Here's what I'd like to see supplementing the ski reviews: info that allows us to tell when a model is really (on the inside) the same as last year's, versus when it's been changed.
We've all learned that sometimes a manufacturer changes the name and look of a ski but leaves its construction the same. Other times they change the ski substantially, but the look and name stay the same.
For example, the deep green Zen-patterned Head Monster 82's of 2009 are the same ski as the original bright green pop-art 82's of 2007. Then for model year 2010 when Head detuned their older brother, the Monster 88's, that internal change was made clear with a complete change to the design and name (Peak 88). Judging from the outside the 82 seemed changed as well, but inside it actually remained the good ole super-damp crud-buster of '07.
I'm cognizant that knowing when there's a change in construction is not as good as knowing when there's a change in performance, which is what really counts. But knowing when there ISN'T a change can be very useful.
For example, if you liked the 2011 Blitzen XB-99's that you demo'ed, knowing that the construction hasn't been changed gives you the confidence to buy the 2010's on eBay.
And knowing that the construction of the 2011 Schnelitzer is the same as it was for the 2010 model that Dawg praised allows you to go to a shop and buy the 2011 with assurance.
I follow the year-to-year changes in the few models of skis that interest me by assiduous reading of the reviews, but for most readers that's not practical.
The best place for this information would probably be in the the "Alpine Skis" portion Epic's "GEAR, RESORTS & MORE" tab.
Adding this info would be a lot of work for our various volunteers, but if there is a template that has a slot for "what's changed on the inside" or "construction changed Y/N?", we'd gradually accumulate the data.
It would also be helpful to have images-- sometimes close-up detail shots. E.g., it's hard to tell the '08 Elan 888 from the 2009. And when considering an e-Bay purchase, the seller often doesn't know the model year.
Currently such a compendium of ski images can be found at realskiers.com. Over the years they've built up an aggregation of pdf's of the major lines of skis, so one can, for example, look back and see what the 2005 Gotama looked like and what the dimensions are. But there's no info about the insides.
Thinking even bigger, I suppose that with unlimited resources we'd all love to have an ISDb (internet ski database), the ski equivalent of film's authoritative and essential IMDb. Yikes!
