I had almost the same experience. I got the Superglass with the red/white cosmetics in 1970/71 and on my first run I couldn't believe how smooth they were compared to my previous Hart's.
If I remember correctly (which is always an issue at my age), the Superglass used a layer of actual rubber between the base and the core. It made for a much more quiet, damp ride and I loved that. That was one very sweet ski.
Nice find, Si.
