I can tell you from numerous emails with Z that he is the real deal. He is Slovenian, and lives in a beautiful place. He is a technician as well as being very knowledgeable about ski construction, and the industry. His experience is way beyond the majority of posters here. I suggest finding a deeper knowledge of someone before slamming him in a public forum. On this very site, I watch videos of people who post ski tests, and by looking at the way they ski, I really can't trust their opinions. I for one appreciate Z's verbal attention to construction and technique, and commend him on trying to articulate his opinions in a second, or third language, based on extensive experience, to people who continue to put him down. Arrogant attitudes suck. The world is a big place....he comes from a continent where skiing rules, and has for longer than the US has existed. Time to chill.
Well he didn't exactly start off on the right foot, and it wasn't for the english. He presented a long post in multiple places that looked a lot like a Rossi Ad and apparently it wasn't the first time. I think he redeemed himself until he got into the comments that have offended. Whether he was the victim of trolling American girls or not I don't really care but the comments are not welcome.
I agree with you that he has a lot to add so it would be best to just apologize and move on. Those making fun of the english should cease also.
There have actually been some quite good posts about the skis, otherwise, this thread would be dead. The comments have just created a distraction, and I don't think it has anything to do with arrogance.
