    Your descriptions should give a better idea of stiffness.

    You should make the two narrower pow skis in longer lengths.

    You should show a profile of the ski from the side showing the shape of the camber/rocker.

    Your site is a little clumsy to get around, specifically looking at different skis. Forget the flashy transitions and list the dimensions on the page with all the skis so you can compare easier.

    They look nice though, just somepointers

    What is the skiing heritage of China and why should I support any ski maker producing skis there? They undercut core builders and then sell their skis for similar prices. If they cost ME one third the cost of a comparable US ski I might be tempted, but probably not. If you value years of tradition, buy from a European or US maker. I am not knocking the design or quality of any Chinese skis, just the job outsourcing

    If you're making skis in china, I wouldn't brag about getting materials from the US. Thats just an extra wasteful trip across the ocean. The only part of my Moments that came from outside the country is the edges, and they're working on that. I'm pretty stoked to be riding skis that didn't require super-freighters to cross the ocean twice, just so i could rip some pow.

    Anyway, I like your wood veneers and graphics, and like that you're starting with fat, rockered skis right off the bat. Good luck.

    Well, when the Chinese medal in the freestyle comp at the Olympics, we can call them a nation of core skiers. Until then, I'll buy mine from fat, beer swilling Americans and Ultra Super Duper Extreme Euros

    those are awesome looking skis!

    With all the talk about China vs US construction I think the transparancy you guys have used in explaining the decison (especially the tele tips cross post) is very coomendable.

    anyway, awesome skis, interested to hear how the perform

    In reference to the earlier question about Mazz's involvement with Scottybob; until just a few weeks ago Scottybob and Skilogik were still one company, Scotty doing customs and the China side doing higher production and specific models.

    Scotty is still alive and well (http://www.scottybob.com/skiworks/) creating custom telemark and alpine skis by hand one pair at a time.

    And he doesn't even need obscure language to describe where his factory is .

    For those interested in a domestic well-made product, consider looking Scotty up.

    Or buy another pair of China skis.

    For the record I'm unaffiliated with either company, just a big fan of Scotty's.

    I think you should offer them to people at TGR to register for "demo boards". Say a few hundred up front with half refunded if the skis are returned within a month. We will ski them and talk them up at the areas we ski at. If it is a good ski design and it is going to survive, this might be your cheapest advertising. Probably are going to need to press some longer skis from what your site is listing. Very pretty skis. Like the cross section detail. As mentioned more information is needed to encourage people to try something off the net.

    Love the artwork. Also definitely interested in some reviews. How long did you prototype them before putting them up for sale?

    I find too much sidecut to be hooky in crud and mank as much, if not more, at the front of the ski. Anyone else? Am I crazy?

    That said, for the future pintails/swallowtails are all in consideration.

    BTW, we will be at SIA.
    No I was thinking the same thing.

    the Skis are PURRRDY. but looks like way to much side cut for my taste.

    To much tip and tail. I did not calculate but guessing most models turn radius is in the teens.

    However with the general public being stuck in the Gaper carving generation this designs might generate an immediate wow foctor for the general public.

    But dam they are purrdy

    I agree. I'm really not a superstitious person, but "Depth Hoar" just gives me a really bad vibe.
