hey folks . I was just talking with a shop owner about vist plates and was asked what would be my intended use of the skis ? I like GS type skis but love lift just as much . Now, the shop owner advised me to never put a metal type race plate on any ski if not racing . He loves vist but thinks they stiffen a ski up way to much . His advice was maybe a plastic plate like the tyrolia 13mm which would allow a GS ski to still flex yet give me some lift . I would like to go higher than 13mm and maybe track down a pair of the older Supercarve plates at 23mm . Not sure if that plate would make any differnce on my stockli Cross Pros ( 72 under foot ) or slap them on my new Stockli GS skis when they come out . I know I want a plate but dont want one that will stiffen the ski up .
