Which brings up a point that works in the automoive industry. Flagship models tend to set the standard of a company as a whole, and will increase sales across the board when people are convinced of the level a company is willing to obtain.
I don't doubt for a second that the Axe is a high level marker; but can we see this new gun increasing the Axe's sales to those naysayers that believed otherwise?
