Theres some weird things going on with the maggots and pm gear. Not everyone that has tried them has liked the bros, and not everyone has had the best customer service experiences. Different reviews of what should be the same ski (ie, 188 stiff for example) describe them as having very different flexes and skiing characteristics. However, if anyone mentions any of this at TGR, it starts a 8000 page flame war, and a lot of people get offended and can't look at things objectively. People get defensive about PM Gear because they see the company as being "good people" regardless of the product they make.
My point is that the people that think "Bros" is the answer to any "what ski should I get" question, no matter what, are really a small minority, they merely choose to be pretty vocal about their opinions. There are a lot of people that might like the bros, but aren't rabid about it, and some more people that will not be supporting pm gear at all. Pretty much the same split as with any other company.
