While I agree with you for the most part, the average customer likley isnt going to poke around the forums looking for feedback on an item, when (if its available) they might go over to amazon, they read the reviews there, get convineced to buy it, and by then they forgot about this place, and the sale was lost to easy to find and easy to read reviews right on the product page.
If there was a bunch of 1 stars, i wouldnt buy, but a bunch of 5 and I may buy before looking deeper about it. I know my feedback could help people.
For instance if i had read something like “Thick leather, great craftsmanship, should last for years and years!” under the Decender holder as a user review (not manufacturer product pitches) , I would have bought one months ago, but it wasnt until I saw a video of the battle of the elders of a dude wearing one that I could gather more info on it and ultimatly cased the sale.
Or I just bought a CLYW hoodie and would have really liked to know that its kinda tight around the arm pits. I wear L shirt, got XL hoodie, but might have wanted to get an XXL if I had known.
Just saying, I kow you personally dont like them, but I really think they could help YYE out.
Maybe just for the accessories and such and not for all the yoyos tho, that may get too subjective to be of real help…
