I get what you are saying but I believe the day is coming that if you want a new “starfire” type sled you will need to snowcheck it. There may always be back outs but may not get color or options you want. I keep my previous sled until new one comes so I’m not worried about having a sled to ride. That being said my latest sc delivery was first week of December. So I haven’t missed out on any riding.i am kind of choked because my sled never showed until Jan 10. So my dealer phones and asks why I have not snochecked yet. And then says he is down on spring orders. Really. Be nice if they would give me fair Ching for my 2021.Not a chance. Understand about the times we are in but I have been loyal to poo for along time and they just haven't done enough to make me pre order ever again.
