I just purchased a almost brand new Tigershark 175, for my Eastern Hill of 300 ft vertical. I have owned Volkls for 30 years and never seen such a huge thickness at the middle of the ski on a Volkl. The constructions on the websites say wood with one metal layer. The ski reminds me of the original Elan Cap Skis and it sure looks like a cap ski to me!
BTW how do I adjust the bindings for my boot? I already no how to set foreword pressure but the center line is missing and I am told the binding moves for the boot size but I cannot figure out how its done.
