Although I understand MAP structures have pros and cons, in many industries they amount to little more than price control by a cartel.
It is hard for me as a consumer to empathize with product line that routinely goes on sale for 40%-60% off and still manages to turn a decent profit moving most of their inventory at that price point. All that really says to me is that I am being gouged. Somehow, the people who defend this practice tend to be retailers or entities whose proforms help them avoid the issue entirely...... but I do concede that is it currently more a minor annoyance and less a problem since there are secondary avenues available for people looking for stuff for cheap.
That being said, I don't have any problem at all spending extra cash with a retailer who puts the time/effort in giving me good service or making sure that I stay informed which Wired definitely has.
+10 for WiredSport. I am looking for a couple of items for a possible 2nd trip this season and your website will be the first stop I make.
