Okay, I'm a bunny!
LM has made my point. There's Naked Women on snowboards. We get nolo's dayglo yellow swirly 60's mindblowing surferstyle.........whatever. (no offense, nolo, but I don't like yellow...it makes me anxious...do they have that in green?)
My skis are so ugly I don't like to look at them. They were the ski to buy at the time, and they are GREAT skis, but they look better with snow on them.
They're a dull BROWN and light BLUE. BOOOOring! No one will ever steal these.
I look at new skis all the time. Who knows what this one does, and that one does (specifically) unless you spend HOURS poring over dry reviews (most of which are meaningless to me, the dull level 7 with powder handicap). Most of those are not written for people like me. Lars is right....what the hell does the salesman know? He hasn't skied them, and he isn't me. Half the time they just want a sale.
Even then, WHY should you have to spend hours reading to get the best buy? For most of us, it's not rocket science. I'll bet you most skiers spend more time reading ski gear reviews than they do research when buying a new car.
