I have seen, but not skied the new PK. If it's stiffer, I liiiikkkkkkeeeee!
I have a newer Marker SC on a pair of Rossignol Viper 10.2's. Quite stiff, and I still notice the SC. But it IS more dramatic on my T3 Powers, and Olin Selkirks, which are softer.
I have to demo all the time without my cants. It's a PITA, but I can still tell a lot about the skis.
BTW, a dusting of snow on some western peaks by Vail Pass this afternoon...
yes, I said S * N * O W. It'll melt right away, but it sure is purty!
The news from Volant is interesting. I hope the "time off" will help their bottom line. If not, well, there may bome volants available for le$$, then I'll ski on Heads, or Atomic, or something. Would really suck if they go out of business.
Guess the faithful will hang in there, eh?
