    Yeah the FX94 has metal, but the sheets are half as thick as on the FX95HP in order to reduce weight. I'd actually like to get a pair of 176 for a Spring booting ski, had a pair but sold them a...

    FX95HP is not something you want to tour on. Great inbounds ski though. I've never handled the regular FX95. They ski short due to the rocker.

    Very nice! With those metal topsheets, you can have holes close together.

    Is the rust thin enough to ski or Scotchbrite off? Or is a stonegrind needed? The rust probably set the low price.

    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.
