If they want to do research and figure out what's best for them and ask for help in their pro shop they can (which is where we agree is the right choice). I know if I owned a shop and I found out you were steering some guy to a cheaper skate because he didn't need an $800 skate and had cash in hand I'd fire you.
Yes sir, beer leaguers don't need top-end anything and house league players don't need top-end anything. If they want to buy them and tell me so, why would I deny that? I'll explain that for their playing level, that amount of skate/stick/protection is not a necessity and if they understand that but want it, then I'll take their money. I never said no beer leaguer
have top-end anything...
I sell what the customers need and if they want something else, that's absolutely fine. My job is to show and explain the reasons why, so simply put, I don't need you to tell me how to do my job because if you were my manager, I'd quit and work for someone else with more integrity
