I'd say that the '09 Tornado will be a hit next year for people who want a resort oriented all mtn ski.
I demoed the 07/08 Salomon Tornado (amongst others) this season, quite liked them and am thinking of buying them.
In what ways did the 08/09 Ti ski perform differently to the 07/08?
- stiffer flex?
- torsionally stiffer?
- more stable at speed? (a criticism by some of the 07/08 but not from my experience on 178cm)
Should I hold out for the newer model (no doubt at a higher price)?
I gather you were doing development testing/market feedback?
or are they on a limited demo/market release?
I've seen photos of them but haven't been able to find a review or blurb - is there one out there somewhere?
Thanks in advance.
