So…… the sickness continues!

I’ve been contemplating being responsible and just skiing the awesome quiver I have, or throwing caution, aka responsibility to the wind and buying another pair. Probably going with the latter.

So I’m intrigued by the Micro-Skiery’s. I found a few companies that have grabbed my interest, and tickles my reach for the credit card muscles.

1. Wagner skis
2. Prior skis
3. Meier skis

i want a 98-104ish quiver killer so to speak but nothing will kill my awesome Volkls Only quiver.
I feel I’m being one dimensional and these really fun shapes are calling me like a crack pipe called Richard Prior,
or should I just stay consistent with my Volkls only and grab a pair of revolt 104’s
Who is in the know about these smaller more custom small box companies?

someone either talk me off the ledge or help me spend my money!

:daffy: :roflmao::huh:

WTF man…

Hey, if he wants to be different...and cure the sickness with _one_ski_

Faction isn't micro anymore.


Hattori Hanzo - eh maybe he can get one next winter - maybe. Or maybe they've closed shop, just like Duret and Lunar.


And Coda have put enough drive and sponsorship into events like Monopalooza that, really, they deserve all the attention they get.

His other option is, of course, Snowshark.

Those look like two-tailed tadpoles...do you wait until they metamorphose into frogs before you kiss them so they can turn into Stockli Stormriders?

If you are truly Tahoe Joe....have you ever considered Moment? Considering they are right there in Reno/Tahoe......?
I haven’t given them much thought actually. But I’ll take a delve in to,the web sight.

Moment thread is very informative….it doesn’t really fit the “demographic” here…but the company/product/customer service have created a very loyal following elsewhere for a reason.

Three different years I demoed Meier skis, a bunch each time - at Winter Park, CO. One of those years the tunes were off, scary.
For me there were no standouts - at least for an "old snow" day.

A great person I know was for a year or two sales manager with them. I think he moved on, not sure. I've been wanting to touch base with him.

Moment, on the other hand, has standouts, special skis. The soft snow skis especially.

Also Folsom and Shaggy's and Lib Tech.

You've got a full Volkl quiver it sounds like?

May I suggest a full quiver of Indies? Why choose only one?!

I know several people who have focused on a quiver of just Volkls; and others who have focused on Blizzard, K2, Peak, Praxis, Atomic, Stockli or Rossi.
(However, most of those "others" are brand reps or associates for the brand they focused on, though some of those loved the brand best
well before they worked for them - and campaigned for a job accordingly.) :)

I like the way you think. But I also like the roof over my head!

ON3P makes excellent skis, I own a Woodsman 102 and a BillyGoat 116. These skis are manufactured in Portland and are perfect for Cascade Concrete, so probably also good on Sierra Cement.

I say buy one of each and then report back!

I too tend to buy new skis when I already have a perfectly awesome quiver!

Have fun!
