Yeah, I'm not the one that claimed insider knowledge of ski manufacturers using the same molds to make skis that are the exact same with different top sheets. I said they aren't the same, he said you can't go by the published numbers and must examine the skis together (and shut the f**k up if you don't have the experience of building skis). I have both skis. They Are. NOT. the. SAME. It's not an 'opinion' it is demonstrably true.
You said you have lots of skis that ski great after 200 ski days, you said 15 pairs. Do that math for me. 15 X 200. (3000 ski days? that's 30 100 day seasons)
Math, I guess, is harder than LYING on the internet.
This is a funny calculation and I've never done the math this way. Yes, I have been on some Fischers for more then 200 days during the past 20 years and yes I have owned around 15 pairs , may be more, may be less and yes the ski will die after 200 days whatever name hides under the top sheet - Kastle,Head,Elan, Fischer..... Even after 200 days the ski can have some value , but this value will have little to do with performance characteristics.
