uhh.. yeah Playitagain is a franchise. Not every store is going to carry the same stuff, it's all owned by local people who make the majority of decisions, including which shitty gear to buy, and which shittier gear to buy used and re-sell for shittier prices.
chilll buddy, southern ontario only has about 2 ski shops
its hard to find skis for us, i just wanted to let the people know
i had to sketchily order my skis off the internet for the past 3 seasons without even seeing them, thats noo good
play-it-again is the reason i was able to ski when i was younger. havent been in one in years though.
used boots and skis galore usually. the last thing i bought there were some salomon boots (either the 1080 or 720) like 5 years ago. cost me $70. its a great place if you have very little cash flow and need something that fits better or you wont worry about outgrowing by the end of the season.
poles are like the condoms that you took from your dads wallet when you were a little kid, at first you really didnt know what to do with them or why you had to use them... but you wanted them. as you got older and older you started to want them/it less and less... they feel akward and sometimes out of place...
but when its all said and done at the end of the day... your happy to have them/it.
