I've skied a couple of next year's Volkls the last few days.
The Grizzly was just a quick spin yesterday. The run I took it on was terrible chunks of ice shoved into wet sand, grooemd and then frozen together. The first run I did was on my Titan Cronuses and was almost impossible. Came back on the next run with the Grizzly, and it ws pretty easy to like that ski it really gripped well on that snow.
Next run I skied the AC-50 I really like that ski. Very lively and easy to ski. It has the same radius as the Grizzly (well, almost) but it felt more versatile. Seemed like it could even make a reasonable slalom turn. I'd like to own this ski.
Kuro - I skied last week on a very warm day. Skied slush, manky woods and some icy trails too. The thing is cheating in the woods. It's great makes it soooo easy. It was fun, but not great to rip wide open groomers on, but it need some room. Even at pretty big angles it didn't feel like the whole edge of the ski was on/in the snow. On narrower trails, it wasn't all that fun. It was like riding a pair of spoons down the slope. I skied some bumps too. Not great there, but coulda been worse. These would be fun skis to own, but even if I did I'd probably only ski the a few days a year. I think teh Rossi S7 is better for a "fun shape" ski.
Katanta - I've been on the Katana a few days now. Skied it on slush, refrozen slush and some new snow. This ski is lots of fun. Easy to ski. The rocker seems to make the tip release so easily in difficult snow. I've only used it in lessons and when skiing with my daughter, so I haven't gone fast, but it really behaves well. I think I'd like to own this ski too.
Gotama - I've heard a lot of great things about the new Goat. I skied it a littl ebit today, but don't feel liek I got to take it's full measure. The funny thing about it is that it has more visible rocker, but it feels less rockered than the Katana does. Maybe because it has more shape? Maybe it's stiffer? I don't know. I think it may be a ski that wants to go faster and carve more than the Katana does. Which is weird because if you look at the two skis you'd expect it ti be the other way around.
If I were going to have a 3 ski quiver from Volkl, it would be Racetiger SL, AC-50, and Katana (then I'd slide in a pair of S7s).
