It was awesome. We were debating whether to buy from Amazon on Fulcrum...detailed technical description and care tips told me "this guys are more than  Big Box Store."

Within a hour they contacted me, clarified details and use environment...I felt so great after that e-mail. Wow...what an awesome company.
