    Hi guys!

    I'm thinking of running a mid-winter group buy on my original grips (the ones before the super sharkskins) when I get back from the Dealer News Expo Show in Indianapolis at the end of February.

    I only have a limited number of sets of these original grips (these are the regular sharkskins (before I upgraded this past September), and I will be blowing them out for:

    $15/set !!!!! (with free shipping conus)

    . . . . . . . . . . .so it will be first come/ first serve.

    Please indicate whether you'd be interested in this sale by posting your thoughts here, and I will react accordingly, and key off you guys.

    Thanks for your consideration, guys!!!!!

    Best,

    Dave R.

    Keep the input coming, guys. Helps me get a more accurate idea of whether this will be worth it to me or not. The more who show interest, the more it makes sense for me to offer them at such a steep discount.

    Let me know when & how to order. I will probably take a pair of the old & the new to make a comparison test. Sometimes the new & improved aren't all that new & improved in my opinion.

    I'll take another pair of the originals... mine lasted a season before showing wear.
    Is the new model more durable?

    gonzo2k-

    Glad you asked that gonzo2k. Only about 5% of my clientele gave feedback that they'd like a little tougher, more durable set of OGB's, but we decided to re-design/reformulate the composition of our neoprene, anyway, based on that minority feedback. I am nothing if not the quintessential consumer looking for good value, so in my mind it a'int OK unless it is as close to perfect as I can make it. That being said, there will still be detractors out there, regardless of how hard you strive. I know this, though: I am committed to making my product the very best it can be. I guess this is the long way of saying that most agree that the SUPER SHARKSKINS are the most durable model of OGB's yet. That also being said, I have many many customers like yourself who were very happy and satisfied with the original models I will be putting up for 40% OFF during my midwinter blow out group-buy sale later this month (remember: these will be in limited quantities, so first come, first served!!!).

    Thanks again for your brand loyalty and your support.

    Best,

    Good to get this feedback. Madly preparing for the trip next week to Indianapolis for the dealer show. Will definitely run the sale after I get back. Will just have to make a few small changes to the website to accommodate the sale.
