Firehole Sticks Categories & Model Numbers

Coming up with the hook categories and model numbers was one of the biggest decisions I had to make for the product line and for the business itself. The hook categories were a relatively easy decision but, the model numbers were another story. I could use random numbers, I could choose a complicated system where each digit of the number means something with regard to the mechanics or characteristics of the hook or I could make it simple and truly meaningful. I chose the later. It is important to me and Deb that we model every aspect of our business after our faith and the model numbers for the Sticks were no different. Each model number is a reference to a different scripture in the Bible; each chosen specifically for the message it conveys. For your reference, they are listed further down on this page. For specifics about each hook, you can view their descriptions and you can also visit the sizing and characteristics page.
