Gamma line myth ????

Recommended Posts

Well while at BPS today I was looking over the line section trying to find a replacement for Gamma which was my line of choice until BPS stopped selling it.   

To my surprise another person happend to ask the sells person if they had any gamma flourocarbon line.  The sales person replied that no BPS does not carry gamma products anymore.

The sales person didn't elaborate as to why and went on his way.   While still looking for a replacement line still the salesperson came back and asked if he could help me find anything.  We struck up a conversation and I stated I really hate the fact that gamma is no longer producing line anymore.

His response was yes they are they just come out with a new flourocarbon called Ice flouro.  He said we just don't carry gamma anymore.  I asked why he said he had no idea.   Said you can still get at tackle wharehouse and cabelas

To my surprise he was right  I looked it up and they do sell it at cabelas still and  nothing on gammas website stating they are discontinuing their fishing products

Have I totally missed something here or what a few weeks ago I was told on here they was getting out of the business

Last I heard they were still getting out of the fishing line business but they were in the process of trying to sell off their line division.

The Gamma fishing division is going out of business.

There has been rumor that another company has expressed interest in buying the division.

Retailers are probably selling their remaining stock. After that, no more line.

Your stock broker or investment counselor can tell you what is going on if you are interested.

If you do not have either then speak with the bank manager at your branch and ask them to see what they can find out for you.  :D

I can't believe nobody here reads another site.

From the "Dock Talk"section of "another site" ::D

"Gamma gets out 1/19/2010

     

Gamma Technologies is pulling out of the fishing-line business. The news was announced in a note to its pro staff, which stated that henceforth, Gamma would focus solely on its tennis division, where the company has been exceptionally strong for almost 3 decades.

Gamma's rise to fame was notable as it forced many line manufacturers to rethink and retool their own fluorocarbons.

Gamma's fishing-line endeavors began with Frog Hair leaders for fly-fishing. It then began to explore opportunities in bass fishing and attended the another site Top Gun Championship in 2005. There, many pros like Greg Hackney, Brent Chapman, Matt Herren and Jeff Kriet became familiar with the line and joined existing Gamma pro-staffers such as Dave Lefebre.

Despite its high price point of about $28 per spool, Gamma made significant inroads in the bass market, but things began to unravel when Gamma product-line and pro-staff manager Tom Ference was let go. Most of the pro staff was cut or chose to depart soon after.

"In light of this decision Gamma Technologies is not offering sponsorships for 2010 and effective immediately all existing agreements are canceled," the note read.

Got any Gamma? There's a good chance it might be worth more than you paid for it when current retail stocks run out. If you need to stock up, the another site Store still has it in stock. "
