Quoted for the truth.

 

long term savings yet the short term lust remains leading to short term spending with more long term savings thus the savings increases geometrically

Absoluterly! Heck....with that kinda savings, one could easily argue that they actually cost less.

 

As in......"Honey, there was a sale at the shoe store!.......look how much money I just saved us"

My wife has tons of bargains she saved us money on, hanging in the closet with the tags still on.

Maybe I should now throw in some flyrod comparisons...to add some insignificant info to the confusion..:eeklol.  Nice review and pics Alex....just the right stuff mentioned, and thanks Phil for mentioning the bindings used.

Just a little follow-up review:  after a couple of resort days +  a couple of BC skinning days, I'm somewhat surprised to discover that I like the SR 95s more for the BC (second season/Spring i.e. wide open corn bowls of variable density).  While heavy, they're fine for day hikes - in fact they weigh exactly the same as my Head Rev 85 Pros, which were supposed to be my go-to BC skis ...... not now!  Today was the full range: early morning firm, transitioning all the way to deep, almost rotten glop (it was 68 F at the car when I headed for home).  Once they get up to speed (not that fast, really) they are rock steady, smooth as silk and surprisingly nimble (for 183 cm). The 174 probably would have been a little better for  my weight, but I'm not complaining.

Sierra Jim - I'm a long time admirer , and envious of both your knowledge and wisdom . Based in part on your video review of the Stockli Laser SX , I am getting a pair of the 2014/2015 model , which Stockli advises me has some modifications from the current model . I have a pair of the Y77s that I really enjoy . Thanks .

Wow!!  Either you've taken anticipation to a whole new level,  NTTAWWT, or StartHouse has already received their 2014-15 stockli shipment ?!?!?!

A whole new level! no, I left the sticks there the last day of the squaw season, and I had a job up in tahoe...so I picked them up on the way home.

 

These were purchased last year....i'm waiting on another couple pairs as well for the 2014-15 shipment....

Don't know much about the SR95, but as a Canadian, I will say that Northern CA wines are far more "refined" than anything in B.C. or even Newfoundland.

 

Enjoy.

I had the chance to ski both the 2015 Stormrider 95 and the 2013 Bonafide at Hintertux after the one metre dump a couple of weeks ago. The Stormrider is nice, but I would have to say that it really did not "wow" me; I still prefer the Bonafide. If the Stormrider is a Range Rover, the Bonafide is a Toyota Landcruiser.

 

By the way, any comparisons or contrasts for the 2015 Cochise versus the Bonafide? Are they still very different, or do the tweaks to the Cochise bring them closer to the Bonafide, albeit with a wider waist? Thanks.
