Companies you Like/Dislike for no apparent reason
8 Attachment(s)
Just cruisin the interwebz thinking and stuff and realized that there are just some companies I like for no apparent reason. Then I realized same goes for some companies I don't like, I don't have any good reason, I just dislike them. Keep this thread that way though, no bashing allowed. If there's a legitimate reason, it doesn't belong here.

Like. Forum. Their boards aren't bad or mind blowing, nor their bindings. Nothing fantastic, yet I find myself wanting one pretty bad every now and again. Special Blend. I don't even fit their outerwear at all, but for some reason I like them.

Dislike. Dakine. I've had a pair of their gloves and they were fine I guess, but for no good reason I just don't like Dakine. Rome Bindings. I've even ridden these and liked them, but for some unknown reason I just can't like the whole deal. Protec. I'm even likely buying a helmet from them for 2013, so this one is especially weird.

I found that to end snowboard discrimination I just hate every company.

Ive rented some,never owned one, but burton boards and bindings. I irrationally dislike them even though some of the rentals rode pretty well.

Pepsi... Fuck that commie cola!

Canon... I fiercely defend their stuff even though I've never owned the competition. And the canon copier we have at work is a heap. Brand new last year and it's always on the fritz...

Dainese... I'm an Alpinestars guy and found that in the sportbike world more duchebags wore Dainese than anything else. So I hate them. :D

Dislike- Head Snowboard even though I have never used their products. Burton Binding cause I refuse to use there binding because they refuse to make a board with a simple bolt pattern.

Like- Raiden phantoms for some reason and I dig K2 boards even though there prob not my first or second choice to ride.

Established ski companies selling snowboards. My dad has a Salomon and I internally mock him for it :cheeky4:

Just feels wrong...

I dislike bataleon even tho i have never ridden it and think its a good idea.

Mee too... just can't stand them, never owned one and you would expect with 75 years of ski engineering behind a company they might make a good board? But no... I hate them all.

For really no educated reason I dislike Flow, Gnu, Technine, Nitro, Flux, Grenade,

and for no good reason I like Yes, Never Summer, Lib Tech, Smokin, Rome (for saying FU to burton), Nixon, 686

Funny enough I absolutely hate Burton but my favortite clothes are Analog... ??? ya...

I hate Dakine too but its because in the 90's they made a mochery of snowboarding by providing ridiculous headgear to all the newbies making snowboarding look like a shortbus sport. Funny thing is I'm not even sure they were made by Dikine but in my mind they were so thats that.

Burton. Granted I have reasons to hate some of their products but I wont even buy their clothes. The only thing I have owned from them is socks and just git gloves from them. The socks suck. Let's see how the gloves are.
