Announcing the next PRE-SALE Event and GIVEAWAY!


PRE-SALE EVENT So very many of you have asked over the last few months if I was going to offer another pre-launch type of event to get the next round of hooks to market. My answer each time has been to ask for patience. Well, the wait is over!

I know it’s exciting but, please don’t skip ahead!
Please take the time to read the next section so you will understand what this is about. For those of you who participated in the Pre-Launch event, there are a few changes.


GIVEAWAY So you want some free stuff? Hooks, hats, and stickers? Well, Deb and I would love to give some away! In order to do so we have some needs, and a few rules.

As you go down the page you’ll see how this is going to work and you will be able to enter at the bottom of this page. It is important for you to know that you DO NOT have to buy anything to enter but, get your buddy to pledge ’cause the more goals we meet the more stuff we giveaway!

Pre-Sale Event

It’s time! Time to get the next round of hooks coming your way.

How does this work?

This works almost exactly like a Kickstarter campaign or other crowd funding opportunities where a pledge is made and you are not charged until a later date; a pre-sale, if you will. In one of the next sections, you will find “rewards” for which you can pledge. These are similar in nature to the reward packages that I offered during the pre-launch event last fall. I will run this pre-sale until mid-July

Any big changes from the pre-launch event?

YES!
1) You will choose your hooks at the time of purchase. No hook survey!
2) You CANNOT purchase a pre-sale pledge in the same cart as a regularly available item. I have no way to make the distinction between the pre-sale amount to be charged later and other items to be charged now. The cart will automatically empty prior to adding a pre-sale item.

What is the goal for the Pre-Sale Event?

The goal is to put new Firehole Sticks on your tying desk! Unlike the pre-launch event where we had to meet a “get started” goal to begin manufacturing and a final goal to complete it, Deb and I have been able to pull the trigger on the manufacturing of the next four models of hooks. They are already in process. We are running this pre-sale to build some capital upfront to offset some of those costs, complete the manufacturing process, and get ready for the next set of hooks.

What’s in it for you?

A new set of high quality, competition style, wide gap tying hooks designed right here at Firehole Central in Bozeman, Montana. The best part is that during the pre-sale these new hooks are available at some stupid prices. This pre-sale is offering the new hooks at 10% – 37.5% off the standard retail price of 10 bucks for 50 Sticks. Keep in mind that you will only be able to choose from the new models for the reward packages.

When will the new Sticks ship?

As of this writing (May 28th) I am expecting final shipment to arrive toward the end of July, about five weeks after I charge your credit card. Deb and I will take the necessary time to preform quality checks and properly label each box. If everything goes well I anticipate beginning the shipping during the first week of August.

Dealers.

As with the pre-launch event, I have three specific packages for you. Head over to the Firehole Dealer website for specifics. If you are not a current authorized Firehole dealer you will sign up on the website first and I will contact you. Current dealers can login and make a purchase.

The Giveaway(s)

As we get that next round coming your way, let’s give some away!

YOU have kept things going through continued purchases of hooks and YOU are supporting our small but, growing dealer network. Thank you.

While the pre-sale event for the next four models is going well, especially during a non-tying season, we would, quite honestly, like to try boost it a bit to meet the pre-sale goals.

About those prizes?

Each set of prizes will be given away when the goal(s) are met. The prizes will be drawn at random from the entries received up to through the goal date or the date we met the goal, whichever is sooner. The winners of Firehole Sticks will choose from all available models.
