Let's see, huge argument between a crowd of Paddies about the relative merits of North/South. The Scottish quickly take sides and the English call for Clarification....
fkk mee im orf!
I'm not taking sides at all... ...I have been open in the past that I would quite like a Redbay - and seriously considered buying one not that long ago. I'd be equally as happy to consider spending money on an Excalibur. My only concern is that the debate is balanced and constructive.
Competition is great in any market - and I think is proof that Redbay have correctly identified a market need for all weather ribs particularly in our parts of the world where the weather is so often 'interesting'. Competitors will keep Redbay on their toes, ensure their prices are kept under control and quality high. I've no time for bolloks brand loyalty though - and just about everyone one here seems to do it whether they own a Ribeye, Ribcraft, Humber, Searider, Osprey, Redbay or Excalibur.
Somewhere back up this thread there was actually an interesting point which suggested that Excalibur were better suited to the SW Irish waters and Redbay to the N Irish / Scottish waters - anyone want to expand on that - or was it just a "peacekeeping agreement"?
