When you can do something no one else does, you can charge whatever you want. You know how expensive custom clothing is?



What exactly can they do that no one else does?

You don't like Simms. We get it. Are they expensive? Sure. Are they worth it? Almost assuredly yes, especially if you fish hard all year long. You have to decide whether they're in your price range or not and if they're worth it to you. It sounds like they're not for you. Time to move on it looks like. Not sure what you were hoping to accomplish here by reopening a 6 month old thread.
