If you have the skills to appreciate good hard snow carving skis, both long radius and short radius for different speeds, you might have a hard time finding what you want in the future, unless the pendulum starts swinging the other way.
It seems that rocker is all the rage, and early rise is unavoidable. We have all-mountain rocker, on-piste rocker, even early rise on race skis to make it easier for racers to push the limit without being punished for skiing beyond their level of control and getting a DNF.
One day the edge on my Carving skis will be gone and I will have to find new skis. No doubt you are in the same boat.
I have tried the early rise skis, and quite frankly, when it comes to precise continuous carving, they are not in the same league as a traditional full-camber pair of skis. No doubt about it, if you know how to use a traditional full cambered stiff torsionally rigid ski, there is nothing better for hard snow/ice.
However, it seems most customers either don't know how to use such a ski or need to ski past their limit of control without incurring the wrath of ULR in order to win a race or just not disgrace themselves in public. The market has bowed to the demand, and of all the new skis listed in the 2014 ski reviews at realskiers.com only three companies, out of the skis reviewed, even made full-camber skis: Kæstle, Head and Ski Logic, and they only had a couple of models each that did not include some form or rocker or early rise or front rocker.
We (that is skiers who love high performance skiing) need to start showing the manufactures that there is still a demand for such skis before they all disappear!
If you are lucky enough to always be skiing in 6" or more of fresh snow, please disregard this post, maybe it doesn't matter that much to you, but then again maybe it does; I haven't had much opportunity to compare full-camber to early rise in anything but firm conditions. If it does make a difference, other than making it easier, i.e. if there is any downside to early rise in soft snow, please chime in.
