    Those are obviously completely different...cant you see the tiny changes and "improved" logo. Yeah i'm with you...thats gotta be against some kind of copyright law.

    I would still try the pads, they're proabbly good. I just think they could havedone waaay better with a name and logo than what they did.

    So basically, somebody from PoorBoy wanted to keep PoorBoy alive, but probably could only do it under a new name with a new logo, so that's exactly what they did. Don't really like the name, logo's okay.

    when i read this thread the first thing that came to mind was when derek mentioned how poor boy was gonna have a comeback soon, guess the pot head with the shitty memory is the only one to remember this.
    the peace logo is pretty cool i think but i wouldn't switch from astro deck cause i just love the beaker pad.

    not a huge fan of the name or logo either, but all the pads come with a circle you can use to replace the logo, just super glue it down instead of using the logo, unfortunately they merged the cobra 2 with the launch, adding the features i didnt like about the launch to the cobra, so i probably wont be going back to it unless they change it back to the original cobra 2 style

    I like the logo, and designs. Name is gay though. I guess I'm biased along with Sam, cause I liked Poorboy as well.

    So after poorboy goes out of business a few former employees start their own traction commpany using poorboy's designs just with a new name and logo. Seems like a rip-off to me. Poorboy still owns the copyrights to these designs, so if I were they, i'd sue
