    Do these have any pop at the end of a loaded carve, or did you have to decide to end the turn "whenever" yourself (with no pop at all) like a Bonafide?

    The "holy grail" metal version consists of the three German-made 2012-2014 years (samurai/green dragon/metallic green), which only differ by topsheets.

    Think 99% of skis say either 3.6x9.5mm or 4.1x9.5mm on the topsheet. I've seen kids skis say 3.6x7.5mm and some thin metal Kastles say 4.1x7.5mm.
