Reading other threads started me thinking about how a ski looks. I never paid any attention to the looks of a ski and my first Kendo, 2013 is not any style I would ever pick especially at 67! But skiing it is a dream and the looks never bothered me.
My next ski was the TigerShark another winner from Volkl especially on small hills. Not my colors but pretty red and black.
Next came the Blizzard R power with a beautiful top sheet!
The Volkl Code Came next, just a OK look and the top sheet does not look to be to durable but that's OK because I take care of my equipment.
Then came the Blizzard Magnum 8.0 which is not a design I would ever pick.
And finally on my doorstop last night the "Extremely beautiful top sheet" of the Fisher Progressor 900. Will it live up to its pretty looks down to the embedded diamond and lovely finish. I expect it to be like my volkls, inspiring extreme confidence at high speed with tight edge angles, good rebound and do well in the crud and junk. Or will it be just another pretty face?
Now for the new base grind, dominator prep wax and of course I have to "Smudge" my skis for the upcoming season!
It sure is pretty and matches my coat! Is it going to bleed that green side edge on the snow like my old Volkls did?
