I’ve had some interesting conversations at reefing events when I’ve mentioned I was in the Vertex Beta Test Group.they are going to have to change the name... vertex is going to be FOREVER synonymous with broken gear and failure.
Dont believe me? Go to any reefing event and tell someone you are going to install a vertex controller and see what kind of looks you get.
Mostly a sense of arrogance from the Apex booth people to be honest. Had a similar experience with some guys from RE.
I think Apex in particular have the market cornered but something just doesn’t ring true for me because if they are so certain Vertex will never produce a competitive product, why would they make the effort to crap on it and/or the company?
And I expected to get some snide or sarcastic remarks. Under the circumstances it’s to be expected. Just like me busting the kids balls at the Apex booth at a swap in Indy about the Trident release date.
Vertex definitely has a lot to prove. I’m hoping they defy the odds and if what I’ve been hearing comes to pass, they really will be revolutionizing the controller game.
