All joking aside, what is the primary difference between the Hart f17 and "the ski" Bumper?

Compare the quality/construction of your Bluehouse Skis to your Blizzards or Nordicas or your Fiero to a BMW.

I bet you'd like the F17t even better. They are a bit softer for folks under 150 pounds I beleive.

The F17t was pretty much an internal term..all will say F17 but the shorter lengths are designed for lighter skiers.

Phil

How about putting a deal together like the video forums do on projectors and stuff?.......like a members special. Get a shop that will price 'em right so you get them out on the mountain. Then we know the best deal.
There really isn't that much out there to pick from, especially if you want a little longer ski.

We feel the dealers will be a major part of our success and we will not undercut them and we want to protect them. TheSkierShop, run by our very own WhiteRoom is a great place to start. I would suggest shooting him a PM or e-mail and ask what he can get for you.

Thanks for the help. Will do that.

Phil did bring them to Stowe. I would say that the F17 'could' make it possible to ski moguls better. It's quite a ski.

I skied them first on groomers. With the big radius, the ski felt real solid, much to my surprise. I was expecting a squirl. I was skiing fast, carved (I think) turns having been on my Top Fuels the run prior.This ski could easily keep up.

In the bumps they were softer than what I am used to. Softer in the tip yet solid under foot. My line tightend and I skied much closer to the zipper line while still doing turns and keeping the tips on the snow. It's the first time that I ever skied a true bump ski and it definitely made a difference.

From there, we ducked into the woods. The snow was maybe 2 or 3" of melted powder on a nice, deep, firm base. These skied floated and turned in this almost sloppy snow and they performed. It was my first run on them and the ski could arc or turn short as needed in steep untracked woods. I didn't pay attention to anything other that how they skied, once I was on them. But I did have expectations: would it be a noodle or offer only one good turn. This is a narrow ski and it's range of performance is broad. This surpised me as did it's power. It would have been nice to take a run down Goat on them, the lines were perfect today.

Thanks Phil, but I will need to try them again, hopefully on Goat.
