I know everybody thinks I`m Mr Cynical but dont think the price has anything to do with the cost of production.... Its to do with what the market will stand... There is no way on earth a carbon boom can be worth £800+ but if sailors are willing to pay it then it will be asked !!! But if carbon booms last so long manufacturers will go out of business..... Planned obselesence and all that....
Plus .... My knew Amex Carbon isnt as stiff (or heavy) as my 5 year old one... Perhaps they will start breaking more now ????
