I love my B-Squads. Best ski I have ever been on.
As much as I like my squads: The B4-B94 is a super one-ski quiver for most skiers. Powdeer, crud, groomed, they do it all.
I have used Rossignol skis for over 20 years and I love them.

Does everyone here have a 4 letter vocabulary? I am amazed at how much aggression is put out on this site when last I checked this site was for a bunch of winter sports lovers? Holy cow get a grip people. There are other options for choice of words. I wish everyones mom's were on this site so they could see how low their kids have fallen...shoulda stayed in school!!!

You must be so proud!!! You actually used a big word even...to bad you will never be part of a Hierarchy. Good luck in life as your job choices won't get you much further than McD's with that level of intelligence. I may not be the smartest guy in the room but I mount the skis you slide on...mmmwwwaaaahhhhhaaahhhhaaa!!!!

I loved the XXX's (especially the black and white ones). One of my all time favorite's for an all around ski. If only they were wood instead of foam.....Since then I don't think they haven't made anything that great other than the Squads. But even those were better back in the limited edition "Wow where'd you get the team skis?" days...
As mentioned by someone else a couple pages back, plenty of bad ass individuals out here on the Coast LOVE their Squad's, so they must be onto something there.
The rest of the last five pages have been pretty funny. I love the shit talking!

HAHAHAHAHA Summer has truly arrived.
jarlybart you obviously don't understand this place. The meltdown that happens each summer is just what happens here. It is what it is.
Back on topic. The team issue B-Squad 184 is the best ski I've ever owned. Wood core perfection.
Oh and I skied 3000 vert on Monday.

No you didn't... you side slipped a lot of it and bitched about how much slough was coming off for about 2000 vert..... SIt the fuck down!
Jarly.... welcome to TGR.... don't get your panties in a bundle like you did over at that other site
oh yeah. i have lots of rossi skis. they are in my table.

I don't know if this has been asked yet, but does this mean that Lib Technologies will stop making NAS?

Hey Jarl, nice video! I think what the nice boys were trying to say to you was, Shut the Fuck Up, and Sit Down.
I've never been a big Rossi fan but the team issue B3s with the same topsheet as the public B3s (the ones with the square tails), were stupid good.
Pechelman, you (PMGear) have the flexibility to turn out a pair of Brockers with different profiles, in Europe land we also see the odd pair of crazy Rossignols, they just never put it in to production. One question: did Jongybart make you laugh or snarl? I laughed, lots.i wish i never chose that user_name

I like Rossi and Dynastar....Not only do they make great skis-these companies grease the wheel of the ski industry. They give a ton to keep the ball rolling and it would be sad to see them go. If they don't continue to do well, the ski industry well suffer. You will see the effects in magazines, stores, movies, demos, events and pretty much anything to with skiing....
I can only say that in such a small industry you hope to see everyone do well because it they are not, chances are that the effects will be coming down the line to everyone including the consumer.

^^ Eh. I wonder if that pro skier that Pechelman knows so well get his cheques from PM Gear or from Rossi ?"Typically euro, french in particular, in my opinion. It's the same skiing or climbing there. They are completely unfazed by their own assholeness. Like it's normal." - srsosbso

My first pair of Rossis were the ROC Competition (1975) ... second, and last, were the Freestyle (1979.)
I don't drive a Peugeot either.

Rossignol is part of ski history. Stratos, among the first fiberglass skis were the dog (and still are for some lucky paramarkers). Similarly for ROC550/ST650, among the first foam core skis, the Rossignol Equipe, a hollow body monster DH made in SWI on through the 4S/7SK. Then there's the CUT, the B3 and forget not the Axiom.
All you spermbrain haters can suck it. Rossignol r00lz and it would suck to seem them go.
Now all that needs to happen is for Dynamic to wake the fuck up and build a 135-115-120 plank with the old VR17 graphics and get some decent marketing.Merde De Glace On the Freak When Ski

On to what this is really about....I skied 7xk's and loved them. I skied xxx's and liked them, but did not find the durability to be up to snuff, particularly when compared with explosives. With the s7, it seems Rossi is finally putting something somewhat progressive out. I have heard both bad and good about squads. They would not be my first choice pow ski, but some rave about them. I don't really want the industry to suffer, but I have not considered buying a Rossi in years, and I doubt that will change. You never know though, things could change."Have you ever seen a monk get wildly fucked by a bunch of teenage girls?" "No" "Then forget the monastery."

This is a multi-sport community, try looking around a bit before you post.
Welcome to summer.

I'm happy to be a part of the community and if i can hook a maggot up I will.
I'm glad to be part of the Pm gear crew and I don't give a damn how long or well Pechelman skis.
The skis he helped develop kick ass.
That doesn't mean I think other companies skis suck. I'ts more about finding the skis that work best for you and where/how you ski.
I skied axioms for a season and the were good but heavy.
XXX"s were good skis but didn't take hitting rocks or abuse very well.
I dug the cut 11.5's until I tied em on shrooms and the square tips freaked me out.
I don't wish to see rossi go under although if they did i don't see it as doomy and gloomy for the industry as team dirt as in any industry companies come and go.
