Hey out there. I know that towards the end of the season, some of us actually had the opportunity to try some of the 2002 gear. Of that gear, I am interested in what you folks thought of some of the really fat (90-mm wasited) freeride/park sticks coming out next year. I only got to try the Salomon Pocket Rocket (185 length) and was amazed at the crud/pow preformance, but was less than impressed at how a board like that handles on the harder snow. Did nayone else have anything to add about the groomed performance of the super-fats? I guess that in the deeper snow regions that such characteristics are a moot point, but I see so many folks jumping to the PR and other boards as their all-mtn machines (including the park). I wonder if I missed the boat on how to run those skis on the groomers, or if others are disregarding physics and just buying into the hype. So, what do you think?
