Tested extensively by Rolf Meyer, Level III PSIA Instructor Okemo Mountain. USSA Level 1 coach. Head Coach Guilford, CT HS Ski Team. His observations after 20 runs: It stiffened the middle of the ski and provided better edge hold on firm snow. He said the added weight was only noticeable on the lift with feet dangling. He also skied the identical skis (Rossi S3) with Barons and preferred the performance of the MFD although that might be attributed to a slightly different mounting position.
