Ehe, I know
I've changed back to...Matteo, but still think that Nobody was funnier
P.S. sorry for not answering earlier, I lost my pointers to topics (read my memory)
As for Voelkl, I owe 2 pair of old P9 205cm RS super, and after a decadde, ae somewhat still stiff.
South of the Alps (Dolomites and the like) people mostly ski groomed runs, and usually snow conditions, from what I read here, are more similar to East coast ice than everything else, hence Voelkl reputation for holding ice helped the company sales.
I thought the Superspeed might be a good choice for a 50-50 ski but, I see that it's being presented as a variation of a GS ski (BTW "GS"
off the shelf skis are still the most solt here).
Will have to demo to see.
Another thing I like in Voelkl is their durability, or their characteristic to deliver
similar performance season after season.
Some of my friends here noticed that off-the-shelf Rossis, just to name one brand, had the tendency to perform very well the first season, and then suffered a noticeable drop in "performances" right from the second season.
