Back and this is on. I will ship into the US later this week from CH. G4N will hit me up with the list and I will drop you a PP link in the next 3-4 days. Note here that Don and AK have dibs on the 2 pairs of V's I have on-hand (verified) and I will need to check if I have a few protos left (sorry guys). As for CD1-3 I only have a few left here.....so last chance and please drop G4N a PM ASAP so I can get the total skis to ship. Price will come down for all is we get 3+ more.
Thank you all for the support!

The price is right for a unique ski.
Geo when you said Don and AK, you meant AR right (ARpowhound)?

- really? You can't guess it?
A full review on the CD2's are coming once exams are polished, but as a daily driver they were great, delivered by Gregor in person at GVA was sweet too. Fun, playful and forgiving but with enough meat to put down some speed with stability. Powder is pure sex and tails have enough stiffness to pull my ass up (88kg plus pack), which is the primary thing I hated about the JJ's. The rockered nose engages on edge and they held up great after 2 weeks of shitkicking. Edges are super sharp from the factory, so remember to detune. Get on it!

I've been looking at these all morning. They are so sexy. Clean and HIGH quality.
The Flex is SO perfect. Weight feels spot on. This may be the perfect spat replacement.

Thanks for all the kind comments on the quality of the skis! We chose that factory for a reason...
Quick tuning tips: All the models are ground flat with minimal structure from the factory and the edges are sharp, so setting a base bevel to your preference before your first ski day is highly recommended. I generally go with a 1/1 tune and then detune the tips and tails. V1: 304mm from tail, 386mm from nose, V2 253mm from tail, 347mm from nose, V3 293mm from tail, 350mm from nose. All measured along the base of the ski. The Countdown V is a different story, but you all seem to know your spats pretty well, so just go with whatever you've done to them.
If there are any other Q's, just ask, I'll do my best to answer them...simen (at) downskis.com DOWN SKIS

S/P inserts for FKS & Plums, pretty much the everything-everywhere sketchy snow tool.
Review to follow.
Also, the one pair that the group-buyer bailed out on lasted about 48 hours at my house before a buddy fondled them and bought them on the spot. The shapes and construction on these things is so dialed.No, the real point is, I don't give a damn
