    @Piet, I like what you are working towards and I would like to support your efforts but the 'PietSkiet' leaves a very sour taste in my mouth that guides me to avoid the brand all-together. You have huge potential and I wish you success.

    Agree on this point. pblaauw. Its incredible to believe a honest review if the reviewer is being sponsored by the manufacturer. Because a person cant be objective and talk against your sponsor. That will be amazingly silly to do. It would be like walking into a Toyota Dealership looking at the Hilux and asking the sales person does he think the Ford Ranger or VW Amarok is maybe a better buy.

    You have issue with the name being too closely associated to someone else here on the forum?

    Do tell us what the “bad” pietskiet did on a forum that could make an adult take so much offense.

    I couldn’t find anything on the search and I’m morbidly curious.

    There's a right wing AWB member known as Piet "Skiet" Rudolph. PietSkiet6.5 was not aware of this when he chose the name for this channel and brand.

    That’s a pretty serious oversight

    Honestly I was also not aware of it when I heard the trouble surrounding it. I just knew one pietskiet - the fun one that used to be on here for a while. I Googled it when I saw a video PietSkiet6.5 made on the topic and only then learned of this issue. Keep in mind his name is Pieter, and he shoots on his channel, so Piet wat skiet kinda made sense.

    Also bear in mind Pietskiet is an Afrikaans colloquialism

    Things change.

    Like it or not it’s a bad name choice and a total lack of knowledge on recent history isn’t really an excuse

    Which is why he's considering a name change on his brand.
