I had a chance to demo the x power 810 ti in December on hard pack and I even gave it a second chance off-piste ( the same afternoon). I always wonder when I see a ski 174 cm with a 20 meter turn radius ..., but I try to stay open minded. So - long turn was there , edge hold was there, the ski was kinda smooth, short turn - below average. Off piste performance ( flotation , crud busting) -- very difficult to talk about , may be it was me , may be the ski I don't know ( but still this ski is in the all mountain category and some kind of off piste performance is expected) So my final impression , well , ..... this was ..... just a ski ..... like many, many others -- did I remember it with anything special -- I don't think so .
Dude your credibility is near zero after your rantings about Head in that other thread. I pretty much agree with you though on this particular ski.
Speaking of Head. Couldn't we make a Rally like ski with a little more beef for those of us who weigh more than 150 pounds? Maybe even up the radius a bit? No, they make a wider Turd and call it the Titan. Wtf?
(John Goodman voice in Big Lebowski) Has the whole world gone crazy??? Am I the only one who gives a sh**?
At least Blizzard tries to make that ripper. Head just "calls up the lab" and looks for some geeks to whip out some electronics and come up with something to get it done.
(Actually I think KERS might be ok. But really, enough with the delicate finesse skis huh?)
