Happy anniversary!

When do my ingnitions become collector items? Hope them custom mbsf never got used!

I'm generally not a fan boi type, but I have much respect for Mr. Ritter and spark R&d.

Innovation and great customer service. Expedited binders in semi custom miss matched colors, and honoring an expired warranty with no questions asked.

Congrats guys! Here's to many more years of success! :guinness:

+1, amazing where Will's innovation has taken our sport. All of us that rode slider plates will tell you that there would not be 15 split manufactures and feature films without the IgnitionI! I'm actually a little bummed I gave mine away now.

May have to throw down on some new Burners!!! Unless you consider me a "select pro" and want me to ride a proto Edison set-up this year. :headbang: :D

Spark has a life long customer. Not too many business owners will meet a fellow MN splitter for beers, and chats.

I look forward to many years of Spark goods!

Wow, the Edison won't be out until the 13/14 season and then only a limited release?!
Why did they hype it up at trade shows last winter if they can't release it this season? I'm guessing there's some serious kinks or they're just trying to build more hype :/

Regardless, they're a solid company with a solid product :thumpsup:

It was a prototype last spring. They will test it this winter. Then sell it next winter. This seems like a normal product cycle to me.

As for "limited release", this seems pretty smart to me. Will & Company are pretty savvy about building just enough to sell out each season. This keeps the price and perceived value of your product high. Better than have a firesale and flood the market with your unsold product, and have to discounted and closeout product being sold by non-dealers at year end.

Is there any more information on the new skins they'll be making? I've looked, but didn't really find much. I'm going to need some this season.
