    Always good to have an extra for your forgetful, dirt bag buddy.

    yeah we made a dent in those too - they went from “In Stock” to “20 Remaining” to “13 Remaining”


    and counting....

    or, you can be cheap like me and make your own saw. I made this saw, and downloaded a free slope angle app and saved ~$50

    $19.95

    $17.48

    Dang, I didn’t see the saws till it was too late. Just picked up the B1 shovel. Looks like they are down to 8 now.

    Hope that you ski well, because it appears that your reading is as bad as your math.
    Free clinometer vs. $30
    Blade sitting around the workbench versus $30.
    Paint stirrers and duck tape also sitting around.
    So, for the two, my cost $10-12 vs. $60ish
    Savings = ~$50.

    I don’t know how the clinometer came into the equation.

    Yeah, that is my fault, or my extrapolation. Shovels, snow saws, hell if I made a probe, or beacon, I would have included it. You know, free out of bounds snow tools.

    well, I like this saw

    watching the BCA video, I see that it's got the same razor double cut teeth as the Corona saw, so I'd imagine that's who's making them for BCA - and it should work with my BD poles (I think)

    and, yeah - y'all are a bunch of scavengers - I like it

    in less than 24 hours we cleaned that shop out of all of the old stock of BCA shovels and saws - I wonder what that looks like on their end - are they looking at this little surge in traffic wondering just WTF is going on?

    I think I'm going to contact them and give them a heads up and maybe see if they'll do something for us with a Maggot group discount - obviously we buy shit - and we are loyal as fuck

    Also mention their amazon storefront sucks. I went there and tried to search by brand but it didn't work at all. Can't scroll through 5k items

    yeah - the Amazon store does suck - also, when I looked at their own website the prices were $10 more than on Amazon
