I just bought a pair of 2012 iPeak 78 Pro FLR SW skis to replace (or complement, we'll see how I'll like them here in Québec) my 2007 iXRC1200
Just out of curiosity, I wonder what the structural differences are between these 2 skis.
Both have Liquidmetal, are Sandwich construction and have Railflex bindings (though not exactly the same).
The iPeak has de FLR elastomer things in the tip, iXRC mentions WorldCup Sandwich.
I saw that both skis have an F-index indicated on the tail, where the iPeak has a higher number than the XRC. Anybody know what this means ?
My girlfriend is on first generation Supershape Magnums and I didn't find the number on her skis.
I'm interested to know how what the different layers are in the 2 skis (iPeak 78 Pro vs. iXRC1200).
I know both have metal layers, but how many and do they have the same thickness (for example: in Fischers progressor line I think some models have thicker layers of metal in them).
Finally: how would the structure of the iPeak 78 Pro compare to today's REV Pro's (I know they don't have the same geometry) ?.
Just trying to develop my ski knowledge....
