Sometimes I think we need a gentle reminder to maybe take a few minutes to research the pair of skis we're considering buying. Whether that be from the information a manufacturer provides on their website, a review website like http://blistergearreview.com/ , or by doing a Google site search for NewSchoolers (because let's admit it, the NS' search bar SUCKS!) kind of like so:
When we neglect to do so, things like this start to happen:
Two guys who could have easily bumped old threads, bumped their own threads, or could have made one single thread. It gets annoying when there are so many of these threads where the OP can't do any of their own research and critical thinking to make a decision when buying skis, and expects everyone else to do it for them.
If you can't find any info on a pair of skis, whether a new model year, or an entirely new ski, then go ahead, that would warrant making a thread. But if you can bump an old thread, or even find your answer in one, then don't make a new thread.
So please, make use of Google's site search function, review websites, and some manufacturer information before you instantly jump to making a thread.
