I posted this elsewhere - but this is probably a more appropriate area.
How about a Fishing community? Potential to reach a very wide user base.

One piece rods aren't practical to post, but multi-piece fly rods and travel rods are no problem. Other essentials - reels, line, lures, etc. are small and easy to post. There is also a wide range of electronice - GPS, Sounders, EPIRBs/PLBs, Marine Radios, etc. etc. etc. Tackle storage systems. Apparel. Scents. Tools. The list goes on and on (and on...) The pic. is a part of my lure collection - just my bream lures! #Tacklejunkiesoftheworldunite!

Thanks for the suggestion. Fishing is something that is being considered under the Outdoors Community, which is launching shortly. But it could also be it's own stand-alone community as there isn't a ton of crossover with backpacking, tenkara rods being the notable exception.

Thats great to hear Danny. There is some crossover between fishing and general outdoors, so seems a natural place to start. If fishing gear takes off I guess it could then be considered for it's own community.

There are plenty of fly rods that break up into several pieces that can be put in or strapped to a backpack. Don't limit the scope to tenkara rods.

Would there be a separation between things like take-down rods and small reels made for backpacking, and their larger counterparts that are solid. For example keeping the take-downs with Outdoors and linking it with backpacking/hiking.

That's a good point @Heefty. Tenkara rods may be the most popular not, but they certainly aren't the only style that could be taken backpacking.

That's what I'm thinking. There is going to be some products that are right in the middle and have cross-over appeal, but the idea would be to keep the lighter, portable rods in Outdoors and Ultralight, and the more conventional gear in a Fishing Community (that is, of course, if we decide to start one sometime down the road).

Lots of guys here (Tassie) walk for miles (and miles and miles) carrying fly fishing gear (most fly rods are3 or 4 piece) or light spin gear.

Would you supply things like tackle and similar items or would it be just the rods and reels available?

I'd like to see tackle included. Here in Aus. decent small (trout or bream size) lures often retail for $15 - #30 each. Large (ie: game fishing) lures can cost a lot more. Braided line and flurocarbon leader are also high-cost items that are small and light and cheap to post. For lure tragics like me who use a lot of hard body lures the cost of our tackle can easilly equal the cost of several good rods and reels., and where as rods and reels usually last many years, lures, line and leaders need replacing frequently.

Steel skillets?
I'm interested in getting a ~10" and ~12" skillet. By steel, I mean no cast iron nor stainless steel, just regular plain old 'carbon' steel. I'm looking for something nominally 3mm thick so, maybe a Darto out of Argentina or something from Europe from Mauviel, Mafter, or DeBuyer. Amazon doesn't offer much and Ebay is way expensive during the current crisis. What options is everyone using to get the better steel skillets at reasonable pricing? I'm thinking for of a French skillet style versus a fry pan but, I'm open to other suggestions. TIA, Sid

What if there is a Massdrop community for bikes?
In my experience, good bicycles are a very active niche market akin to headphones and keyboards. People try out new components, accessories, apparel and even new bikes constantly. And it's a market where tons of new innovations come out every year. There are a lot of competitor shopping websites but Massdrop should consider its edge. Post your bike if you'd like to support the idea. And join the vote here: https://www.massdrop.com/vote/New-Communities-Poll-1

How about a furniture community?
I personally would love to see a community based on furniture. Modern, country, diy, esc. Love modern furniture myself and always seem to be looking for pieces to buy like a desk for my computer or a dresser or a nice t.v. stand and so on. Wondering if anyone else would like that.

Pulse Noire arrived in a bag?
Some drop items are available on Amazon.ca, I assume they are just buying and reselling. I ordered pulse noire and to my surprise they arrived in a single bag. They are covered in scuff marks and there is a couple permanent visible marks from the top of the keys which are quite annoying. I looked for unboxings and I found that standard pulse and XDA canvas are coming in a nice box with trays. However I did find one single review of pulse noire on YouTube and it was in a bag... Is this expected? Did I buy some kind of counterfeit product? Additionally there are lines and pressure marks and quite a few imperfections from the manufacturing process. Confirmed from other sources that this many imperfections would not be expected with a gmk set or other high-end product, I'm certainly not delivered in a single bag like they came the Bulk Barn. What's the deal? Should I return it to Amazon? Any input is greatly appreciated.
