    The link I found most interesting was the one called Shop Class. Curious what Iggy’s got up his sleeve with that... If it’s what I think it is, i’m down.

    Beetle Juice - I've been saying all season the W108's are the ideal ski for Tahoe. Glad you've seen the light.

    Come in and help build your own skis?

    Scott - are you going to be updating top sheet options on the ski builder page? Asking before I pull the trigger on my Kartel 108's w/touring layup.

    Any update on the Metal Wrens? Still mid season release next year? What impression have they left on those testing them?

    Yeah, I assume this year’s top sheets will all be an option on any ski, more so wondering if there’s anything new in the custom lineup before I order.

    Hoping that’s the case. I think it’d be a pretty cool experience.

    Bit like kicking a hornets nest. One build and we’ll really think we’re expert designers. Dampness thread will be next level. Shoot me now

    Just saw the stock skis will be available with black/white topsheet options as well (currently listed on their site as “out of stock”). My question is whether or not there will be an up charge for that option.

    I should add that I haven’t read anything specific to my question in this thread or in the blister podcast.

    Any light she’s on the topic will be greatly appreciated.

    Same. That profile is really dialed.

    Though discussed something like that, we honestly wouldn't have time for that right now. Shop class is something I've wanted to do for awhile, but haven't had the time. Putting it on the website to force me to find the time - but essentially just a place to discuss ski construction/design/maintenance (at least as I see them). Just an example of what I've been wanting work up - skiers have been hitting rails for 20 years now, but 95+% of park skiers still don't know how to detune an edge. That is the sort of education gap I'm hoping to close a bit.

    And yes some new topsheet options on their way. New custom builder going up next 24-36 hours. We're just building out all the conditional formatting and checking everything (lots of variants to check). Going to be running a 30-or-so-day custom sale now for 2019 skis once it is live (Late May - Early June Production window) so you are aware.

    Top wise, not much new, but Garnet & Gunmetal will be available within the custom line (vs. just SuperGoats before).. We added a Jessie Black option and Light Blue as well.

    Not at this time. No real timeline but profile still needs several rounds to dial in at least. Jay has a pair so maybe he will hop in with some words. They are stable and turn big - that is the big thing every is leading with. I still think stock layup is going to be better suited for most skiers, though. We've ordered the metal, so it is for sure coming once we get it dialed. Just know it might take a bit longer than we hope.

    You guys have things perfectly covered in this regard without my help...

    Correct - there will be an upcharge (otherwise would undercut our custom program), just no wait time like a normal custom. The options are limited to our top models - 181cm/186cm Kartel 108, 184 Wren 108, 184cm BG - maybe a couple more. If it isn't listed as available next week or so, it won't be made available and the custom build will be the only way to get that custom ski/size (just addressing this now, as we've already has people emailing about waiting for in-stock customs in low volume sizes, which we aren't big enough to support). Color options likely going to just be black too, once the white sells out.

    Hope that helps.
    Seriously, this can’t turn into yet another ON3P thread....

    And ya, the new Wren profile is super dialed and balanced.

    Due to a freak late season snowstorm i was able to get out on my new W98's for a couple of days this weekend. Man I love these so far. They did everything I wanted, blasted through chopped up powder, bumps were awesome and easy to throw sideways when I wanted. Even felt great noodling behind my young one when she was snowboarding today. Can't wait to get more days on these

    We're not all that original - so same deal as years past. $100 off custom sale in a presale capacity. As stated, current order window will be about 30 days, with actual production starting about 2 weeks after that window closes.

    Did you decide whether or not you’re doing the “lady” Goat? The wife loves the new Jessie 96 topsheet in purple and has already asked about her powder skis for next year...

    Oh, and any chance you might run a few C&D’s w/ green sidewalls when you finally run them? If they’re not available as customs that is...

    @iggyskier I sent you an email, but just in case... when do you expect the Magnus 102's to be in stock? Can I forgo the park de-tune?

    Also, how would you compare the Magnus102's to the old Jmo's? And also, Kartel108's to Jeffrey110's.

    Thanks.

    What's the weight like on 184 C&D's? They look absolutely phenomenal!

    When they go ahead and call your bluff by making the C&D what you wanted. Guess I'm on the hook for some now.

    I’m curious to see what the final weight ends up being after AK testing.

    Steeple 108s continue to deliver stoke in a wide range of conditions. They handled the 10 cms of wind/temp pressed storm snow over bullet-proof in this line really well. Loose enough to slarve around in the 3D snow on the surface without hooking up too much and solid enough to bite into the firm underneath if required and rally through the refrozen debris on the apron.
    I'd love to add a firm snow oriented ON3P to the quiver for days like this. Somebody custom order some 179 Wren 96s in the tour layup and let the collective know what they weigh. If it's anywhere near 1800 grams/ski colour me very interested!

    Just chiming in to say I skied my stock 16/17 wren 98s on 4” of cream cheese that bonded well to some good ‘ol ec hard pack all morning on Sunday. I was blown away by their blend of speed craving, stability, and what I’d call zip. Big turns, quick turns, gentle scrubs do it all w ease at speed. So fun. I can’t help but want 108s now too.....

    I rode the 17/18's on dust on crust at the Loveland demo day and they did great. I've got a pair for 16/17's sitting in my garage waiting for some binders and for my arm to heal up. Hope I can get out on them a day or two before Loveland and A Bay call it for the season.
