This was my demo list from mid-July.
To give you an idea of the snow quality, conditions got progressively worse over the weekend and I spent a lot of time being very careful not to hit rocks with someone else’s skis.
** Kastle MX84 (176)
* Kastle FX95 HP (181)
** Kastle MX89 (180)
** ID One Freeride 89 (176)
* Fischer Pro MTN 95 (178)
** Head World Cup Rebels iSpeed (180)
** Head World Cup Rebels iRace (175)
* Head Supershape Rally (177)
Head ProtoStellar (177) ... lightweight, side country ski
Icelantic Pioneer (182)
** Dynastar Speed Zone 12ti (181)
Fischer Night Stick (180) ... center-mounted, park ski
* Elan Amphibio 88Xti (176)
Icelantic Nomad (181)
** Dynastar Cham 97 (178)
Hardly a bad pair in that lot. I’d be more than happy to own any of the skis with one star. Those with two stars were the standouts on each day.
The ID One was the surprise packet for the weekend.
Somehow I need to find myself a pair of Cham 97 2.0. I feel like I can do anything on that ski, although I'd go one size longer.
For me the ski of the year is the Kastle MX84 ... I'm just an MX fan.
