the materials used ect are more inline with the outdoor clothing companies. Let's face it people pay stupid money for so called fashion items that are all made in said sweat shops

I dont understand this theory, when were ted Baker leaders in the outdoor clothing market...maybe I'm wrong but didn't they do shirts,t-shirts handbags dresses and shoes?
maybe he has contacts to foreign sweatshops and cheap labour to maximise profits, maybe the the clothing is good...just don't understand the ted Baker connection....no dig at you personally mate, I've heard the ted Baker thing banded round lots

People will pay £60 for a hoody and £30 for T-shirt if the quality is there. I donít see those prices as that crazy.

This is an age where people queue up to spend £1000 on a glorified umbrella and £600 on a set of alarms.

I just took a look at their website just out of curiosity (would have no intention of spending my money on their products)

For a company thats just starting off they have pretty much out priced themselves on most clothing products than the other big named firmsÖ £56.99 for a hoody, £26.99 for a t-shirt 🤷‍♂️

I think he helped with the media side of it,getting fishing onto Sky then mainstream TV.I honestly think omc will be successful and become a big player in the market,the packaging they are using is a massive step in the right direction

Without doubt covid has played a huge part in it all. But even so it's been quite a **** show from Ali etc.with this. I just expected better from the man who many claim is the reason for Korda getting to where it is now.

I think covid has slowed the whole job down mate. I agree the company launch has been all over the place but knowing what most anglers are like it's probably done OMC a favour with the mass market waiting with bated breath for the next wonder product

Of course mate. I'd have thought they would have been able to bring out something of their own by now though. Or they should probably have done a bit more of that before launching the company like they did,with just a plastic rig box monstrosity and some overpriced hats to offer

In regards to this product I think that is is a quality product. I've had the Carp Couture version (I did not realise that they ripped it off until I read this thread) having gone through so many rubber or mesh versions over the years and it has been brilliant. Had it for at least 5 years now and still going strong, which for c.£20 is money well spent in. I hope the new badge doesn't add a wedge onto the asking price (though I expect it will)

I agree Ian, but we need to bear in mind their own products will take time to get through the whole design/qualification process to get to market. With rebadging that work is already done so you'll see it all far sooner.

That doesn't make any sense mate. They've just sold the company and handed the product to someone else. They don't have a website to visit, they have no stock, and can no longer make them. What exactly are they advertising?

Is it though? Not really. I reckon the fact Ali left the biggest firm in the game ,coupled with his number of fanboys, has done far more to get people talking than rebadging someone else's products as their own....

Surely if omc wanted to "get people talking" they'd actually bring out something of their own rather than just rebranding other companies kit like they are at the moment ?

I mean ripping it off is a bit much, there is currently the same set of hooks from VMC doing the rounds for about six big tackle firms haha. But I get your meaning credit should go where due. They did innovate it, a friend had one and they still got in though, only way to protect from rats is to mask the smell / donít spill etc.

Years of training in a bait unit with as it stands, no rat history lol

Since Rat Bag made the announcement this morning they've completely sold out of all stock after "overwhelming sales". I guess that shows us the marketing power of Ali and the mindset of your average angler. Absolutely ridiculous!

Yes. Rat bag did it first then carp couture ripped it off. My original rat bags are still going strong 8 years on. Brilliant product imo.

Edit: 9 years now!

These were my thoughts exactly. Iíve tried loads, Bank, ESP, Korda, AvidÖand although all fine at shorter range (<120) they all slip with a heavy lead on a big chuck. I use the thinking angers now and they are better, but a stop that you were confident would never budge would be something I would buy.

I've found the harder the hook stop the less it moves. especially when using bigger stops. If these stops are pretty hard and as above, longer then there is a good chance they'll be pretty solid on a big cast

Totally agree Yonny....

Not sure why the hate on this post. All companies sell products we think are pointless (Nash bivvy heater, Korda floss caps etc), but it looks like OMC are actually going to be releasing some really good products. Ali isn't stupid so left to create a brand of his own, instead of continuing to grow someone elses!!

Time will tell... Setting up a new buisness is always a risk. Hamidi is no mug. He got Korda to the stage where there are now through his Clever Marketing. He got a fella backing him who started multiple million pound clothing brand. Its early days but they've got all the ingredients for success right there.. good luck to them..

Ridgemonkey started with minimal products, possibly just one?
They built the brand first to gauge how well it was received, no point investing heavily if people arenít taking to the brand.

If it's made to be identical looking and smelling to a grain of hemp, yet able to exactly offset the weigh of whichever hook you are using , then yes. Otherwise it's a no, no , no and then , no.
