Companies you Like/Dislike for no apparent reason

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.

Snowboarding Is...

That thing I do to escape the world and have fun with my friends

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.

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.

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.
