Skied Volkls for 30 years from the P9 210, coming down in size over the years but staying with Volkls.It has always been a exciting ski for me and I love high speed carving. About 4 years ago at 62, I was working my butt off on a pair of 188 Volkl Vertigo and Volkl G4s. I was talked into a pair of K2 Recon Apache 181. Didn't ski very often over the next 3 years. It is very unusual for me to loose my skiing passion. I was in the shop one day last year talking about Volkls and the shop had a new Kendo 177 drilled wrong. They only wanted $300 so I bought it. That was last year and skiing came alive again for me. I wound up joining the racing team and buying 2 pairs of updated used skis this year. I went out West this year after a 3 year hiatus and skied everywhere I could over the last two years. I realized I had lost my passion because of the K2 ski. There are skiers who are right for this ski but it wasn't me. I am sure they are many other skis in the Kendo category that would have done the same for my passion but I 66 I was living the skiing dream again. Like a poster said to me 60 is the new 40 if you are a skier!
