Here's my dilemma -
Skied the 2010/2011 mantras last season and liked them a lot. Should i pickup a pair of 2010/2011's on sale now for this season, or wait until december when i head west to try out the 2012s with the bit of rocker. From what i can tell from the few reviews out there, the 2012's are starting to get decent reviews. Does any one have experience yet w/ the 2012s or advice?
The 2012 is a better ski and worth the difference. Get it now, before your trip. If you like the 2011 Mantra, you will love the 2012.
