i think that line making 4 diferent prophets is just stupid because they will not not sell enoguh of them and then they will loose money and besides now whats the point of the ELIZABETH
if you dont think that there is 4 prophets then here http://www.akibasports.com/lineskis/06lineski.htm
first of all... skiing is becoming more popular and as skiing grows companies can afford to have more models... elizabeths are basically pollards pro model... also... there are no more mike nicks or skogens as far as i know(correct me if im wrong)... so, the different prophets make up for this loss
your worried about them not selling enough? why would that concern you? were you the one doing the market research on their end? it's all about customization today. people want something different than all the other kids on the lift, and the more choices you have, the better.
I hope that some day we will be able to put away our fears and prejudices and just laugh at people
