Shops around jackson charge MSRP, while evo and backcountry charge about 15% less for current models. and its not a dick move, its called being frugal. im looking to benefit myself, not others... i dont need their expertise and i just tell them to bring the boots out and leave me alone. i dont make them stand there for an hour and try to get all scientific on me. Half of them are idiots with a piece of paper certifying that they know my foot better than I do. The other half a very good at what they do, but i dont need there services usually.
Plus i buy all my shit from the year before, always have always will. If i could find a shop that was stocked to the brim with last years models, i would always help the shop out, but none do. So why would i spend 400 bucks extra for a pair of current Full Tilts when i can get last years on evo for 400 less? Even if i had to get my boots fitted, thats still 250 less. dick or not, no way in hell am i gunna spend 250$ more for every set of skis, or boots that i buy. no F'n way.
