I think most of the people who work in shops know about the Salomon deal going on (or was going on? iono...might be sold out) with the pilot missing the yellow salomon logo near the tip. I dunno if I'm at liberty to say what the cost of them were, but anyhow, they were dirt cheap. Then I go on eBay and see people (the same people as a matter of fact) just selling them as "limited edition" skis. They're getting prices and making a reasonable profit.
Which comes to my next question. Proform basically says that the skis or equipment you buy are for your own personal use. I feel like the few people who do these kind of things ruin it for the rest of us who follow policy. Hell...the ski manufacturers don't have to have things such as pro-forms, but they do. And i personally think it's a privilege for the employees that go around being abused a little too much...what do you guys think about that?
