• I've received emails and PM's asking me about "Group Buys" and promotions.

    A Group Buy here on SnoWestOnline.com would be a situation where a normal member (non vendor or mfg) personally collects orders from other members. That member then uses those orders to negotiate a better price with the Vendor/Mfg for HIS/HER "Group" of buyers.

    Here is an example of a viable "Group Buy"


    A promotion that has the words "Group Buy" in the title is still a promotion, and from the rules that were handed down to me by Harris Publications is that non-advertisers cannot run promotions or open sales programs on the forums outside of the swapmeet.

    If a members wants to become a group buy manager, maintain a thread and collect the funds and negotiate a group buy... as a member, you are welcome to do that as long as you are not attached to the business of the vendor or Mfg.

    If you are a vendor/MFG and you want to offer an EXCLUSIVE "SnoWestOnline ONLY" promotion that is exclusive to snowest readers, please contact me and you'll be able to put it up in the Polaris forums.

    Also, before any vendors/mfgs get all "riled up" over this know that the moderators are strictly volunteers and do not receive a dime from any advertising $$ spent on this site.

    As ALWAYS, since DAY ONE of me becoming a moderator, I have pioneered, supported and encouraged vendors and mfgs in getting the word out to our readers with "New Product Announcements.

    Have a great season.

    From this point on, all vendors/mfg's promoting Pre-Season tiered sales programs, in the Polaris Forums, that are not paid advertisers will be appropriately moved to the swapmeet section of the forums.

Looking for some opinions/insight into which one I should order. Currently have a '21 850 Pro 155 2.75 and was thinking of going to a Khaos for something a bit more fun to ride. I did see a video where the guy commentating stated that the Matryx Pro Slash was 100 times more playful than the '21 Pro so maybe that would be an option also. Not sure how true this would be ? Just want something more fun to ride but not too wild. I'm probably 225-230 lbs with gear and about 6'2 if that has any bearing on things. Thanks for any help.

The Matryx RMK anything is more playful than a stock Axys RMK, for sure.

I rode the boosted Khaos Slash 155 and the boosted Slash RMK 165.
I rode them in different conditions and a slightly different setting, so I can't actually compare apples to apples.
But, the Khaos is definitely more playful!
