Nope! i refuse to be loyal to just one brand.... Although over last couple of seasons Blizzard has definitely edged me closer based on how they work for me and if I could have swung what I was looking for on the188 FIS W GS, it might have been an all Blizzi race quiver this year.....
Have at least tried to narrow it down to brand by discipline though....
so for this season it is looking like
165 FIS Slalom - Blizzard (or Atomic)
188 Fis W GS - Volkl (or Atomic) (or Blizzard when I want the 23m)
SG - Atomic 201/210
DH - Hmm, Probably 210 Atomic (or maybe Dynastar or Fischer...)
Freeride/Fat - Blizzard & Nordica
Boots - Atomic
yeah, maybe I do have a problem......
Funny thing is over the last few seasons, what i have lined up and planned to use in competition at the start of the season has rarely been what i have ended up the season using! last year the plan was to be all Dynastar for tech events and it evolved to all Blizzard..... I usually find through training/testing that something different just works better for me and have been fortunate enough to be able to switch about. (first rule of old guy Masters racing - can I buy an improvement?? ). So, yeah, i don't really care too much about the brand, just how well it works .......one of the reasons I can always be pretty objective in my views.
