damp and dull are 2 different things; but yes, I agree!  again, its not a ski intended for uber SR turns.

This is true, but we all often personalize language. I often wonder if my SO and I even speak English to each other.smile.gif

Apparently my wife speaks perfectly lucid English but I listen in another language. This is what I have been told.

Dull in the sense of boring for carving comparing to my xti88 or almost all of my others skis... and yes, I prefer tighter turn so it may have some  influence; the 178 being a 20 m radius... but I had more fun on hardpack with my Kendo who was around 22 m radius so...But at the same time, I remember having fun making tights turns in crud and in new snow (around 1 feet)...

I still really love my mx88 for everything else (new snow,crud, steep, trees, moguls)!

BTW, at the end of the season, I brought them to the shop for tuning and the guy told me that the base bevel was a lot more than 1° at the base, especially underfoot, and that he had to do extra work to do a decent job there...Could it be another factor? We will see next season!
