Small Survey: I need your help

Hi,
Iím a senior at California state university Long Beach and I'm working on developing a new product. My team and I are trying to come up with a solution for a fairly common problem amongst skiers who ride both standard downhill and also enjoy park riding. Binding location is the issue we are dealing with. Park riders like their bindings in the center of their skis, while standard downhill and powder riders like their bindings about three inches back from center. Our product will eliminate the need for two pairs of skis and instead employ a system to move the binding easily while on the mountain. Iím doing a small survey to establish a market for this product. Any input is greatly appreciated. You can post a reply for the survey or email me at spanishflea10@netscape.net

Thank You!




1) What level skier would you consider yourself? Level 1-5, 5 being advanced.



2) What type of skiing do you most frequently enjoy? (Trail, Park, Big Mountain, etc.)



3) How many pairs of downhill skis do you own?



4) Do you have a specialized pair of park/trick skis?



5) Is binding location on your park skis important to you?



6) Would you be interested in a system that can move your binding location (centered on the ski or back of the ski) quickly with no tools thus eliminating the need for two pairs of skis?

i was wrong, the line bindings could switch from ski to ski but not placement,
i would never switch the placement on my skis. full symmetry is the bomb
