    Since tying knots in Dyneema pull cord is so cringey, Im adding spliced eyes to all precut lengths of Dyneema cord.

    Why tie a knot in a perfectly good, spliceable, hollow braid. Spliced eyes are stronger, cleaner, and easier to attach. Mo betta.

    Are you offering a discount on per foot of the Dyneema pull chord?

    Current price is showing $0.35/ft
    200' shows as $85.99
    So 200' of "By The Foot" would only be $75?

    Either way, site looks nice. Glad to see it finally up after lurking on the "For Sale" forum.

    The 200’ precut length comes with a spliced eye in each end. That’s where the price difference is.

    It's good marketing if a product name gains enough traction to become a generic descriptor, but...

    Imagine if Ford released a model named "Car" or "Truck." Could get confusing.

    FiddleStick is a common law trademark for my product. It would be best if you did not use the name FiddleStick.

    Which is why I don't use that name.

    What I am saying is that people call the tool, regardless of the manufacturer, a Fiddlestick.

    People call generic tissue is still called Kleenex.

    You sell the Kleenex brand of toggles.

    Im selling toggles, as in "tissue", The generic term.

    I agree with the point but out of sheer pedantry I'll point out that for more than a decade Toyota sold a model known in the North American market simply as "Pickup". It did quite well.
