Did hell freeze over? Ski reviews are up and not one post?????? - Page 2

Says the Hell and Back has foam... I don't think so.

I think they have a centre stringer of foam - 'i-Core'?. That's why they feel so light.

(unless you count the BRidge which did earn an astounding 176)

I was going to say it but Mfa81 beat me to it.  The Vagabond and ElCapo are Nordica.  But you knew that, and probably need a cup of coffee.

i think the score thing is bad because carver skis are rated on how well they float, and powder skis on how well they carve on the same 0 to 5, so this ends up dragging down the final score

Are the Nordica skis made out of the same factory as Blizzard?

Only posted that to finally crack 200 posts. Personal huge milestone and 5 years in the making with my tentative forum toe dipping to date.
