Platz - Why the $$?
« on: August 15, 2019, 12:09:28 PM »
I'm sure I'm asking a stupid question here but why are all Platz pot calls so expensive?  No offense, just curious.

The ones I see for sale are triple the price of other high end calls. 

Is it the wait list?

Supply and demand. If you can catch him at a show with one for sale you can get a call for around $125. Guys are profiting off the fact that he doesn't take orders anymore.

Gotcha!  That's the only logical reason I could think of.

 Based upon my personal experience:

 -He makes calls that birds respond very well too.
 -The prices that his calls command  is a matter of supply and demand.

It's definitely a supply demand example, but the man makes outstanding calls. There is a reason for that demand and the prices they bring

Winning DD Adams which he has long deserved has also added value.

thanks for the input guys!

fyi, I was in no way questioning the quality of his calls or the pricing.  Just curious since I've seen several Platz on here and on ebay lately for big $.

Have you ever ran one of his glass calls?

I remember when the wait was 6 weeks when I got my calls from Paul, but that was probably 5 years ago,
before he gained the following he has now.
Great guy, and Paul does make a great call....but so do a lot of other lesser known pot call builders on this site.
I'm not waiting 3 plus years for a call, when there are other good options out there.
