I know the wider skis made today are different from the more narrow "All Mountain" skis of five years ago BUT are the other models much different? K2 made an Axis X and XT 5 years ago with identical dimension to some of their best sellers (Crossfire etc.) in today's lineup. Head has been making CHIP skis for several years with identical dimensions. Volkl has made the same basic carving ski for at least 5 years and they all seem closely kin to the model that preceded the 5 star. Atomic, Fischer, Elan and others seem to still be selling the same GS and SL race skis that were selling 5 years ago. If the dimensions are the same and the materials are the same and even the descriptions in their marketing materials are the same then how much difference can there be?
