Sorry you spent so much time with the review. I am all set on skis now. The Bonafide purchase is it for me this year. I was really just commenting on the fact that "ski safe" most likely hadn't skiied on the Patron. And I was right. I agree his passion is a good thing however he shouldn't be giving advice about skis he hasn't skiied. He recommended a ski to me in one of my threads and then I found out he had never skiied it. I am all for being passionate about skiing but I don't think you should be giving advice unless you have skiied it. Yes I did buy the Bonafide without demoing it but from what I have read about it I am pretty sure I'll love it. However you won't see me talking it up or giving advice about it until I ski on it. And not just one or two days. I'll need a few days on it before I would feel comfortable recommending it.
Good choice. I think you will be happy with those skis. Be sure to report back once the season starts as to how you like them.
