@James I did measure and take pics of the Blossom SL edges compared with the really skinny edges on my Rossi GS skis from ten years ago or so and with the standard edges on another pair of skis. There were some technical snafus and a lot of ongoing laziness on my part. However, bottom line is that they are in between - a little thinner than on my FX 84s but not stupid skinny like the Rossis.That’s unfortunate. Though how thin I’d have to see.
Seems to thankfully be a trend to more normal edges. This year Dynastsr, Rossi, Völkl, at least, their FIS SL skis are coming with near normal edges.
Last years Blizzard has thin edges. It’s close to half as much, but I didn’t measure. Despite the Blizzard being $300 less, I bought the Dynastar.
The thin edge thing really needs to stop. Maybe people with 20 FIS points might benefit, doubtful, but they can just have a shop grind them down. Or go to town on them with a coarse wheel and a TriOne.
Otherwise, we need edges so they can be sharpened and the skis aren’t done in one season. Or less if they’re heavily used by kids racing.
When you spend nearly $1k on a ski you should get the whole thing. Not edges ground down 50%.
