Long wait but nice WIN today in Elorde, full brother of my Paling Boston line unscratched. Second time today that we have only been able to fight one bird of three brought for battle. ULOT negotiation is getting harder to do nowadays.
Thanks Mr. Saint for joining me.
Happy for your new future farm in beautiffffoooool BAGUIO! Your entryname will need changing to something more relevant to Baguio.
Lucky you. Cockfighting vacation. It was a busy work day gor me. I hope next year my infrastructure will suffice for me to have a vacation.
Sharing a post:
Hehehehehe that's what I would call pure branding. The question posed is what makes a good brand? And what makes a good product?
A great brand would never sustain a lousy product. Buyers may try it once but once they fail to deliver to expectations then the products go kaput.
A great product many a times build a great brand. But that product has to be consistently great. And consistently branded. Otherwise it becomes a generic that anyone can claim to have. And that poses a challenge - of how to seperate the grain from the chaff.
So what is it we want? For all breeders, a good product is a must. A winning line. A CONSISTENTLY WINNING LINE.
For the passionate breeder, the brand is immaterial - accomplishment and personal self actualization is enough (yup some get it from breeding - others from some other source - to each his own).
For the true commercial breeder, branding his goods is important - as this allows him to leave a legacy. If its well branded, its an assurance it can be relied on. Think Toyota or Colgate or Coke.
But for the trader - carrying other people's brands is all they aspire for. No dishonor in that. Ive met many billionaire distributors who are pillars of the economy. But they also do their share of keeping the products/brands in optimal condition until they get to the consumer. An entity that mishandles a product can never be a good distributor.
Whichever type of breeder one is, is a personal choice. No one greater than the other. Only individual adventures leading to the pit. Whether one breeds 1 pair or 10, 000 : WHEN THEY MEET IN THE PIT WITH KNIVES ON - THEY ARE ALL EQUAL.
Sabong is the great equalizer. Have fun and have a happy NEW YEAR everyone! !!!

i read on the other thread that the sk wt.limit is up to 2.5kg,is that definite sir?....just asking!......if so,that would be nice and interesting of course....
Have a wonderful new year everyone!!!
Thays what I was told was the weight limit was for the Nfgb sk derby. It would have been great if they made it 2.8 so even the 3/4 and 50:50 could participate!
Hi Kahuna, pla pm me your email address. Happy New Year :-)
As to the effectiveness there were quite a number of short knife fights posted on this thread and many of them are in my youtube account. Ill try to locate the links also.
The more recent modifications we made were on the Philippine style tape system and how to make it short knife appropriate.
On the videos, I think Mr Saint also has some and is a lot better than me in locating links :-)

sir whel here's the video that you requested, the guy in red who handled our hiraw in the pit was our bet taker. hehehe that was my ulot and ang kalaban ay kumagat sa tari na may sima. i was just like fishing in the matching area just waiting for a nice match and may lumaban ng 8/10 sa size difference. hehehe we were still lucky because magaling din opponent. sir jailbird i will drop by tom but i dont have any warriors to bring due to the sudden notice. if i was told yesterday i could have brought some rejects from the farm.
