I was wondering if anyone out there had tried the new G3 or G31 replacement yet. I have heard that a few folks who had were scrambling to find the G31 instead. I was curious why that might be, so I looked at what the preliminary information of next season's changes has posted. It was then that I discovered what the big change was. It appears that the new G3 will have a much deeper sidecut and a more flared tail (108-70-96) as opposed to the (106-69-92) of the G31. Those figures are very close to the MOD and X-Scream, which may appeal to a lot of skiers out there. The new G3 should carve a fuller turn...stay in the turn longer, too. Anyhow, I really like my G30's because they ski straight fairly well with the tapered tail dimensions versus the Scream or MOD. Anyhow, I am curious to check them out. I would imagine, if they retain the stiff flex of this year's model, they might ski a lot like a MOD X Pro or 10.20. Anyhow, any info would be great!
