Hey everyone, thanks for all the help on the names for the new products. Most are now posted on our website, the remainder will be posted later.

We are looking for names for our new rubber so the same rules apply as the last contest. You come up with the names and you get the prizes (shoes, shirts, other stuff).

Its as hard and edges as well as anything on the market but is about 16% stickier, and about 12% more durable. Independent labs are testing right now and the results will be posted later.

Don't worry, I am also revieiwing names and previous contest threads for names and winners.

Good Luck.

Joe Garland
Sales and Marketing Manager, Mad Rock

Since this sounds like the perfect rubber, how about:

perfezionare (italian for perfect)

Would using the name "Flubber" be trademark/copyright infringement? I'd buy a pair of shoes with Flubber Rubber on them any day.

Or, if we're going the Spanish route:
"Goma" Rubber

Some other ideas:

GAS Rubber: Good And Sticky Rubber
Bomber Rubber/Bombproof Rubber
RAW Rubber: Righteous Arse Wicked Rubber
Runner Rubber

Would it be naughty to call it 5.14 Rubber and thumb your nose at 5.10?

Stickable
A cross of sticky and durable (but much better than "duricky") with some adjective properties regarding the most relevant uses.

What happened to all the original replies that were here yesterday?

How come all these posts are attributed to madrock?

What happened to madrock's reply where he told a user that his MadRock shoes wouldn't wear out so fast if he could climb harder than 5.10?

Edit -- oh, wait, I found it:

Madrock started a new thread because he was embarrased by his earlier remark where he dissed one of his customers. The old thread remains but with the title "thread moved".

What the heck is going on. Are we in the twilight zone? Oh Oh wait now's my chance to steal someone's idea from the other thread...

Anyway, how about "The Chronic Rubber"... Ya know because it's the sticky icky goodness. 8^)

How about "furious" rubber, since your company is called "MadRock" and you guys like to diss your customers?

hosh.


PS, My madRock shoes fell apart in a matter of weeks as well. And it wasn't the footwork. I've got Montrails that lasted, 5.10's that are still lasting, after over a year, and Evolves that are holding strong. My MadRocks simply fell apart after a few weeks of use...

Sales and Marketing Manager, Mad Rock

Joe: here is a suggestion to correct this situation:

1. Go back to the other thread and apologize for the remark to your customer about his skill level.
2. Open a new thread inviting people to give feedback on Mad Rock products, good and bad. Be willing to reply to legitimate concerns, including shoes that wear out quickly.

I have never bought Mad Rock shoes, but I love my Mad Pad, and I'm sure that you have other happy customers. If you want to develop good customer relations (as seems to be the goal of the naming contests), one of the most effective approaches is to open a clear, honest, transparent dialog with customers -- including those who have legitimate complaints.

Best wishes,
Dan

How about tribology rubber - tribology is the study of friction.

Thanks for the great start, we will be reviewing it in about two weeks to finalize the name.
