I didn't say they have !!

Nash are or should be more like Nike as they have a strong brand name the problem is they shoot themselves in the foot quite often , NGT  are your primark.

The problem for companies the size of Nash is staying innovative in a packed market  where every product is copied overnight by other companies.

Never said you did mate. Should have quoted as to not imply that xx

Nige your sound to much like a Nash salesman  ooops you are :)

Yes, I work for nash but I try to stay away from being biased on here, especially with my title of a moderator. The thoughts I have put down in this thread, and any others, are my own and would be the same if I worked for said company or not. As you will have read, it’s a general point I’m trying to get across, hence the aqua tray comments.

that point being - yes, you can buy similar items to some products from outside of the tackle brands, but they probably haven’t been tinkered with, or developed for a nicer sounding word, to suit the angler. Handles on the bore tool, eva tray on the aqua product etc. Another thing to take into account when saying something is a pound cheaper (carp tax as some like to put it), a tool company like rolson (who are a budget brand by the way and coming from a construction background, I wouldn’t use their products), is that they would be buying/selling on a scale of probably 100,000 times more than a fishing manufacturer😉

What about the kettles and stoves then? Pay a good few quid extra for a trakker logo on the side? Naughty that. 

Like Nige says, most of it adapted for anglers in one way or another. But sometimes it’s straight up the same product with a logo on. Or logo taken off. Can not justify that.

Honestly mate, the nash one. £1.50 for it to fit into my tackle box and have an ergonomic, smaller handle than the large rolson one. The rolson one is designed to cut into timber, hence the larger handle. The nash one, suited more for cutting into boilies. 

Do you really believe that?

Or rather have you convinced yourself that?

Or even worse, who pays your wages, and be honest, because your bias is noted?

Nige,

I have had one for years, like the Nash one which I got from Screwfix, the countersinks are designed for wood, which is why they are hardened steel. The difference in handle size is for the size of the hand using it, NOT for what it countersinks into.

I could stick a countersink from my drill bit box into any of my removable bit screwdrivers if I needed to. The handle could be Stanley, a generic, or Rolson.

Nick, yes, I would rather pay the extra £1.50, for the reasons I have explained. 

 

Larger handle, larger torque, nothing to do with the size of the hand holding it!! You don’t see a screwdriver for use on say a watch or jewellery with a big handle like that on a large slotted driver you would use to screw in the screws on a door hinge. Or are you saying all jewellers have baby hands?

Don't be facetious; jewellery screwdrivers are tightened with fingertips not with hand pressure.

My point has been, the countersink itself, the head on that is exactly the same from manufacturer to manufacturer. Come on, admit it, you work for Nash, this is taking the mickey out of anglers. When Rolson or Famag, Screwfix or whoever sell their hand countersinks, none are above £6.20. You by choosing manufacturer can get the handle size or shape you want. I can go into B&Q and buy one from a choice of manufacturers, and I am willing to bet that I could find one in the exact same shape as the Nash one.

(Just to say, I have been in B&Q recently as I bought myself a new tile cutter, dowel and edging to renovate a bathroom and make a new bath panel, including countersinking the screw heads).

Nash Bore Tool is more expensive than all of the countersink tools on sale there.

A few £ try £30. My bulin cost me £15 from China (albeit it with a £5 off voucher)  and is exactly the same bar the ignition has Trakker on it as my mates........ he payed £45 for his...... now that is carp tax. I like to remind him every session that when he brews up his tea tastes better than mine due to his superior and vastly more expensive stove. 🤔🤔😂😂😬

Yep, you have a choice as you say. Now there is an option that you can choose, if you so wish, that allows you to buy from the same shop that you are in when purchasing the rest of your tackle. One that has been tweaked to suit the angler rather than the carpenter for various reasons like ergonomics in use, fitting in your tackle box, colour coded to tie in with the rest of your rig tools etc etc. 

Yet companies are taking the mickey out of anglers for offering this🤷‍♂️.

People who will find use for items like the bore tool may buy one.

Some people who might not have thought of using said tool may buy a similar item from a hardware store.

Some people may have had one for years, like yourself, who might not have utilised it in their mounting of baits and now will.

Some people may not see the need for one in their angling and not purchase one.

And some people may have better things to do in their lives than carry on an argument over something so minuscule as a rig tool for the sake of trying to have the last word🤦‍♂️

Opinions are like noses, we all have one and pick it. 

Every company (tackle) will sell to demand and bring each new or copied product to market in search of the next big thing.

That's business and whilst we find certain points/products to make fun of, they are in it for the money and in turn hopefully keeping humans in employment. 

Tackle tarts keep the premium brands in business and most working poor class have to go budget range, not necessarily through choice. If money was no object I'm pretty sure most of us would buy the best product available. 

In my experience Trekker is the brand I avoid due to the few products I've brought being very poor quality and falling to bits on the first few outings.!! Not so with Nash/Korda & the like, I'm sure we all have their products and they serve a purpose in the carp fishing world! 

For example I like the Korda pulling tool, I would not use a coat hook from B&Q

I do think that Nash create products that aren't already in the market place and develop ideas that will improve someone's angling, not everything will but at least they try to bring fresh ideas, 

Greekskii I know people have been making untidy rigs and catching for years but for me a neat snowman would be a good thing, might make a 0.5% edge but add all those little extras up and it gives you confidence, 

I reckon I've got a countersink in the garage will try and make a nice snowman rig with it today, but without seeing this Nash tool I probably wouldn't have thought about it, so they have bought a product that may help someone's angling

Just to play devils advocate......... if we all went with the cheaper,none angling based products as mentioned above with the said bore tool........ how long would our already dwindled tackle shops survive. 🤔🤔🤔🤔🤔

As I’ve already made clear I luv a bargain,but it has to be a bargain a tenner or twenty £ cheaper. I ain’t gunna split hairs over the price of half a pint of Guinness 🙄🙄

Its gone on for years not just with tackle but also as some will know with bait as well. There’s always somebody doing the ripping off and there’s always somebody being ripped off,by who and how much is entirely your decision 😉😬

I've used wooden balls for baits, so I countersunk some, counterbored others to stop crayfish pulling boilie stops out. Thought 'hang on, that looks tidy, i'll do some real baits' so used the countersink for them.

Colour coded?

Would you like fishing colours?

 

 

Yes I use my local tackle shops, yes I have worked in my local tackle shops, and there is always a rep coming in and trying to sell the latest 'must have'. Do you know how much stuff gets purchased and then ends up in the '90% off' bucket after being unsold for 5 years?

I was thinking about this product and it reminds of bait drills (the ones for boring out pop ups for foam). I started with drill bits many years ago, way before a tackle firm bought one out. When they did bring one out (Korda I think it was) I bought one and it did make life easier. Same deal imo.

I must admit I find it a little far fetched to say its been adapted to suit the angler , made different maybe so that it looks nice and fits in the tackle box or economical packaging from China (to save money)

I'm not knocking what Nash are doing as they are a business who's sole purpose is to make money , its just how it's trying to sold as unique.

Don't people mainly use wafters nowadays anyway for a balanced hookbait ? 🤔

Companies like Nash need to re-invent , we've had the chod,ronnie etc  , they'll probably bring a range of end tackle out sold around using the snowman .

Just remember there is little if anything new in fishing

Like other things, I should have patented and registered the idea to stop tackle companies ripping anglers off😖😉😀

We all know carp and brand tax exists.  But but up to the Individual  on what they  to pay. Companies exist to make money and if they can brand it  market  it and sell it make money they will
