OK, who's the doofus at Exel?

Postby Askel » Sun Dec 09, 2007 10:40 am

Ever since picking up skate last year, I've been completely frustrated with my pole straps- I just couldn't get comfortable in them no matter what I tried. So I went out yesterday with some determination to resolve this issue no matter what it cost.

So I try on the first set of poles I find...

"Hey these fit great!"

"Hey these straps look just like mine."

"Hey they're on backwards."

"Hey no they're not."

:oops:

Yes, the staps on my poles are mislabled. The right is left and the left is right. Once you get over that little hurdle, they fit just fine. :D

Who ever buys mislabeled poles? I'm no expereinced skater, but I do notice when Exels are on backwards :D
Glad to hear your skiing became so much nicer, at zero additional cost.
Go ask Exel about, they may be able to cut you a deal on correctly labeled straps. Like a trade, rare mislabeled ones for boring latest model ones.

Save those mislabeled ones.

They will be worth a fortune on e-bay sometime in the future.

Put them on your buddy's poles when he's not looking. ;)
