    And my journey to quiver overhaul 2024 continues. I have been watching the HL story develop over the last year and really wanted to replace my L138's with C132 / FR132's. Then MO drops the 120ST and I grab a set. They over performed all my expectations. After one day on them I decided to not miss out on the FR132 and ordered some. After 5-6 days on the 120ST and being completely mind blown in less than ideal conditions, I pull the trigger on a pre order R110 for a when its good but not fresh DD. Now this RC95 comes in as a true EC DD. The best part is MO and HL is a worthy cause and makes me feel good supporting. Now off to GS to clear out more of the old quiver.

    Thank you MO and this community
    Harvest the ride.

    Not exactly. But I like your version of the story better. Sweet Mary, it would be glorious.

    Push the Envelope: RC85 & RC95

    The 182 length is a deliberate choice to allow to ski in ways you can’t on your long skis.

    EE is likely longer than your Brahma, and the stability definitely will be.
    I was just pondering a 191 r90 with the same shape as the bc90. If you’re going to say it’s a narrow pow ski it’s going to need to have longer lengths for some. The RC85 sounds a lot like the original MX83, I’d want longer but I’m an outlier on the size scale at 6’5” 245#.

    Something along the lines of a Nobis Inspired/Legend 8800 in 188 and HL lay up and modern shaping.

    We decided to target the middle of the range to start to ensure hitting MOQs.

    If there is significant demand for middle size, I think shorter and longer will eventually happen but only if the middle size proves to be a good seller.

    So tell all your average friends to buy a pair. ;-)

    How many HL threads does this make? Like six...

    Can't you cultists amalgamate them into one, like has been done for every other brand?

    That wouldn’t be very zealous

    You mean the useless threads with 500 pages that no one can sort through? Great idea

    Is any other company making skis worthy of their own thread?

    There are actually a handful of threads dedicated to specific ski models. So, yeah?

    Nothing more than MO and I emailing back and forth about the perfect hard snow ski. Nothing further. But maybe he’ll hire me as chief ski tester.

    LOL

    Renegade
    Hoji
    M102
    V-Werks Resort Build
    K108 Resurrection
    Sender vs 108
    BG vs other powder skis

    Pretty much every ski has its own thread. As it should be.

    Oh... and these two skis look dope and just entered my hamster-wheel brain.

    Getting this thread back on track, I’m interested in the tail profile on these skis. I’m gonna ski my Legend 94s until they die, and I’m thrilled MO and TAFKALWS have solved the replacement ski hunt before it even started. But the tails on the L94s and many of the other reference skis are quite a bit flatter than the RC95 appears to my eye. I can absolutely see the advantage of loosening up the tails a touch on a ski like this, but I’m curious whether they’ll retain the fat GS ski character or take on more of a skinny comp ski vibe with that tweak.

    Dear ski people who know more than this jong,

    R99/R87 had metal, but I don’t see it mentioned in these. How’s that gonna be different?

    They don’t have metal and yet are metal.

    Had the FL105 out today in fact. Man, it is so smooth. The thought of that layup in a narrower version for firm, East Coast spots has me drooling. I'm tempted to just say screw it and grab the 182cm but I know how that story ends.
    yessir, I really wish there was more interest in the 17x-180 skis. I break even on a mold (ie don’t lose money) at 10 pair and a minimum order is 5 pair.

    There were only 5 pair of 180 FR110 ordered all of last preorder, only 2x pair of 178 FL105 sold, with 3 pair still in stock from the first pressing; and I think only 2x 180 swallowtails (across all 3 versions!) have been ordered.

    Hope that helps clarify! I’d love to offer them, certainly, but need real orders to justify investing $1000’s into them!

    So if we get 10+ people to order a 191 R90 freeride layup it’s a go?

    It’s the new bro model. Or on3p
    Or whatever.

    But Marshall does know skis. And ski design and production.
    Hoping he sells many pairs beyond this limited hangout.
    I’ve just decided to be a middle aged somewhat depressed somewhat anxious fucktard until the end.

    I'm pretty sure Arild’s heart just skipped a beat.

    He and I have penciled a shape like this in with a few iterations over the years.

    Sweet!
    It may not be on the "inspired by" list, but this 95 shape and description remind me a lot of my OG(1.5) Enforcers. Those are cold-dead-hands skis for me still, but when they die this will be high on my list.

    Holy cow, I had no idea.

    I'm honestly trying to do my part: FL105 (178), FR110 (180), R110 (181) preorder, R120 ST (180) preorder.

    This info makes that RC85 183cm more tempting.
