Korda Kaptor hooks on ebay are £1.99 posted. Discontinued or terrible hooks?

I’ve just started using them again since they became so cheap online I grabbed a load, used them in the past and they’ve been spot on

At that point it's not a "side hustle" though. The logistics of that would be a full time job surely? Unless maybe there's a way to automate it somehow.

He’s not doing it with 1 pack though
He’s doing it with thousands
He probably only paying 10p a pack because of the bulk.

Explains why I’ll never be a millionaire coz I wouldn’t want to do it..

Pretty sure this is how Ricci started out before he built up to his current place with FishOn.

He did a really good interview on one of the podcasts, maybe Nash.

Never understood how this works, how do people make money having to, label and take 15 envelopes of hooks to the post office every day. Surely all the time and effort negates the 50p profit per pack you make?

Listened to the same podcast I think it was the guy who's in with Daryl on the Carpfix venture, a good idea buy cheap overstock or end of lines etc.. at the right price then if you've got room to store it and in no rush to move it list it on ebay at a marginal profit and let the sales steadily tick away.

One of the guys who did a podcast buys from all the major brands and puts them on eBay as a side hussle.
Used to work for Korda or cypography (not Elliott)
He got the idea of his father in law who buys overstocks or something like that

Be careful when buying hooks off people rather than businesses from eBay / online auction shops…..

I heard about one chap who bought hooks from tackle shops and used them then re-packed them and sold on eBay, to fund new hook purchases….

There’s wronguns everywhere…..

I thought the Kaptor hooks were ok, as previously said, the smaller sizes are nearly always on offer in the clearance section of the online tackle shops

The small sizes are always being sold cheap, I'm guessing many people use them
