My beloved RX 8s partially delaminated during a recent ski trip and whilst they were being repaired, I borrowed a pair of new Stormrider 78s.
I really liked the Stormrider and am now considering them as a replacement for the RX8s. They carve fantastically well, bash through crud, are pretty quick edge to edge (I had the 166s - turn radius 15.9) and have better flotation than my Fishers. Perhaps a bit more of a handful in bumps, though, but this may be as much to do with my technique. There seem to be very few reviews around of the ski; the only one I have seen is the one by the Ski Canada magazine, which rated them highly though commented that they were 'a bucking bronco' in the bumps. Would others agree?
The same magazine gives a slightly higher score to the Kastle's but I have not tried these.
Any feedback from people who have tried both would be appreciated, as would any comments on the Ski Canada reviews.
