    Markers aside, interesting device - kinda like a Skier's Edge, but not being locked into a frame requiring the person to find the right balance and feel. Anyway, Moseley said putting time in on it gave him an edge going into his Olympics. And just fucking around for a couple minutes he got winded pretty quickly; like to see him put up a clip doing a workout for real on it.

    As a former recipient of a Skiers Edge (prize) I concur, it looks better.

    Markers notwithstanding.

    How do you like that thing? Now that you have used it, would you actually have paid the money that it cost to buy it in the first place?

    Being fluffed would be nice. Being a fluffer, not so much. Mid-course rub n tug?

    I found an original model in pretty good shape in a thrift store parking lot several summers back, and picked it up for $25. It mainly sits in a closet, but I have broken it out a few times pre-season just as an excuse to get in the boots and pretend I'm skiing. Put a ski movie on and get some exercise. No way I'd buy one new.

    Make it an elimination event. Last guy across the line in lap one stops racing and has to then be the fluffer.

    I won mine in a bump comp a lifetime ago where all podium finishers got one. They were all the rage back then. But Fomofo's description below is exclusively how I've used mine. It's heavy as shit and takes up space so most of the year it's propped up against a wall until I flip it so the rubber doesn't get too stretched out in one direction.
