Wrong thread, right forum and site.
This thread was started by RTTP to discuss his specific pair of skis. I'll gladly discuss construction techniques with anyone on this forum, but I don't think this thread is the place to debate construction and design.
Thanks for the answers. I suspected that was what you meant, but it wasn't how it sounded.
I feel like took offense to the fact that RTTP has these skis, and after apologizing he began to dump on custom/indy manufacturers in general. I'm not asking him to stop posting, I'm asking him to take the time to become familer with a company before he starts stating things that could potentially hurt them.
Comments like this, to me, appear unfounded and unnecessary.
Respect is certainly due all around. I think it is risky to make assumptions in any regard.
I can give you a list of people that I have or am working with to design skis, I assure you it is ALL about customer input. To date, I have turned away 3 customers. The first wanted a reverse camber ski that i was not capable of producing at the time, and the last two were interested in investing in the company. I was interested in working with them until they declared their intent on 51% ownership and gaining control.
I'm glad things are going well for you.
If anyone is interested, I started a Custom Ski Construction and Tech discussion to keep this thread heading in it's original direction. The reason this didn't exist already is that no one has asked before.
I'll be there.
