Vance Zahorski hopes to hook a Shark when he pitches Line Cutterz, his fishing gear business, in Shark Tank episode 810. Vance is a life-long fisherman who got tired of biting fishing line and fumbling with knives and scissors while fishing. His first invention, the Line Cutters ring, is a ring that quickly and safely cuts fishing line without any other tools.
He also sells a hook puller ring that safely holds a hook while tying fishing knots. Both rings make it easier and safer to handle fishing line – especially when fishing from a kayak. Other items available on the Line Cutterz website include apparel, fish grips, lures, and fishing rods.
Zahorski is a 14 year sales veteran of the appliance and mortgage industries. He started the company in 2014 to merge his passion for fishing with a business. Each of his rings sell for $12-$20, depending on the style. In just two short years, Vance amassed a big following in the fishing community and his products sell internationally.
He likely needs a Shark's help getting into big box retail. Will he catch one?
