    That was really informative and well worth my 15 minutes. Gives you some perspective on how much goes into building a high end ski. They run a clean shop and really seem to care about repeatability and perfection. Cool video @Horton

    Interesting. I've owned a rainsong guitar before. Had no idea Denny was building pieces for them.

    Impressive! Makes me proud to have a few D3s in my boat. Can't wait for Part 2.

    Who knew D3 made other stuff?!

    Considering how few trick ski are around it amazing how much kit there was for making them
  • BoneHeadBoneHead Posts: 5,850
    I'd venture to say that D3 has the majority of market share for trick ski sales.

    The insert guy has to have a pretty high pressure job! After all that work it would be horrible to drill it incorrectly.

    Great video! Keep this type of video coming everyone. Considerably more interesting/informative than trendy music and an drone shot of someone skiing from afar or slow motion laughing...

    @Horton for you to be 90 minutes away from @Deanoski and myself and not come ski with us....... brings me to tears.......

    @skibrain no I do not think so. What I saw was VERY evolved.

    So Creed looks like the gray-haired sasquatch older brother of Mike Mapple. Hmmmm.

    Anyway, I've always been impressed with the quality coming out of Denny's products. Definitely a first class operation. Thanks for the tour!
    If it was easy, they would call it wakeboarding.

    Absolutely fascinating, and the best tour guide imaginable. What a treat! Thanks so much, @Horton. I no longer believe what they say about you.
  • HortonHorton Posts: 25,174 Administrator
    @Bruce_Butterfield if you saw the processes up close you would be more impressed with the quality

    Very impressive operation, considering the specialty product he is making it's really pretty amazing that the cost is where it is.

    I don't recognize any of the tools or processes. Way too fancy. Very cool though.

    Where's the grinder?
