Just a quick run through along with some highlights.
Conditions..Conditions were almost too good. I would have preferred some more...err.. any ice to try these ski on. I didn't get to test everything the first day.
Raider: Other than graphics, no change from last year.
Interceptor: Raider version of the Xplorer,
Crossfire: Waist got bumped to 74mm, this ski was the surprise of the testing (so far)
Fujas: 5/15 rocker for 09. A blast to ski.
Joe: Mojo94 with no metal. Bleach, didn't ski well at all felt dead
Peak 82: Monster 82 w/o metal. Fun ski, but not a Monster any more, it was domesticated. Huge upgrade in graphics over Monster Series though
Magnum 7.6: Smooth, light and lively
Magnum 8.1: Went with the wideride binding, very nice ski
Cross 74: For a $499.00 ski, performed fantastic for the money
P01: Rocker with a very low tip profile. Fun ski, especially in the bumps
Grizzly: The switch works, prefer the switch in Dynamic mode.
AC50: No change
AC30: Now 80 underfoot with a Wideride binding
Manta: What else do I need to say
Gotama: Super low tip profile a la P01 but camberless.
HotRod 84 FLAT: Much better ski without the XBi binding system. Skis like a real ski
Swell: Interesting concept. Wrong graphics for the market of the ski.
