    2. Andrewsays:

      Definitely easier to sell if you can confidently stand behind your product… I’ll gladly tell a customer they “don’t what that” when it comes to device protection… I’d rather tell a client the truth than have them come back for issues we could be preventing.

  3. Btw, we also review gear on our page… Just stating out sharing our adventures an Instagram and YouTube.
    Nice to find all this info. Thank You!
