I will agree with you there buck. It is ashame that manufacturers ALLOW themselves to be strong-armed price-wise. Many, many times I have watched manufacturers drop extreme points to entice mail-order to take their line. Don't hate the player, hate the game.Originally posted by buck183
The competition part of the business isn't what bothers me. The manufacturer's could eliminate people like Summit and Jeg's from strong arming the prices. The little guys are what put these people on the map with the buying public. Then they drop them for large mail order companies. If they companies would lock in pricing like Westin does this wouldn't be an issue.
It's a game played by all...
