gotta remember for a big company not all reps are skiiers, some like a friend of mine is a snowboarder and he is a winter rep for a company. we were shootin the shit and he said some things that were a little wrong about some of the new skis they are comming out with next year. I explained to him what it was and he said thanks. that was it, now he can correctly rep his gear, he didnt want to mislead but what they have to go off can be very confusing sometimes to someone who rides 1 stick not 2.
and i know some kids are gunna be like "well thats bull shit i want my company to be core as hell" bigger companies SOMETIMES mean better gear though (more money=more research=better product) i know thats not always true though
