Volkl V-Werks CODE UVO - how stiff?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 

Dears,

I found a good deal with a pair of 176 cm Volkl V-Werks CODE UVO (the 2015/2016 model) but I wonder how stiff they are compared to the standard CODE L. Anybody had the opportunity of testing them both? I am concerned that the more advanced construction on the Werks could make them too stiff for me to carve.

I am 158 lb advanced skier, mostly cruising (moderate to moderate/high speed) on piste with an occasional ventures just off the side of groomed path.

 

Thanks for any help you could provide.

 

Take care,

BB

English correction. "Dears" might be applied to your grandchildren, but not anyone else. "Dudes", "Guys", "Folks", and others might be used equivalently, but generally we just launch into what we want to say here. Using Dears, Dearie, etc. is a good way to tick people off instantly. Dear Mr. Clark as the introduction to a written letter is fine. Don't use it otherwise.

For your future reference. I know the ins and outs of a language you didn't grow up with is tricky.

Point taken, will stay away from salutation in this context. However you sure realize that in other English speaking communities "dudes", "guys" and "folks" are equally ticking people off :-)

 

Take care,

BB

Well, it's true what you say, Sib, but I thought it was charming. :D

 

Yes, the most difficult aspect of any language is the idiom — that which people use. Prepositions are the hard, usually; that's idiomatic, too.

Well, you wouldn't want to call Sib a dude, 'cause she's not. "Guys" would be ok, though I'm not sure why.

Lacking feedback I pulled the trigger. Will let you know as soon as we get first snow in Europe. Take care, BB
