I bought a pair of wider (for me - Sultan 85s - seemingly mid for everyone else) skis in March last year. Many of the reviews, including realskiers, made claims that you could "rip" these things on groomers. My definition of rip is as close to and including boot out as possible. When I attempted this, my inside ski got caught up for lack of a better term. It's been 6 months so I don't completely remember the sensation but I do remember a distinct edge angle limit on carving. I've never had this happen on 66mm Fischer SCs or 76mm Metrons with wide fronts.
I wasn't focussing on groomers when making this purchase, but was surprised by the edge angle limit given all the reviews I've readand terms like "rip" tossed around with abandon. Is this a technique issue - if so, offer advice - or is this a general negative of wide skis. Realskiers has a 101mm ski now as ski of the year claiming they're good on groomers as well as the obvious.
