Let me also add that over the years I have owned several pairs of K2s, staring with the original threes, fives, and 710s. I stioll have a pair of 208 GS Races, which are fun as hell to cruise on. I currently ski a pair of 193 Merlin 6s fitted with a VIST plate...little rocket ships.
However, and aside from the bitching and moaning at powdermag.com, K2 has a reputation of building fragile skis. I have heard this from two different shop owners I know, who, BTW, carry the product.
Plus, I'm still pissed that they dumped Phil and Steve. And I bet they're pissed about losing Bode. Who dumped whom there?
Hey Rusty...what does K2 recommend for bevel angles on my Merlins? I read somewhere 1 and 1; is that right? Your thoghts on a steeper edge bevel please.
