July 15th, 2009, 10:35 AM
Yeah I know, i have been on the down-low and now I raise my head with news of the buy back, forgive me guys and gals..please?

So we have refined the buy back for 2010 FINA legal suits. See comment below for the press. But basically we have increased the buy back to 50% and will again be working with our dealers to facilitate this.

Why the increase from 40% to 50%? well like us you must be fed up of hearing about suits, expectations and what the hell is happening going forward with the new rules and regulations. So we thought 'Why not" why not make this a program with Teeth and substance above and beyond what anyone else is offering.

So, you buy a Nero comp swmskin, you swim fast in it, you then take it back to the dealer or to us in the new year (Time to be specified when we know the FINA rules for new suits) and we give you 50% off MSRP the like for like item.

So swim for the next 5 1/2 months for half price.

Hope this goes soe way to thanking you all fr your support and understanding through what has been a very testing few months for us all.

Any questions you know where i am.

Thanks Deano!

As a long time B7 customer, I was wondering what you have in store for 2010? Do you have anything in the manufacturing process? Any idea what FINA plans to do for 2010? I thought FINA had set some tentative standards for 2010 that involved a reduction in the % of impermeable material. I know other companies have begun manufacturing suits based on that presumption. What does B70 gave planned? If you can share ...
