crgildart, I disagree fat skis are going to fade in favor to narrower skis. There is nothing to suggest that. Not only are skis wider, but they are being made in many new alternative sidecut, camber and flex options.
I just don't see us going back to Knissel Blue Stars.
I mean no disrespect, but I am amused by the fact that many people who, just one or two seasons ago were vociferous in their promotion of the skinny-waisted, radical side cut Metrons are now extolling the virtues of wide waisted, longer-radius fatties.
