As for buying skis without demoing - I'm not accepting that as lame.
Maybe the skis you bought without demoing were lame but it's completely possible to buy a ski without demoing and hit a home run. Why else do we have reviews?

I seen reviews of all mountain skis posted by people who've barely been off groomers, and only ski marginal least coast resorts taken seriously
I've seen reviews liisting DV as the #1 resort in America
I've seen reviews where K2 Recons got gold medals.
I've seen the Renault Alliance get Car of the Year.
Take reviews for what you pay for them.
Can you get a decent ski without demoing - yes. Can you buy a pice of crap the same way - yup. How to minimize the potential for a POC - Demo. Not rocket science.
