    My DW104s arrived yesterday, so I would assume yours ship asap.

    I haven't decided yet, torn between on the line and -1. I have a pair of praxis concepts at -1 I like with the similar camber profile, but different code and width and length... I think the triple camber twin rocker profile likes to be close to the line. If you shift too much you can put the bindings in weird places on the camber pockets. Just my experience with no backup

    Note: I received a call from moment about the line being misprinted on some of the skis and to double check with a tape measure, mine was off by 1cm. I'm sure you'll get a similar call or receive an already fixed pair but just something to watch out for.

    Yes, we made a small batch of Deathwish 104's that received their sidewall stamp at -5cm from true center instead of -6cm. The employee messed up because this is where the stock Deathwish 112 mounts.

    All the skis are 100% fine, the stamp graphic is just 1cm off on this small isolated batch.

    We have called, emailed and texted everyone who may have received one of these skis.

    Also, you don't need to worry about your Deathwish 104 skis if you read this thread in 2 months.

    Yeah I’ve been meaning to say something about the bare ass on my CB top sheets. And bananas are of course very phallic. I’m offended.

    In all honesty, my favorite top sheet ever.

    I assume the D-Wish is going to be a limited edition. Not sure how many people can really handle the big D at 202 and 122 underfoot with the triple camber. If you make the lighting on this years deathwish a purple it can really get the veiny-ness that the D-Wish needs.

    And yes, they do have that damn Amphibio tech that means that the left and right skis have different rocker/camber profiles, but that's just even more of an argument for a true graphic that stretches over both skis. It reminds me of the first gen K2 Marksman that always drove me nuts because I couldn't remember if the stripes were supposed to slope in, or out when I had the skis on the correct feet.

    Best solution I ever saw was in '94--a GD Steal Your Face sticker cut in half and applied to the tips of a pair of Pre 1200s. Except for the time that a guy reeking of weed had his on the wrong feet. In the interest of full disclosure, it smelled very skunky and he seemed to be having a waaay better time than anyone else on the hill.

    It would be really hard for Moments to stoop that loooooowwww!

    It appears Moment is the Bontrager’d

    *lil history lesson for the younger set, before big S was litigation happy and prior to the company holding us all hostages to shitty rear suspension thru the early 2000’s by enforcing their patent claims to the best design of the day.... the company got started when Mike Synard purchased some Keith Bontrager frames, flew to Taiwan & hires lowest cost factories to mass produce products he couldn’t build nor design.

    Moment seems to be doing the honest work and looping in core skiers, building in Reno & upping the stoke.

    Pretty disappointing that they did this.

    Not going to try and sue a company based in Slovenia.

    At the end of the day it makes them look bad, not us.

    Can you really take a company seriously when they make some shit like this?
