Looks v. MarkersI've had Volkls with both Motion system and Looks, and also tried the PCOS system. As of 3 years ago, I thought the motion system sucked, and would have recommended Looks to anyone. This year I tried the AT PCOS system, and found it was really good -- light years ahead of the Motion system circa 2002.
In sum, I wouldn't necessarily pay extra for the system, but I'm not avoiding it at all. On the flip side, 3 years ago I would have paid extra for the Looks, but now I would not.
So, I now have a pair of Superspeeds with the AT PCOS system, and I'm selling my AX3s with the Looks. BTW: I sort of missed the Motion system on groomers with the AX3s.
If you want to see the history of the Volkls I've skied a lot in the last few years, here it is:
G30s, Look Pivot 8s
G31s, Markers (flat)
Vertigo Motions (G3s), Marker 1200ti/Motion
AX3s, Look Pivot 10
724 Pros, Marker/Motion Piston (AT PCOS, I think)
Superspeed, AT PCOS
