 Come on guys, put down the Cristal, and stop partying with Snoop Dogg. I need some pics of next years gear. Start with the Kastle please.

The Kastle stuff changes very little in terms of cosmetics.  Still white with a bit of color at the tip.  New skis (as mentioned elsewhere) is the MX98 (no metal, slightly rockered tip), FX94 (2 sheets of .3mm titanial, slightly softer core profile with thickness at the edges, softer in the middle of the ski), MX108 (same layup as the MX98, no metal, softer core than the MX88, not rockered if I remember correctly) and the MX128 (Alaska ski, lots of tip and tail rocker).

Kastle rep still recommends the MX88 as the daily driver for most good Western skiers.  FX94 might step into that spot as well.  The new MX98 will be more forgiving and a bit more soft snow oriented, losing the race tail and a bit of the race-like power on firmer snow, so probaby not as much of a daily driver for those who want that one true 50/50 ski.

Wow, i would like to think Whiteroom is joking (it's the "civilians" who keep shops open).

The Skiershop.com team is a group of skiers dedicated to you, a fellow skier, who is equally as passionate about skiing as we are. We share the commitment to the thrill of the mountains with you, as well as snow riders that pursue them. This is the motivating force behind everything we do. So whether you are a first timer, adventure-seeking expert, a family looking for an outlet or anywhere in between, it is our mission to help you find the experience you are looking for.

That from the shop where Whiteroom works?   Before I go too far, maybe Whiteroom and Epic know each other and it is an inside joke,
since they are both from Stowe?

   Otherwise, there will be plenty of photos of new swag all over the Internut, that is what is so goofy about the gear issues.
They are old hat by the time they come in the mail or out on the newstands.

"Game, set, match"?   The "civilians" (buyers)  have the last serve.

Yes, Epic is a good friend of mine, we ski and bike together quite a bit. It was a joke.

It was a joke becuase there have been plenty of photos all over the internet for a while now. As soon as ISPO hits, photos start to get posted, TGR has had two different 'Rumors' threads going all season. New Schoolers has plenty of photos also.

The 'Buyers' at SIA are the shops. You do get the 'last serve', but personally, I don't feel like I'm competing with the customers, I'd rather feel that I am helping them love skiing more. Helping you helps me.
