    I have no real input to your case, but. Just out of curiosity, did you run all three pairs with the same type/model of binding? Mount point?

    I'm curious about how the definition of average stiffness is established. Is that something that has changed/evolved over the years as more skis have been tested, or has it always been a fixed value?
