There's detail there under Hardware and the specific ski model. If I get a chance later I'll measure camber. Undoubtedly the best quality skis I've had my hands on.

I went into the shop about 15 times, and nearly went and got them on the last day, but decided against it. Well, Mrs H decided against it actually.
I've abandoned an Easter trip, as we're off to Rome in May for a long weekend, and I am looking for a holiday for June so as nice as they were and what a deal they were, I am kind of glad I didn't get them as that might have put paid to either of the summer trips!

Tony, Yes I am now resigned to the fact that our ski season is now over. I have put the storage wax on our skis until they come out of hibernation. Although were talking summer holidays, I'm beyond all help because I'm hunting for next seasons January trip already. I must take my medication but Austria (somewhere new) is looking good If you had brought the skis it would torment you having to wait sooo many months before using them!
I just love the gravitational pull

If money was really no object it would have to be the DPS Wailer 112RP Pure with Binding Freedom SollyFit Swap Plates so I could mount either a pair of Salomon s914s or the new Plum touring bindings.

Most Vist skis are rebranded Blossom skis http://www.blossomski.com/ they make extremely good skis which are sold under a number of brand names. They have a factory shop in Chiavenna (down the road from Madesimo) which is worth a visit.

If money was no object I would purchased more than just one pair of skis. But I picked up yesterday a pair of Armada JJ on sale. I have a pair of Voelkl Aura and they did a great job this season so I thought I was all set for couple years at least, but I happened to try JJ and I immediately knew I had to get them. They are so much fun in anything powder (even as little as we had this season) it should be illegal. They turn themselves. If it wasn't for long icy spells that happen here i could say they are brilliant all around and could be the only pair of skis. But the edge is very short so for ice a different pair is needed. and I am thinking now about getting a slalom-type craver, like Atomic ST, and maybe selling the Voelkl. or, keeping them too, they are very good skis.
