Dont flame me until you read the complete post.
We all know Volkl has always built the best skis. Back in the day you really had to be technically proficient but today the skis are for a wide assortment of consumers ability.
I am looking for a easy to ski slalom racing to return to racing after 15 years and I am 66 years young. I thought I found the perfect choice of detuned slalom racing ski in a Volkl Racetiger SC UVO. I found very good test reports but I could not find the ski. I called Volkl USA and they said there was no such ski. I went on the Volkl International website and found the ski along with a RC model. It turns out the Ractiger SC and RC UVO are only distributed in Europe. So I call a European warehouse who ships to the USA and had the ski in stock but he said he could not ship it to the USA as he was restricted by Volkl and could not sell the ski to me. All these years of buying what we all know are the best skis and I am blocked out. Please all of you tell the Volkl website you want the Racetiger SC UVO brought to America! You will make me very happy.
Thanks for your help and if anyone knows where I can buy the ski in a 170 please let me know! Or suggest a great easy to ski slalom racer for eastern short hills racing.
