Hi Mr. Spindrift,
I don’t mean to hijack this thread but…….can you or your boys comment on the differences between the ’05/'06 and ’06/'07 version of the Mantra? I skied a friend’s ’05 Mantra last year and loved it. I just purchased the ’06 version and the Volkl website says the ’06 is stiffer than the ’05. A lack of snow in CA has kept me from finding out if that is marketing hype or a true description. Any thoughts?
squaretail is a Volkl guy who should know.
As reported above, my kid has skied both model years (different days & conditions though) and said he did not notice any meaningful difference in how it skied one year to the next - just loves the ski.
There you have it...
