this thread to get some opinions on the 101 vs the RR. My notes are on page 2.
I guess "give 'em the bird" isn't just a marketing slogan, it's a brand management strategy, too.
One of the stores I stopped in yesterday had the new 81 @ ~$20, the 101 had been marked up to ~$30 and the Baby Saz was near $40.
One reason I never bought the WT 101 rye as often as I could have is price. In Indiana, even when regular WT 101 can be found on sale sometimes for around $18, the rye right next to it would allways be $25+ (never any sale). As a matter of fact, just the other day I passes up a fully stocked shelf of WT 101 rye. I didn't buy a single one, but for $5 less, I was very happy to take home some Rittenhouse BIB.
Picked up 2 more 101s tonight.They had 6-8 more on the shelf. Any Dayton,OH area SBers interested, pm me.
