Difference in flex patters between Full Suspension Power Plate and Marker WC Piston Plate

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

It's summer and I'm bored so I've been playing around with some old skis.
The idea behind the test is that I found the old Blizzard GS 190 27m boards where a bit too hard with a somewhat damp feel. So I got a piston plate and installed in on one pair, I had set it as a soft flex at first, but the skis became too soft. So now I've changed it to a medium/hard flex. here is what they look like

 

This is the standard FS power plate, note how the arms still allow some flex at the shovel but not much in the middle

 

This is the WC piston plate, looks like a more even pattern throughout the ski

 

These are the close ups of the plates, note where the upper line (level 0) crosses the bindings, the piston plate allows more flex

Well, I guess you want something a little stiff for hard snow day's, and softer for soft snow.

Hopefully some of the experts will chime in soon from there summer nap's.

Atomicman should have some thought's.
