FRN keeps the price down.JD Spydo wrote: ↑Sat Oct 19, 2019 8:45 pmOK I'm with you. I love the Spyderhawk I now have 4 of them>> two users and two for the long term collection. But wouldn't you want a better handle than the current FRN handle it's been available in?? Or at least when it was still being sold in the main line up.
The Spyderhawk did really well last year with the H-1 Nuclear Orange model>> I believe as long as it's been disco'd that it's time to put it back in the main line up. Because there are many more users than there were even 5 years ago.
If they would make deluxe versions of the Spyderhawk and Harpy and target market them in major lawn & garden retail catalogs they would have trouble filling all their orders when all these people into gardening would catch on to how good they are for their hobby/job.
Besides, the handle on my Spyderhawk (and, for that matter, the one on my Tasman) has never been uncomfortable or slippery during long hours of tearing down our garden for winter.
I’ve come to conclude that Spyderco knows what it's doing market-wise. After all, it’s the one with skin in the game.
