    Dammit!! The salesman I've gone through for my major purchases over the past few years has moved on to bigger and better things. Dammit again!!

    He's cut me some really sweet deals over the years. It had gotten to the point that He was the first and only call I had to make. Can any of you help me out. Do any you know a really kick ass sale dude/chick you could turn me on to? Dammit.. dam dam...DAM!

    Finding another sales rep to deal with and build a relationship with is tough.

    It used to be that you had sales folks calling and wanting to build that relationship. With the advent of the internet, a LOT of that has gone by the wayside... not all, but a LOT.

    I can name a lot of names of vendors I would recommend, and even quite a few I would recommend you stay the hell away from... but that's not exactly a smart thing to do in this case.

    I would strongly encourage you to shop the web, and call the companies in your local region and even some of the national companies that have a good reputation.

    If you don't like the vibe you get with one rep, but like the price, I'd maybe call em' back a bit later and see if you can get another rep on the phone to see if it's the company, or the rep, that you don't click with.

    I'd actually consider calling AEA direct and talk with them. Wes's staff is not a huge corporate environment. It's a pretty small shop of folks who really care about their company and their products. Maybe they can point you to a dealer/distributor who fits you.

    If nothing else, PM me, and I'll give you some names of folks I've dealt with... realizing that you may or may not like dealing with the same personalities.

    Good luck!
