ski? Anyone had any experience or knowledge on this stick?
"Cloud hidden, whereabouts unknown!"
you could compare demensions and construction with the XL and XT to see how it fits into the line.
Id like to update this long dormant thread. Can anyone provide any more recent info on the Stormrider L. There appears to be some very good pricing recently on this model. Dont know what to make of it. Seems to be the only stormrider model without metal-which is a good or bad thing depending on your prospective. Im familiar with the XVL and the rotors, but there dont seem to be many comments or info on this model
In my case, thinking it might be pretty good East coast hard pack front sider for cruising with the wife and kids but with a little stockli traditional stability at speed for those 2 or three runs when you get without the groms.
Just bought a pair on closeout after demoing them. Nice-performing moderate midfat that lines up almost exactly with K2 Recons as far as dimensions. A bit firmer and a better carver than the K2s, with good versatility. Probably very good for what you want, provided you're less than 200 lbs.
The Stormrider L was a ski in Stockli's line that is built as a price point model, by another company (Head, Fischer, Elan?), with Stockli spec'd materials, in someone else's factory. Actually, wood core with a layer of metal - mid 70's waist width. Only shares the name with other Stormriders, performance is very middle of the road, but not a bad ski, but not a true expert level, hand built ski. Often found in higher end rental fleets, or at closeout.
kbuzz, just to confuse matters, there are some older XL's, Crosses, and AT's on sale new at Denver-the-closeout-darkside for decent prices right now. The XL in a shorter length would fit your mission, as would one of the Cross 24's (yellow ones, not Pros).
