    That's a good idea. It could be as simple as management not staying on top of CS, in which case, the remedy is straightforward. Do you have those email addys? I'd like to send them links to a couple of threads...

    Agree as well. Contacted their Tech support for a computer issue before Xmas (while we were on a Trip actually using them no less) and have yet to hear back. Contacted them again a few days ago for another issue related to a reg, and have yet to hear back.

    The industry must also be in much worse shape than what most believe too if Zeagle/Atomic/Bare were takeover targets due to their inability to continue as going concerns. They all have pretty significant customer followings for at least their respective BC, Reg, and Wetsuit/Drysuit offerings

    RSG...

    Absolutely...PADI sold out...You don't sell out your life's work because you're making too much money...

    As far as brands like Zeagle and Atomic...They were always over-priced in my opinion...

    Personally...I always liked BARE...I have a ''pre- Huish buy-out'' BARE semi dry...it's a great product...

    I know there's been some recent ''quality'' issues...that have not affected me...but I liked Suunto as well...I always felt comfortable with ''Made in Finland''...

    The big problem is going to come when shops carrying products which have been taken over by Huish...start switching brands due to Huish's lack-luster dealer support...once this happens Huish will be in trouble if their not already...as will those stuck with Huish brand products...when support/parts start to disappear...

    I've always used DGX as a gauge...if Mark Derek drops a product line...like Atomic...Hollis...and a few others...there's good reason to stay away from it...

    Best...

    Never did receive a reply on either message left on 12/31. If it's impossible to get info pre-sale, what does that say about how a problem would be handled?
