From what I have read and heard, the 98 is one sweet ride.

Uncle L- I was really hoping to meet you last week!  The new 98 has no metal and a slight rocker tip, rounded tail (not tt) prior itirations are more serious, this one has some fun factor to it.

 The new 98 is damn sweet, I will be posting a review soon.

Someone should have warned me before I opened this bumped thread.  I had a mouth full of coffee and spewed it on my screen......

I was trying to hang there as long as I could to meet both you and Phil and ski with Bushwacker again (on more or less my home turf this time) but I just couldn't pull it off.  Stuff at home I had to attend to.

Glad you guys got to meet a few of the jokesters I get to hang with out there, and it looks like everybody had a blast. 

WAY BIGGER season for me next year after a shortened one this year.  I hope it will make it easier to cross paths (and I could use a good guide to put me on the right stuff at "the boat"........know anybody ?).

Ridiculous!

A medium to soft fat ski will maneuver better than a narrower ski of the same flex. Wider means it can float at lower speeds, float allows for easier turning in untracked snow.

edit: DOH! I didn't notice how old this thread is.

VA- Yes, I like my Nomads with 111 underfoot for soft loose snow in the trees but I see many of others on 78 (or less) ski it as well or much better!  Ski what you like... but glad we agree

Movie quote that didn't need much tweaking 

Finndog: Things change in my ski needs. They always do, it's one of the things of nature. Most people are afraid of changing their view of ski gear, but if you look at it as something you can always count on, then it can be a comfort

It took 3+  years, but, Kastle's have finally settled a point of discussion between Phil and Finn. Hmmm, makes sense to me!

TC you nailed it! I like to explore and experiment with new shapes and designs, its part of the enjoyment for me.

 Hmmm, isn't this something that Fox would attack as Flip Flopping? :)

Of course I do respect people who have an open enough mind to change it when information creates the need to.  As compared to the "My mind is made up, don't confuse me with facts."  approach.

you are assuming that closed minds are a bad thing? :)  a closed mind is at peace- it is confident and assured. it does not struggle or worry.....

a close mind also does not expand or gain knowledge. it does not improve..... without struggle there is no growth... following other mindlessly is also being close minded......squirrel........
