The ski skis like a million bucks, even when its reverse cambered its heads and tails above any other sl ski i have been on, and i have a pair of race stock SLX T's that i havent been on yet, which may or may not do it. If the replacement pair decambers then ill just keep getting new skis until they get it right. Next time im out on them im going to see how many runs it takes to decamber them. As far as salomon goes, i want to see how their newest race stock 3V's handle. If i like them i may end up on those eventually (providing the reps price is right) - which it should be cuz they dont have a large following in this area. The Demo 3V pilot is a totally different ski from the 3V. It's not a race ski by any means. It's probably more of a ski that would compete with the fischer sceno and the volkl T50*****.
