    Cage Match Comparison Stockli Laser AX vs. Augment 77

    I was quite intrigued when Phil reached out and let me know he had an Augment 77 in an 159 (121.5/77/107.5, 14m radius) available for testing. I've only read about Augment on Pugski, but have yet to see one in the wild in Tahoe. And I have a 2018 Stockli Laser AX in a 159 (123/78/109, 13m...

    Ski blowout- Stockli and Blizzard

    Hey everyone, Sorry I haven't been posting: I have barely been skiing. Too much going on in my life right now! I hope to take advantage of spring conditions once things settle down: I was supposed to ski in Tahoe last week, but Bend got buried and I couldn't make it out of town. Ah well, life...

    Best Selling Ski

    For the first time a woman’s ski was the best-selling ski in America - the Blizzard Black Pearl 88 (the period ending either September, October or November 2018). Overall, women’s ski sales were up 21%, far outpacing men’s sales growth. In the same period, men’s snowboard equipment sales were...

    Brahma SP vs Regular

    I rented Brahma SP (173) for three days at Park City, Utah over Xmas, felt very comfortable on them. Now that my old ski (2016 Bushwacker) got a giant core shot in one ski, I'm thinking about upgrading. The problem is that I can't find any details on them other than some superficial info about...

    Sold Kastle FX104 in plastic (184)

    As title indicates, Kastle FX104’s in plastic, lets say NOS. Bought these from Powder7 before I ever stepped on a Stockli. Taking up space now. I really did like these skis a lot. Pretty wide performance envelope. $300 shipped lower 48. If that’s nonsense, let me know or make an offfer -...

    Fischer 2019/2020 Demo Dec 6

    I got to ski next year's skis with ski legend and Fischer product manager Mike Hattrup at Stowe Mountain Resort. Conditions were a few inched of dust on a couple day old crust. Pretty decent skiing, but a little noisy some places. Bumps were January firm, with just a bit more dust on them...

    Help me continue my Kastle addiction

    I'm male 5'7" 130 lbs. I have the FX85 and LOVE them for moguls and glades. On groomers though, they're kinda meh. So I'm looking for a skinny Kastle, either MX or LX. I would prefer this ski to have a short radius, and I also ski fast on groomers, think 30mph. Today I demoed the MX74 and...

    Anyone Tried the 2018 Blizzard Brahmas Yet?

    Hi! So, I have been skiing on some older Kästles, old Volkl Racing Skis, and some also old Head Racing skis. While I am pretty happy with my setup, at the end of this 2016-2017 started to demo a lot of skis with the intentions to buy a pair and, needless to say I had some great times with some...
