So (in a futile attempt to remain on-topic) I'm wondering if we can create a jingle for skis.

Base, edges, VDS rubber, core (with Vibestop), ABS sidewall, tip and tail spacers, sheet of Titanal (with or without cutouts), triaxial fiberglass, under a nylon/TPU top sheet.

How many syllables does your version have compared to Mickey D's...do we include the parens as we sing it? I'm thinking your engineering skills may be stronger than your marketing/songwriting skills? :roflmao:

Have always thought the sandwich construction of skis are very similar to an actual edible sandwich. After a while, you learn certain ingredients that you do and DON’T like in either.
When I see things like Paulownia used instead of Poplar wood as the “lighter wood” in a resort ski that’s a no on the ski sandwich!
I remember when I joined Epic back in 2005, one of the first discussions I got into compared different kinds of ski construction.
I recall someone saying (paraphrasing) "Think of cap construction as a wrap and sandwich construction as a club sandwich. The different materials are like the ingredients you want your wrap/sandwich made out of."
