I'm interested to know if anyone has skied both of the above and could give me a comparison.
Both are wood core, sidewall skis with tip and tail rocker. The Sollie is 91mm at the waist and the Rossi is 98mm. That narrower waist is what interests me. I've demoed the S3 three times and I certainly like it, but the tip and (especially) the tail rocker have a bit too much splay for my liking, it's a bit wide for my purposes, and it's a bit of a noodle. The 2012 seems like a narrower S3, and I'm hoping it's a narrower and stiffer S3, but I've not tried it.
