Total nightmare scenario is unfolding before my eyes here and its only November, yikes. Put in an order for skis at a brick and mortar shop couple weeks ago with the brand rep there, filled out the paper form signed sealed delivered I'm yours right? Not a chance as I get an email from the shop saying oops, actually theyre all sold out. Find the dealer services number for the manufacturer, he tells me yeah theyre sold out and they dont know when theyll get more. Now I admittedly dont have much knowledge about the manufacturing side of the industry, but this seems off the wall. Like youre telling me the lights are off at the factory, sorry no more skis for the winter? Its only November! This is one of the largest manufacturers in the business, obviously if it were a couple dudes in a garage I would have an easier time believing the shortage.
Love to hear from anybody involved in hardgoods to shed some light on what the hell is going on around here
