there is a lot of hate towards Burton and it is interesting. for sure it is easy to feel like you are supporting the under dog, but knocking the top dog.
burton did well to corner a market early on and make massive capital because of it. this capital is now used to maintain their market position thru an influential team of professionals and a shit load of marketing.
does that guarntee that their products are the doggy's dangler? course not. but at the same time, it doesn't suggest that they no longer try to make good stuff.
i have had a few burton products. some broke, but their customer service was quick, courteous and generous. i have other stuff that still works and i cannot fault it. is it the best? well i dunno, and i won't know until i have tried absolutely everything that is out there! does it work for me tho? hells yeah. so who cares? let's go riding!
remember, opinions are like arseholes! we've all got one!
Just coz you don't understand it
Doesn't mean it makes no sense!
