Thread Starter 
I got my new Enforcers mounted yesterday and as I was ironing in the first coat of wax I looked arounf and realized I may have a problem too.

Everyday skis:
Volkl Gotama 183
Nordica Supercharger Enforcer 177
Nordica Supercharger Ignition 177
Salomon Pocket Rocket 185
Nordica Top Fuel 170
Dynastar Contact 11 172
Volkl Superspeed 175

Race Stockers:
Dynastar Omeglass 64 165
Rossi 9x 183

And I still want a pair of 172 VIST X-Frees

i don't see it as a problem...I see it as a solution!


Nice selection. I am interested in how you like the Ignitions and Enforcers. I see you neglected to talk about your boot quiver

Let's not go into that. The Agressors were sold out, so I'll only have 130s and 150s.

Do you have a quiver of poles to match the skis. I hear, matching poles to skis is the new rage!

You want the Vist's...You NEED the Vist's...You can't live without the Vist's

And don't forget the Kneissl, you need them too.

Naw, you have a ways to go to have a real problem. The key is to sell some of these before you ever ski on them.

I'm not convinced it is a problem, to determine this we need photo documentation. Photo your skis and post the pics here so we can monitor the situation.

Yeah, this thread is useless without pictures

Just wondering if you rode the Enforcers before your purchase. I'm not sure if you've read my review, but I'm wondering what your thoughts are on the tail design of the Enforcer (the Blower has it too).

Enforcers

I have four days on my 185 cm Enforcers...mostly hard early season man made at Copper with a bit of fresh thrown in today.
I am not a big fan of turned up tails...if you see me going backwards call the patrol cuz something bad is about to happen. Having said that I have not noticed any negative effect of the tail during my four days (other than the giant rooster tail... which actually helps keeps tailgaters at arms length).
What I have noticed is an extremely versatile and super fun ski. It changes turn shape very easily, has good bite on the hard snow and is super stable at speed. I need to test it in many more conditions before making a summary judgement but, so far...sweet!

I didn't get to try them last year. I did try the Ignitions though and agree with you about them although I thought they were a little too soft for bumps.

The only problem I see is that you dont have the blowers.

I've only ever seen the Vist skis at one shop, A Racer's Edge in Breckinridge.

I've tried to find info on the skis online, but Vist never seemed to put the skis on their website (unless I am completely blind).

Saw the Vist's in a review from last year..$1,600.00/Pr? too rich for my blood. $1,600.00 will buy me 4-5 set-ups
post #16 of 23
Phil, it's $1600 for the ski/binding/speedlock plate...a BARGAIN.

I skiied the VIST (and reviewed it) last year. In all honesty, it was one of the best skis I'ver ever been on. $1600 is mindnumbingly expensive IMHO but that is MSRP, not street price, and MSRP on the Nordica Mach 3 is $1400, same as Dynastar Contact 11, Rossi Mut-X and others. The VIST is $200 better. it's like a race stock all mountain ski. It came out of the wrapper with a tune you'd pay $200 for. It gripped better than any ski short of my racestock skis.

If you want a pair check www.skiershop.com
post #18 of 23
has anyone managed to find the skis anywhere on the Vist website?

and Phil, the ones I saw had a psuedo Mondrian design on the topsheet...would look nice next to your various The Ski models, i'd think!

Here's the quiver minus the PR's which are getting tuned. (and the VIST's that I don't own....yet)

I like those short ones in the background, epic!

Don't you know your supposed to take the picture with the skis next to each other, not back-to-back? It looks like a bigger quiver that way...

I'm not sure they would have fit that way!

I love how the Vist skis available at SkiersShop.com (http://skiershop.com/itemdetails.cfm...ogId=47&id=485) have the company's website printed on the topsheet.

yet if you visit the Vist website, nowhere (that I can find) do they showcase their skis.

http://www.vist.it/html/en/index.php


I have found this to be a phenomenon with some smaller, especially European, ski companies. They have the product out there, but they don't seem to be too concerned about getting people aware of it (prime example, try finding information about the new Kastle skis or Oldenburg skis online...other than pictures of them at tradeshows).

Yeah, I guess we know that the $1600 MSRP isn't going into marketing.
