Help : difference between volkl racetiger sl wc and sl speedwall?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hi,
Can anyone help me figuring out the difference between these 2 skis? One of them is the volkl racetiger sl speedwall uvo 2014, the other is a racetiger sl world cup (year?). But what's the difference between the WC and the Speedwall? I tried the speedwall today and really enjoyed it, have an opportunity to buy the WCs but im not sure what the difference is....





Thanks in advance!

I believe the WC is their Race Stock FIS ski, while the Speedwall is made to a different and more friendly spec.

FYI, the ones on top are more than just a couple years old. I'm guesstimating 2009. So, possibly have six seasons on them already. Make sure they are not too beat before you buy. Caveat emptor.

^^^^ This. The top ones are pre-UVO, and from the graphics look to be maybe 5 years old. Probably most of the edges are gone. Speedwalls on the bottom are the rec racing version of the FIS design. Far as I know, very similar to identical specs, more lengths. But FIS version has much stiffer Marker WC Plate. Unless you're using these on a Masters or above course, you'll prefer the Speedwall version with the UVO pictured at the bottom. That's the one that's been getting raves.
