I have a pair of original Javelins that I skied on the last day my local slip and slide ( Buck Hill) was open
I had torn my miniscus in my knee 3 months earlier and I wanted to give it a bit of a test.
Bad idea !
I could not get those 200cm to turn !
So after the first run (306 ft). I drove home and grabed a pair of 175cm Rossi`s to see if that would work ?
It was better, but the snow was bad ( the snow was so bad I thought I had a klister wax on my ski`s ! ).
The rental shop there used to have a pair of hart Honeycomb Comps that were 215 cm. Instructors got free rentals back when I worked there so a bunch of friends and I took them out one spring day late season and were trying heli's on them off the lift pole transitions between Crossroads and Milk Run near the bottom.
