**razie**

i understand that what tehy do is apply the same force to teh tips and tails and measure deflection. since it's a longer ski, there is more leverage, so i would expect it to deflect more at the same force, no?

i'm not good enough with math/physics to calculate precisely, but if the tip is 5% longer it should deflect 5% more? so 37*1.05 = 38.8, but this is 38 so just sightly stiffer?

i don't actually know the details....

I'm equally ignorant of the exact process razie!
