quite ironic; cauz you KNOW for a fact that I have no clue??? haha!
for the record: I have nothing against Liberty or 9th either, really not! this was not a classic "hate" message, just some reflected thoughts. you are free to disagree!
and, here's some numbers:
they are in their 3rd year in the skiingbusiness, and claim they produce 1000 pairs for the season 05/06, that is world wide (Europe, Asia, USA and Canada)! 3rd year: 1000 pairs! if you think there's any money in selling 1000 pairs of skis (after production costs, research, team, salary, marketing...), well, you're the one not having a fucking clue! of course, they can still grow and expand, but by the 3rd year, they should already be far beyond 1000!
To compare, both Armada and 4FRNT, in their first year of distribution in (a small country like) Norway, both sold over 200 pairs each! On their 3rd year in Norway this season, Armada easely sell three times that number now!
