I have been a nordica fan over the years, between my kastle mx98, I think i've had more nordi's in the last 10 years then any other brand, and right now, 3 out of 4 family members are on nordicas (4 out of 6 skis in the garage), 3 of them hell and back generation (nemesis, belle to belle, hellnback).

I really like how the handb does everything, but don't love the way it "feels" while doing it. I was hoping they would add the metal back in, and some minor tweaks, but it sounds like the nrgy is quite different and divisive.

I hope to try it out,  Phil, laps in the chutes at rose tomorrow? or west face laps?

cheers,
Wade
actually west face laps today along ups and downs in Granite Chief. Performance was all I could expect and more and dare I say, I didn't miss my Bonafides, although I would have liked to ski these two back to back in the same conditions. We will be at Squaw tomorrow if you want to grab them from me Wade, I will have other stuff I can ski.

Looking forward to your thoughts, Holiday.

OK,

I posted my thoughts in their own review under member reviews. Of the title of this thread, I can see where the words came from, but if you read my review, you will see that I really like this ski. This ski doesn't provide the excitement of others, but it works very well, and was my favorite of the day today.

 

Cheers,

Holiday
