Long Post! you'll care if you have reactors or are interested in Line a lot, or just like ski politics and bs, otherwise just click back lol.
Since I, and many others, broke our first pair of reactors, got a second pair on warranty, (and Im only assuming its a short matter of time till we break them again), after a year past the purchase date are you going to fuck us on warranty?
I demo'ed 90% of next years twins, (except for Line because their rep didn't show up, and Liberty and ninthward only cause I haven't had the chance). Aparently the Lines have only minor changes from this year's. Saying that, the Lines are decent, but there are better preforming twins out there, especially depending on what you want them for (pipe, carving, jibs, etc).
Currently I like having a Line setup because I can save on bindings and switch my reactors between my skogans and mo ships at will, and next year maybe some chronics as well. So if, and likely when we break our reactors again, will we be having to buy new bindings... if yes, why would I buy another reactor? are they going to be proper this time and not break?
What should happen is like when a car manufacturer finds that they've fucked up and they recall the cars for safety issues and update it for free or for a small fee. If I have to buy another reactor and have no reason to believe it won't happen again other than "trust me", I won't buy it. I don't think anyone else will either. I took a chance, knowing what I was buying and the risk of it, and right now Im worried, and hope I didn't invest wrongly. I know 98% of whoever reads this will agree with me 100%.
Personally i think Line should be addressing this issue and informing people as best they can much before next season. I want a pipe only ski, and if Im not sure Im gonna be presented with a good binding, Im switching brands for my pipe ski because I know there's better preforming pipe skis out there. I'm a huge fan of Line and what they do, but when shit happens and I waste my money, I dont like that so much.
Anyone who has reactors is prolly a decent sized Line fan, and if all we reactor owners get screwed, thats a big market chunk, a relieable annual profit generating chunk at that, out the window for Line.
I wanna see some hits from people who agree with me and maybe a post from someone at Line, that or I'll mail a version of this to them if we get no answers on NS.
