can you trust the reviews?
I did not want to post this, but i had to after reading the first review.
Please don't forget that the reviews are subjective even if the testers are trying to be objective. There are many factors which influence the tester's run such as: snow, terrain, ski tune, binding ramp, skier weight, technique etc. That said, the review i have read seemed...subjective. It was the review of the highest scoring ski in the Men's Groomers High Perf. SL category. It got a higher mark for Energy. Hmm... The testers probably had a very different experience with the ski than i did. I felt that the ski was "heavy" for an SL w/ a "lack of nimbleness". It was still quick, though... This is another review
of the ski. Very different from what the guys from the mag said. For them, the '05 ski was the winner. If you did not know, the winner had been unchanged for 4 seasons now, except for the plate (and possibly binding). The ski itself (and sidecut i believe) are the same.
One more thing. Did you notice that the ski came last in the Women's SL category? Is it posible for a ski to win in the men's category and lose in the women's? I thought that the men said that it was very easy to turn etc. Their explanation is good for a laugh. Most women testers do not ski anything longer than 158? LOL. Then, they said that light weight women really liked the ski. That's exactly the opposite of what i had experienced. Can you trust the reviews?
