New Knee Brace
Posted February 14, 2002 - 09:57 AM
having used both Cti and asterisk in the past
ive found these to be the best yet
adjustable hyper extension stops
and most important of all well priced

ok let annalize this
1); so you register yesterday? [following my post about my new braces it seems]
2); you have 4 posts? ,,each given the same response to me 4 times ,,,each time trying to cast doubt on my HONEST OBJECTIVE oppinion on DonJoy braces i purchased, with my own money,,,after owning asterisk knee braces,,,,,,,,,interesting that
3); your location is foothill Ranch?,,,remind me again where ''asterisk'' is based?
4); your occupation is wait for it,,,design engineer,,,,so would it be a fair assumtion the asterisk is your baby huh
5) and your homepage,,,,, ''asterisk.com''
,,,,,,,,i guess this would explain your ranting and lack of objectivity , though you should ask your marketing department which international markets they supply
seems a CHEAP ploy to me
and in closing,,,,
''1 pair of second hand asterisk knee braces for sale,,,CHEAP''

Good show on defending yourself
I went to DJ's site and their braces look nicely built. So, you paid 399 in the UK, but what would that be here in the US approx?
My knees need all the "support" they can get and at the right price!

it would be about $600 if it was a str8 conversion
however from past experiance on imported american goods
$1 = £1
so id GUESS you might pay hmmmm $350 - $400

I forgot to ask you...Is that for a pair? I assumed it was, but wanted to be sure.
Thanks for the info!
How's the riding in the UK?

would u believe i paid nearly £800 for the pair [ouch]
so i guess you'd pay maybe $700 - $800
mind you i tried a friends first who brought one for skiiing,,
its a hell of a lot of money for something which if it works you will never be able to measure the results,, but i enjoy riding my yzf too much to have to stop thro popped knees.
i race enduro's and 3 to 4 hour long hare and hounds, GNCC type events over here, at the moment the ridding is very very wet and muddy [ as it is in the summer too ]
in fact i broke my clavical badly last august [summer time] thro hitting a deep bog/swamp patch at full speed
man u dont wanna get tangled up with the yam as u go over the bars,
im now looking at getting a ktm520 and fitting an electric start kit

I've been on this board for just under a year almost every day, not posting, just reading alot since I just switched to four strokes this past year, there is a lot of great stuff on here, but I just prefer to observe, so I was well aware of the fact that my 4 posts would show up.
I am heavily involved in another web site, and we get spam all the time, even if it is a hint of spam it gets cut, I know it's not my job here to weed out the spam, but when I saw your post it bothered me because you brought up the fact that you purchased OUR braces over there, that's the only beef I have with the whole thing, because it was not truthful. But like I said if somehow you did, that dealer is pulling some under cover import deal that we will stop if we find out who it is. We are in the process of setting all of Europe up right now and if we find out who they are, they are not going to be a part of it.
I have 100% confidence in our product, and I totally encourage people to look at all the braces out there and make their own decision based on the facts, quality, and personal preference.
If I'm wrong about my impression of you or what you were doing, I honestly appologize, if I'm right I don't, it's as simple as that.
ps I cut and paste because I type too slow
I'm done if you are

I would love to try out EITHER knee brace. Hell anything to keep my knees from blowing out. I have a bad ankle, too. God, I am a walking wreck!
