Feet off? Meters left? Survey says at least 76% of you ( @Horton included ) refuse to think metric.
So here you go. And maybe this will help you explain things to a few non-skiing friends.

Shorten The Line Shirt

Men's S and L-sleeve T's, plus a women's V-neck style.

    Super-cool look, but why have the numbers at all?

    As a general rule, I get so many free T-shirts that I don't spend actual money on them, but I think I might just have to buy this design if it were just the ropes themselves.

    Hmmm. @Than_Bogan are you saying the design sans numbers holds the potential for intergalactic imperial vs metric vs delta conceptual convergence?

    My brain hurts!
    Stir vigorously then leave!

    Yes, that is exactly what I am saying.

    Just to be clear, my initial thought was to be open minded and feature metric length remaining vs feet removed. @Horton nearly assigned me a panda. I'm a big fan of continual improvement and I think the community (well, @Than_Bogan ) just improved this.

    I will need to take the design down and do some quick rework later today. Crazy busy day, but stay tuned.

    I think it would be interesting to have the buoy placed relative to the handle. A line of buoys across the individual ropes, one buoy on each rope at an aligned location. That tells you what you need to know.
    The worst slalom equipment I own is between my ears.

    I prefer the numbers. Otherwise it's just a bunch of ropes, especially to the un-initiated. And $5 bucks says @Than_Bogan won't even buy this shirt ...
  • Than_BoganThan_Bogan Posts: 5,620 Mega Baller
    @jcamp Probably a smart bet.

    But it's nonsense to the uninitiated no matter how you adjust it. I'd guess that less information leads to fewer stupid questions.

    @BOS_Shirts You should be able to highlight or use a brighter color and customize the line length of your best score....then as people PB on a new line length, they have to buy a new shirt. It is a return business generator.

    @skibug you should just order a panda shirt for that last post

    @skibug I like your thinking. In the mean time, have you ever heard of a laundry marker?

    Speaking of a business generator, @Horton how about awarding the coveted Panda gif automatically debits a forum member's PayPal account and generates a shirt order? There might need to be a frequent-panda volume discount provision.

    I can't read which numbers, metric or feet, are on the shirt? I think it should be both, that way when I watch a tournament I can look at the shirt to figure out which rope length the skier is at in feet. Most announcers use metric and I do not know the conversion method without a calculator.

    I say leave the numbers. In fact make them metric so when I'm watching a tournament I know what length they're skiing.

    I liked the Delta someone suggested. Numbers no one would understand. Better conversation starter.

    Ordered mine this morning. Could add a hoodie!

    Here's a thought - how about adding "Shorter is better" to this shirt? :)

    Metric and Line off #'s would cover all aspects of skiers math abilities!

    Not sure I know what I am doing. The boat goes I follow. Trying to perfect the deep water start. Squirrel!

    If the US would just go all metric and stop clinging to imperial a lot of things in this world would be easier.....

    @Horton Ha!! Thats funny. I was conflicted which way to vote as I am generally exposed to feet off more (being in the US stuck in an antiquated system and all....) It is a pet peeve of mine that the US has been to stubborn to adapt to the BETTER and simpler system in all areas.....not just water skiing.

    Ask peopel from Gt Britain about the imperial pint of beer and the new metric version. Not sure beer drinkers would agree to your simpler and better comment. :)
