My name is Evan, I am a field journalist hired on with a new startup Whitewater magazine aimed more towards Rafters and Catboaters. I am hoping to enlist the help of a few to finalize a poll for one of our new articles and your input is valued as boaters!
A couple of guidelines right from the start. I can't tell you the name of the new publication yet,(please don't ask). Please keep all answers in reference to known facts. I will be minimally interacting with this as I am totally un-biased from a writers standpoint. Oh and I have read through this forum a couple of times, please no bickering or fighting, unless it is absolutely necessary
The topic is on FRAME MANUFACTURERS in the Industry, we already have all the info on the rubber portion for another article so that does not need to be included.
We have already done extensive real world polling and have come up with a short list of manufacturers, I would like to get the opinions from this demographic to coincide with the current data before publication.
What I am looking for:
Advanced Whitewater frame manufacturers of today. ( These are valid businesses we are shooting for, I know everyone knows that one great guy who makes stuff. We are trying to stay out of peoples garages for this one.)
Below are the questions (enter a name of the builder you think fits this category best)
1. The Most advanced frame builder of todays era
2. Most radical new designs
3. Most diverse offerings
4. Most advanced material and construction methods
1. georges frames
2. bobs frames
Please be as un-biased as possible ( I know everyone likes to nominate the brand they own but really think about the questions.)
As you can see and have probably come to the conclusion we are doing an exclusive on just a select few and would appreciate any of your input to go along wit the current data collected mainly on the West Coast from California to Washington
I will collect this data for about a week and then it will be processed. THANKS TO ALL and this forum for the input and we are aiming for an early 2014 issue.
