Its always difficlut to swap ski brands. Not only is it hard to deside on a new brand but its also hard to let go of the old one. And then you end up thinking what if... I guess the guys at the WC are in the same situation so nothing unique here. Anyway, first let me share with you a video of one of my SL runs last year. It was a very careful run on a flat and smooth slope in perfect racing conditions. It was one of my first competitions on the new 2011 model of the flat deck D2 racing ski. On my second run pushed much harder and was about 2 sec faster. Here:
Anyway, you guys probably remember our discussions last year conserning the two different varitions of the SL ski, the D2 and the "Flat Deck D2". I whent for the FD D2 because thats what everyone here is using. Funnily enough if you look at Atomics web page under Race FIS you will not find the D2 model at all. The SL skis for adults are without the D2. Still, the stores carry both models. Anybody tested the different varitaions lately? I felt like the FD D2 was very soft.
Anybody tuned the bases on their SL skis? If you did, what base bevel did you put on them and how did they change? I suspect there is not much base bevel stock. Any thaughts?
