I was jut saying that on epic there are quite a few cases of brands or products being called out for a variety of reasons. Some more valid, others less valid. Its worth noting that almost all of the regular contributors at the time seemed to think the atomic thread was totally off base back in 2007.
Just out of curiosity, how many days did you get on the metrons before they croaked? 100-150, 150-200, >200?
it wasnt just metrons it was SL-9, M-exs, 2 pairs of sugar daddies, and lots of other skis that I heard about. I see what your saying about use but I have had PE, and gotama's last for over 300 days with edges still in tack.
