Much appreciated. Squaretail post is certainly the most clear and useful. Many threads were read, and it was wearing to find any real substance
Perhaps that nothing substantial or very definitive was found compliments Squaretails post, "only the most skilled Gotama fans can feel it. It's very minimal".
Even bigger thanks Spindrift!! For those of us who are not Gotama experts, the White model will ski like the coming 08/09 model. Heres what he says about next years 08/09 model:
Confirmed: The 08/09 does indeed have vertical sidewall geometry.
Confirmed: The core layup changes a little bit too. We're using a beefier wood laminate in the middle of the ski.
Both changes were made to improve bomber-ness, and we don't think either has a large effect on performance. The ski should ski the same.http:http://www.tetongravity.com/for...php?t=117810//
