    Besides the metal that people think they need.

    People also think they need that unibody pedestal toe piece of the 18/15 vs the winged toe piece of the 14/12. People believe it has more elasticity.

    Pretty unlikely, considering shops had to drop the price on new STH Steels to around $200 to unload them. Unless shops can get them for $100 wholesale, Soli won't have many buyers.

    Soli could sell a small production run at cost just for the marketing buzz though.

    For me its the flatter mount of the 18/15 toe, creating a better ramp angle.

    The 15/18 just feels better than the 14.

    I have never skied the 18 with the shim though, so interested to see how the new GW AFD feels. Hope it's not too bad.

    Blizzard had that same color pallet and geometrical patterns on a ski circa 1976 or so. Return to the past.

    They actually look pretty cool in person, fun, easy pow ski that worked better than I thought it should in the cut up.
    a positive attitude will not solve all of your problems, but it may annoy enough people to make it worth the effort

    That Salomon Stance is wading into crowded territory and I'm here for it... 102 at 183 would be a useful travel ski for me. Topsheet is acceptable. Anyone have insights on how the metal is laid up?

    Skied the Stance 90 today, best Salomon Iíve ever been on. Thatís gonna be a very popular line of skies next year. Also skied the new Bonafide 97, I always hated this ski, felt like a 2x4, no longer the case. Itís a very easy turner, and miles apart from its predecessor. New Kore 87 is another ski that should get a lot of traction on the East Coast. New Ripstick 96 is a little beefier underfoot, another great ski from Elan. Perfect weather and snow today at Pico for the demo. Thatís a cool old hill.

    Icelantic is coming out with 2 new male and 2 new female skis for next year that have the rocker matching the sidecut similar to 4frntís ReflectTech. Read short blurb on the EVO link above. Donít know much else about them though. 117 waist and 106 I think.

The 122 also sounds like a perfect pow day ski where you are boot packing or sidestepping all over to get pow. I wonder if my BMX 115s will hood their spot in the quiver.
