LOL.

Although the OP's right, someone will spend money on it.  I wouldn't invest in the product's future though.  Self-styled ninja bear-bag hangers are a pretty niche market.

I'll personally pass, but thanks for the laugh anyway.  "Killer" :laugh:

Did I just see those selling for 85 bucks?
Hmm.
I'm pretty sure for 5 bucks I can pay someone to hang my bag for me.

So what are you going to do on your 18th trip. At that point you'll be losing money. :)

Both true apparently, because if you notice they are sold out...

Well, they're on back order which in itself doesn't necessarily say a lot.  Even products that haven't yet officially been released can be on back-order before a single one is sold.

Or, they could be selling by the millions.  Who knows.

Darn it! I guess I HAVE to buy one. ha ha.

I guess it is pretty clever, if it was much lighter and dirt cheap I would consider it a luxury item.

Sharpen the points and you make it multi purpose by being able to throw it at and kill a bear just like a Ninja. Or make it out of plastic and have a fun toy to play with, like a frisbee. What will they think of next?

I need it. It will match my ti mug and spork, and can be used to hunt small game in a survival situation.
