Most people don't have a clue unless they do their own homework and get off their ass and into a shop and do the dirty work. Everybody wants to take the golden word of the internet..."I saw it on the internet, so it must be true"
Your right about that. I've messed with the new contact pro at Peter Glenn and I'm impressed. But personal experience is the best review one could have.

I'm not a Burton guy but after demoing their Cartels last season, that would be a clear choice imo. Have owned several pairs of Forces and although I liked them at first, they have been seriously outclassed by their competitors the last few seasons.
