    Can't argue with that. Every tele skier needs a list of gripes, excuses perhaps, and that's easily the biggest.

    I have the 9D8s and am a big fan. Very maneuverable and predictable skis. I also have wider skis, which, given our last 5 winters and parenthood sprinkled on top, have gotten less use.
