    hm, so apparently my current wren108 are softish skis that skis nice. I never noticed - i just thought they were/are awesome I am guessing TGR will approve of these new more manly beasts - though, how much of the flex difference is caused by comparing a 184 to a 189 (under the assumption that the skis get stiffer as they get longer)?

    I had the same reaction... considering I had the 112ís previously with quite a few days on them for comparison. Seems a bit exaggerated IMO.

    You could....but you shouldn't.



    A bit more than that, especially since we would have to go through a prototyping round or two with them. We had already gone through the design/testing phase with the SuperGoats, so a lot of the work to bring them to production was already done. I'm aware of the interest here. We'll see what happens.



    Let us know if that solves it. Obviously our apologies if the base bevel wasn't enough. Skis go through multiple base bevel passes on a belt & then through a dual ceramic edge grinder (DTS-U Pro)....so for something to slip through with no base bevel would be difficult. Hope the bevel solves the issues and helps make the skis easier going for you. If not, let me know.

    Also flex wise - as there was uncertainty in the comments above - there haven't been any significantly flex changes on the Wren line in the past couple years.
    Just curious what you risk loosing performance wise by going +1-2cm on the Wrens? Seems like it might make em just a bit quicker to throw around in tight places without loosing much stability or float if any? Does it move you too far out of the sweet spot?

    I donít think you will gain a lot. As stated many times before ON3P has their mounting locations pretty well dialed. If you want a ski that is more forgiving in tight spots, go shorter, or look at the Kartel, or Billygoat. And my gut reaction is tail may become a little less easy to release if you go forward. It is not hard at the recommended mounting location to throw your weight forward and pivot on the front of the ski if you want.

    Also keep in mind the context: Scott's statement was in response to someone asking why I wouldn't just mount a Wren forward instead of wanting a burlier Kartel. You'll probably be okay at +1 or less, but it will be very weird mounted anything like a Kartel, which is like +4 to +6 from the line (depending on which lengths you're comparing).

    Though again, the Wren is great at what it does, and you won't make it a Kartel by mounting it forward.

    My shorts moved a little bit when I got home yesterday and unwrapped my new W108's! Bindings out for delivery this afternoon, cold temps and snow in the forecast. Going to be a good week! Also, I've come to realize that that mornings are not the ideal time to break the news to the wife that you bought news skis.

    So when is the ideal time? Asking for a friend.
