Something finally happened! I got invited to englandby Graham Jelley, the head of the Scorpion-company.
First I got all these proposals from you guys about which rib to bye. Then most of the rib-manufacturers got mail from me, being given the chance to give me a price. Everybody has replyed, but only Scorpion took the time to list everything I wanted and priced it, with differenciated prices depending on what I wanted.

Then Graham Jelley called me today, and invited me over to England to test their ribs. So on Saturday me and my two best frends fly over the oacen to have a nice time with the Scorpion. We stay until Thuesday evening. Because we are staying so long and travel so far, I tried to make an appointment with another ribmaker i have mailed as well, but unfortunately the other company seem to have troubles finding time for a testride for their customer!

I will get back to you and tell you about the testride!
Have a wonderful evening!
Martin

Hey Martin - Good Luck !!
From a Scorpion owner to a 'potential' Scorpion owner.
Make sure you chat to your bank manager first, check on
re-mortgaging your house, sell the kids, car, cat and everything else I can think of

Thanks Charles!
I already got the price, and it is really good, and I have no worries...I think!
Hey, you have a Scorpion, can you be honest and tell me what you think of the Scorpion. If you have problems with the honest part, just tell me anyway.
Sincerely Martin

Dunno - never met him. I bought my Scorpion 2nd hand so the quality spoke for itself.
