just to be totally counter-survey, i bought my darksides last year after demoing them. they're ducktape grey (ugly color) but easy to find on the ski racks. i tested dem biznatches for all day, and they rocked my world. so i bought em. no pro influence (nobody rides the darkside as a pro, right?) no graphics influence. little bit of net influence cause i had read they were good, but that's about it. the reactor bindings that i got with em were the only technology aspect of it....... and i was 15 at the time. i don't think that there's as much stupid out there as some people think, but there are definately some grade A dipshits.
That's Mr. Bangor to you!
