3 total people responded to your thread there.

One said (paraphrasing) - "I have Silver Bullets - the are work horses."

One said - "Cayenne is one of the best beds out there. Old Silver Bullet is better than new"

And one gave you some very specific opinions on what they like or don't like about the different beds, things to look out for, and told you they had had them side by side in their salon and what customers preferred.

11 total posts in the thread. 5 of them are from you, giving more information/details/questions that are NOT here, helping to flesh out your original post. And 3 people who responded - with basically 1 of those three giving you a lot of specifics.


On THIS site - you asked the same question.

TWO responders so far to your original question, rather than the 3 you had there.

ONE gave their opinion and back up to why they feel that way.

ONE asked for more information (that was ME) - which you provided - and haven't followed back up yet.

To this - in just 3 days after you originally posted, including a weekend -- you have come back, to take the time to lay down a pretty scathing beat down of why you prefer another "business", why this "business" is not helpful and doesn't fit your needs, why you personally have been a 3x more "loyal customer" at the other business ----- and then ask for more help.


To put it in perspective - when I just read what you wrote - it felt like a customer walking into your salon who you don't really know or recognize and saying in front of a lobby full of people:

"I'd like your best bed - and I'd like it right now - and I'd like it at an extreme discount. I NORMALLY tan at your competitor up the street. I like their salon a lot better. I spend my money there and I feel like it is well spent. To be honest, your place is a bit of a dump in my opinion. But I'm in a hurry and don't have time to drive to their salon today so I guess I'll tan at your crappy place. And I understand that person sitting on the bench is already waiting to tan on your best bed, but I don't feel like waiting, so jump me in line in front of them right now. And here is $5 for your $20 bed - I don't feel like paying more".

"Now - are you going to put me in that bed right now for $5 or not?!?!"
yeah he did sound like a whiner... and about tan today they are a waste of time at least to me, here, sure there's fighting or rather debate on topic, over there they just run theirs mouths and who needs that...like I said unfulfilled lives of advanced aged , medicare/medicaid /SSI/ social security beneficiaries with nothing better to do or can do physically since their activities of daily living (adl) is most likely impair, e.g. can't go to the bathroom themselves.

And then see what responses - if any - you get.
You are so right I am I sorry. This should have been worded in a better way...the way you did it was much better! The fact it was the weekend should have come to mind but I am running out of time on this decision as I need it within the week.

I asked in both forums as I thought this way I would hopefully get the answers I wanted from possibly a different pool of people and experts. You are most certanitly not one of the few I am referring to who fill post with constant doom and gloom and who is right and everyone else is wrong. Come on now we all no who these people are although I do find that stuff amusing it can often take a quality post and turn it in to a total disater.

When you asked my bed selection I was over joyed. You know your stuff as an equipment reseller and your opion I value. I also Value Roberts opinion but he has stayed out of this as he is in the running as one of the people I may be buying from.

You gave me a detailed answered that took some time and for that I thank you more than you can know. I read both forums all the time and continue to learn from others because of it.

There are many on here who wish the lurkers would get involved but they most likely don't because like almost all forums...this one is no different there are always a few who like to dominant yet give very little useful info. You most certanitly are not one of those people.

Thank you for you time dedicated to helping others.

So how is calling someone a whiner not bullying? Not to mention calling everyone on Tan today senoir citizens who need help going to the bathroom.

I don't post on here often but have been around almost 20 years in this business but when you asked for help finding an hp bed for an 8x8 room I thought I would try and help you in a post that once again got totally out of control. I tried to tell you what worked me and can work for you.

Best of luck with your new addition but I will be sure to keep my whinny opion to myself. If it was not for the people on this forum and their advice I would have probably been out of business years ago.

My advice to you is to maybe not call people whinners as I am pretty sure they won't be offering any further expert advice.

Re: Silver Bullet VS Cayenne

Most peeps go back and forth between the 2 sites under different handles. So, you most likely are dealing w/the same peeps, unknowingly.

Just FYI.
