Default Track safety gear - OK to post feeler for interest?

I'm trying out a safety harness similar to the Hutchens device. If I like it I may set myself up to sell them. Without being a vendor, is it OK to post to gauge interest in something like that? It's a helmet harness system that looks perfect for HPDE events. At $125 bucks it looks to be affordable protection for your neck and head.

Mods, Brain, Ok to post up about interest in something like this?

It's similar to Safety Solutions "hutchens" device. It's a strap system that's a whole lot simpler and more comfortable than the Hans. Where the Hutchens runs over $300 this one should sell for around $125. Seems like a good deal for people concerned with extra protection but unwilling to spring for the big buck systems like Hans, Hutchens, RCB, White, Wright, etc. The one I'm looking at marketing to the HPDE crowd has been in use for boat racing for 20 years.
