How can one tell what year a ski was made? On cars, we used to be able to look at the tail light lens much of the time. I haven't seen any tail lights on skis... but perhaps I missed it! Serial number might help but no VIN number.

Also- I see some Volants hanging around that look like they are made of wood in stead of their metal design. What are these? They look pretty rinky-dink. Who bought Volant?

As posted on another thread, when one company buys another the 'bought' company usually goes down-hill. This is sad but often true, but not always.

As you fellow musicians know... when CBS bought Fender a couple of years later Fender quality went downhill for quite some time.

Often buy-outs are for the purpose of getting rid of one's competition.
