Volkl is pretty tight about information on next years race skis. A Frenchman posted on this site about a month ago. He had all the info and pics of the Volkl line with the exception of the race versions.
Here in the (NJ/PA) area, you couldn't find any of the Volkl race versions after December. It sounds like the shortages are regional however because when we went to Stowe in April, they had a ton of them.
Rumors abounded too... Volkl had stopped production early to make tennis rackets or they only cut a limited number of wood cores..
I'm supprised that you actually got to demo a P-50. The woman who was running the shop at Stowe (alleged), that she didn't even know about the P-50.............. perhaps because they had a surplus (no ENRG-Y rails though) of them.
How did you like them?<FONT size="1">
