Igneous

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Hello,
I never bought or skied on skis made by the so called independent manufacturers.
I will be in Jackson Hole,so I would love to try the Igneous skis.
Any opinion on them?,how do they compare to a Volkl Katana?
Cheers

I have an older pair of Iggy Fat GS that I loved until I finally wore them out, which took a long time.  They were very sturdy and well made.  You've probably looked on the website and noticed that none of their regular shapes are quite like the Katana, but IME you can talk to them and get the flex and, if you go custom, the shape that you want.  So, if you know what you want (like something Katana-ish) they'll make it and it will be a really nice ski.  

 

So give 'em a call and talk with them about your upcoming visit.  Very cool folks.  

 

ETA: I don't think they do metal lay ups like on a Katana, but if you want a stiff, damp ski they will definitely make one for you.

Seconded; recently retired a pair that  provided 8 years of outstanding performance for what they were intended. Unsurpassed quality. Not familiar enough with Katanas to compare, but I would again agree with Bob - they will accommodate your needs.

Apparently Igneous went out of business.  Of course, you might find some floating around for sale.

Really? I guess someone should tell Igneous, and the people they made ski's for this season that they are no longer in business.

Heh...I was to understand that igneous stopped making skis a few years ago, I guess the doors and presses were reopened. good for them.

Oops.  I was passing on what someone else told me.  Still getting the hang of helping out with gear questions.
