GAC latest catalogue
« on: January 29, 2022, 01:47:53 PM »
Is it just me or has there been a big hike in prices. Not just on a few items but across the board. Also note on he front page  quotes 1.000s of new items. other than a few it looks like much of the same stuff as before.
A wee question why do firms have just about everything as 100.99. Not the 100 but the 99p. GAC & they are not alone have just about everything like that. I have always wondered why. Sure some of you marketing people can tell me.
last question
How may fly reel or lines can we buy. A rough count there are over 80 fly reels on offer & that does not count size & colour combinations of the same reel similar with fly lines. We wont go down the rod route but you get my drift. Enquiring minds & all that.
Been a slow week   ;)

Everything is up in price across the board Alan.
The bill has arrived for having millions of people sitting at home on their arses being paid for doing nothing for 2 years.

Your probably right Fred. Still plenty of choices for a new reel there Fred for your new to come rod. Think a traditional reel might suit the bill. Well your choice.

I was told the .99p was so that the till had to be opened to give change and the sales assistant couldn't just pocket the money  :(
Don't worry, be happy.

One person in retail said to me it's just phycology

99.99 is under 100 while 100 is not!  Folk just look at the digits to the left of the decimal point.   :)

The choice is overwhelming Alan. Sometimes when I have too much choice I end up choosing nothing.  ;D
