Fun Trivia From Mark Stevens!
Pronounced – “VER-NET” as in the basketball “net!” A little fun trivia about the often time incorrectly pronounced name of the company, which is world famous for crafting thumb tips and many other magic items in Argentina. For most people they assume the ‘t’ in Vernet, is silent. If you asked one of the owners of Vernet, which version is correct – they are very smart and savvy, and their reply with a smile is; “either one is correct!” HA! Michele and Greco are a class act that have been around for years. I was with them in 2004 in Sao Paulo where I asked that very question. We have known them for a long time prior to 2004. In fact, they saved the day at the FISM in Portugal when one event was on a large night boat and the food was in short supply. Everyone at the table – my mother Martha and my father Joe Stevens included, were starved and the boat was in the water! The Vernet Team took charge and saved the day! They should have the titled 007 Vernet!
Ready for more confusing and fun trivia? The name of this product is – King Size Thumb Tip is equally misconstrued too! For good reason – as naturally people assume King Size means a larger girth size. In fact, the larger space is in the “length” of the Thumb Tip! So, if you have THICK thumbs, this is “NOT” the thumb tip you will probably want to buy. If you work with standard thumb tips, but would like one that features a larger, dare I write “load chamber” (that’s a funny term for a thumb tip huh), this is the model you should consider.
Of course there are methods for reducing the length of the tip and other adjustable features as well…. So concludes the interesting ad copy for the King Size – VerNET thumb tip! Thanks for reading this far! Mark Stevens
