08-09 Stockli Stormrider XXL vs 10-11 version

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

Any changes to the Stormrider XXL between the red 08-09 version and last years model?  Specs look the same but one shop owner told me the newer ones are better.

Hope they don't mess with it.  Skied mine last weekend and amongst all the hype over early rise, rocker and phatter is better, it still rocks as a great all-round ski.

Well, the XXL is gone for the 2011/12 year, replaced by the Stormrider 78 so they messed with it. I don't feel any difference between the red XXL and the brown/tan/green logo XXL.

Don't think that 2mm will make much difference but..........

 

Funny thing - My XXL is one of the very first, gloss top sheet pre-production model (made for the trade show circuit).  The top now looks like swiss cheese having been mounted with Freerides, Dukes and now a Vist TT plate over the past 4 years.  Last week I had the opportunity to buy a red XXL from a friend of a friend, but turned it down as it was a 178cm (same as mine) and I'm looking for a 184.  I might have to go back, cap in hand.
