Stockli Laser SC - 72mm vs 63mm

post #1 of 15
Thread Starter 

I have a pair of LaserSC for the last few season, absolute delightful skis. Just wonder how does the current Laser SC model with 72mm waist compare with the previous version.

Any tried both the new and old model?

I thought I saw some reviews of it but can't find them now.  Hopefully someone will pop in with some info for you.

I thought the same as well, also I could not find the thread. I read somewhere the current 72mm Laser SC has 2 layers of titanal sheet which in turn makes the ski a bit stiffer than the 63mm model.

Dawcatching reviewed a 163 mm SC, think it was the new one, but not sure. There's a review at Real Skiers. And far as I know from the Stockli site, wider version still has two sheets of metal, same general construction as old, but with the grooves cut into the wood core and filled with syn, same as SX, non-FIS GS, and CX. Have not skied the new one, but would guess it's similar to old in feel, but bit slower edge to edge, bit more versatile about surfaces.

^^^^ Edit: Dawg reviewed the older 63 mm waist. But later in that thread, a review of the new 72 mm waist.

Thanks "beyond", do you mean the thread "2011 sub-80mm skis ....." by Dawg? I saw a brief review of the current 72mm model by another member in there. 

Will check the review on "Realskier"

Realskiers definately has reviews of both versions (you have to go back to the older reviews for the 63mm version).  I have the older model of the skis and am looking forward to trying the "fat" 72mm version.  I don't think anyone ever gave a bad or mediocre review to either version of the Laser SC, which remains off many testing lists because it is a cross between a SL and GS ski without the heft found in FIS skis.

Yes, I mean the review by another skier. Dawg is AWOL winning bike races, probably won't be adding much more to these threads until next fall.

Fatty, I have the Laser SC (63mm) and the Laser Cross.

Like riding an express rail -- stable, responsive, short quick turns, quick transitions from edge to edge, and fast.  Have the older Laser SC (168), but this new one is better in a variety of snow conditions. Outstanding performance with a Marker Griffon binding -- could not be happier with this purchase.  Level III experience in every way -- NorthEast skiing on hardpack, air & jumps easy and smooth; great in moguls as well at 170 length.  Fantastic ski that combined what I have in both of my older Laser SC (168) and Cross (164) models.

Looking at the 2014 catalog, it looks like the new SC has tip rocker on them...
