I remember when I bought my first pair of LINE chronics, Mike Wilson rode for them. Over the yrs, they've dropped Wilson, Skogen Sprang, and Ashley Battersby, without picking up more pros. Why not? I now LINE is active in the AM scene, and Pollard reps and designs most of their skis, but why not sign or retain more pros? I saw Levinthal in an interview once after they dropped everyone but Pollard a few yrs ago say that they were looking for the industry's "next big talent" to come along. Why, so they could sign them for a yr then drop them too? I don't get it. Pollard is the master, but it just seems like a way to save a buck to not keep more pros on the team.
