Re: [df8m1] AAD Market / Competition

In reply to:
Full disclosure, I am Free Fall Accessories.

I am curious as to what everyone’s thoughts would be if an AAD was available that was made in the USA?

however it to is made outside the USA.

"buy American"?.

yo mean Walmart?? I get a real rush looking at all the American flags in Walmart, with the little made in China tags on them Crazy

NO.

I watch the "Shark Tank," on TV other day,...And I was surprized to see that this show specializes in moving jobs offshore, just like MITT! I am tired to see companies move offshore, not good for our country.

The problem is that no-one is going to switch AAD's, because a better, or even American Company makes it. Like comparing main canopies most individuals stick with just a few or stay with their first purchase. Which means your looking at the first time market, for the most part, tough market to penetrate, so to speak. Considering most startups want 80 percent margins and 100k take home in the envelope!

Good Luck
