    Much better than the janky two-position Lord toepiece; this is the solution they should have devised three years ago (allowing the AFD to move a few millimeters lower). Hopefully Salomon will wake up and install sliding AFD's on the STH2 toes so they'll work with ISO 9523 soles as well.

    Here is some more info on the Volkl Confession from Stian:
    Volkl Confession

    Claims to be a titanal ski and mix between the metal Katana and Shiro. If it isn't too heavy, it sounds interesting to me.

    Here is more on the Pollard Pescado.
    Wannabe Hexcel

    Sub 20-m radius, 125-mm waist, and only comes in a 180-cm length...no thank you.

    it's a line so it should be close to 177cm, 170 given the tail shape!

    On which ski? The Bibby tour has the traditional Mustache Rocker and the Meridian is a Full Rocker ski. Like I said, I need to try the Meridian but sounds more like a playful mid-fat yet stiff.

    The Meridian, I guess I want to know if it's it a low rocker or what. Or just when can I see more about them

    Moment Meridian sounds a lot like a devastator type rocker (low) where the sidecut "matches" the camber. Moment has been just barely missing the mark for me lately...they have a few new skis that are close, but not quite right...and that just means I'm sticking with what I've got or looking elsewhere...

    This is sad, cause the 192 is a different animal than the 184. The 184 serves as a DD out west, best all around ski I've ever had. The 192 was a high speed beast, too planky for me inbounds.

    Oh well, the search continues..

    This x10.100.

    The 192 is a pure bred competition ski. Skiable for mortals but it is much more one trick pony than the 184, which is about one of the best all around chargers ever made.

    So, maybe it was in Dynastars logic that they would make the 192 solely as a competition ski for their team members or other spancered pros?

    But damn, 184cm with a juuuust a tad bit more rocker in front would have been such a perfect replacement for my aging & worn out LP105s.

    The floggings will continue until morale improves.

    I had the 192's and sold them on as they were too planky for resort skiing in Europe, I had no problems railing around on them in any conditions but it was a bit of a snooze fest. When you could open them up and turn the taps on there were hilarious but the chances of that were too few and far between. Time will tell if I've made a bad call but I suspect I've not.

    If they made in say a 186 with a touch more early rise and made a HM version of it with the B-Comp core I suspect they would have two incredible skis.

    I likey, but are the tips and tails not square? Seems like it might make attaching skins a bit tough.

    Anyone know what the Zero G Pro Guide is going to retail at? Was pretty impressed glancing at them at SIA, definitely a worthy contender to replace my Maestrale RS when they die.

    When the hell will the ski companies marketing department learn to come up with short and catchy names?

    Jeebus, people browsing for info on a boot that is named Something Zero G Pro Guide With Dingleberries are going to get far less hits than a boot called Scarpa Awesome.

    I spent a lot of time on the K116 in both 186 and 191 the past 4 days (great snow, too). The best way to describe it is that it has the same layup as the J114, but it skis looser in the tip and is more surfy (due to taper changes and the updated rocker profile).

    If you are looking for a comp I would say we have created a true progression with the skis now... K108 is great everywhere, K116 is an all mountain ski that leans towards soft snow and pow.

    The J114 is in a class of it's own and sits right between the K108 and K116 in feel, hard snow grip, and all mountain capability.

    All good, just depends what you are looking for.
    You should have been here yesterday!

    Well said! The kludgy names developed by some of the European influence really make brand awareness, and more important the product identification incredibly difficult. I'm fully in favor of simple names like awesome.
