Phil...you've done it again...I don't know if this is another 20 something euphuism that I have no chance of understanding...(kid get off my lawn!!!!!!), or if we're talking about the numb-skulls that actually were earphones skiing...or that since there is usually a left and right ski (mono-skier do not apply) we're thinking about the ability to balance the performance of the activity to the left or the right? Lastly we all know that "11" is just a marketing "thing" the real answer is 42!

More premium skis a la Blossom and Renoun! This is very exciting indeed. I am sending a cage match between the V3/88 and the Endurance 88 — or maybe the SR 88 for that matter!

I just got done looking at their website the RS 78 looks like a great ski. I see that they make it a 175 that is 76 under foot and 17M. I bet that would be a good ski for the East Coast hard pack and ice. The tip of the ski is interesting it looks familiar wasn't there another manufacture using that style tip? I am not sure if I missed it or the information about tip rocker was not posted? The plate on the RS 78 only fits a Marker? Are any other plates available?

pre-covid they did bi weekly demos at our local hill, Im trying to make test my way through all their models, cool to see them reviewed here :)

Demos, on non demo, but actual proper bindings, is nice.

" How many premium non-race skis come with a Marker piston plate? I can’t think of any, but this is how Stereo is offering the Piste RS/78. "

Völkl Deacon Pro for one......

Yes, and K2 is coming out with a Disruption for next season too.

The tip is unique for sure. Yes, there is some early rise in both the tip and tail, pretty uncommon in this segment. The only plate that is available is the Marker, but I am sure you could custom order w/o a plate and put your own on.

Just a quick thought, does a 17M ski seem long for a 76 under foot? Many ot the 76 UF skis are in the 14M skis?

Yes, it is on the longer side, that is not a bad thing, if it is what you are looking for.

V3/88 looks very intriguing.

I am of Norsk heritage, and willing to test these skis!
