You are certainly entitled to your opinion but a 25% falloff in sales is not merely the result of weather related circumstances. I would suspect that most skis at close to full ticket are sold in late fall or early winter before the weather really gets cranked up. Besides you might want to look at the on-line retailers. Hot skis disappear early on.
How you take me wondering about someone's ability after saying they say they "HATE" (a very strong word) as a personal attack is beyond me. I said it made me wonder, I didn't say you SUCK! You gave no description in a "mature" manner of what you liked or didn't like about the ski. Your comment still makes me wonder about your technique in that having skied for that many years my guess is you have the old school narrow and slightly rear bias stance. wwhy would expect to like the Metron????? to ski the metron you need cureent feet apart centered technique.
I have skied extensively on the Metron series so i have an enourmous amount of 1st had experience on both the 162 & 172 B5. I also know many other people (i can think of 12 right off the top of my head) who own the ski and ski on it still. including my 2 sons who were top notch racers. They love 'em! And Super G & Downhill were their best events!!!!!
Big deal, I've skied for almost 50 years too. Big deal, an MBA, I've owned my own retail store for 11 years and was in the Investment business for 20. Nah, nah nahnah, na
Now to Head. I also own 3 pair of Head skis all 3 06-07's. they are all excellent skiing skis and durable as hell. And skis as good as anyhthing I have skied on so I don't know what the hell you are talking about.
And you best not tread on the Supershape skiers here they might lynch you up!!!!
Back to the expense thing which you ignored completley! Atomic vs. Stockli. Yeah, Stockli's are a bargain???? And I am still confused by your Keelty/harb comment!
