Should I go forward with trying to sell a product to keep the rope off the boards, racks and bimini?
Last year, several of us who ride together got irritated throughout the summer when the rope was repeatedly getting caught in the board racks, the boards, or rubbing on the bimini top. After spending nearly 6 months working on prototypes, I finally have made a product that works well and that I really like. The question is, if we start making it and marketing it to the wakeboarding market in general, will anyone buy it? The basic product consists of an aluminum clamp which attaches to the tow ball on the boat, and a 72-inch long collapsible carbon fiber rod which rotates and supports the rope (a home made quick compilation of video and pix of prototype in use is at: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qL74m...=youtube_gdata ). Estimate retail price at a little under $200. So what do you think? Is it marketable to enough people to be worth trying to sell? What if any other advice would you offer? Any input appreciated, as we are at the point where we either have to commit to this in the next several days, or let it go. Thanks. Rob
