I'm pretty much with Ian,and have skied on 6 or 7 different skis this season, varing from 2m K2s down to 158 Elans.
I did buy another pair in the Worgl Hervis sales, three weeks ago, largely to provide additional protection for my dodgy knee. Very easy turners, and a bonus was a higher speed on our speed gun.

Dave, I assume the Worgl Sale is based upon second hand and refurbished skis? What pair did you puchase and were they a little bargain
I just love the gravitational pull

Alistair! You know how to wound a man! All five sets of my skis were bought new. However, it just might be true that I have an eye for a good purchase!
My new skis are Atomic Thingys, cost new 390 Euros. With the sale discount, Dave Mac discount, and.... 10% off for the Wildschonau Tennis club discount, I paid, erm 180 Euros. With Bindings....
I did fail to buy gloves, where a right thumb piece would be useful, Sallos, but then I have stitched mine, and a jacket for the wife, (phew) ~ at one stage, in Hinterglemm she was looking at 700 Euro jackets!

Dave, I would say they are a good bargain at 180 Euros. Now what about treating Mrs Mac, you know she's worth it But 700E is a bit steep I must say!

Sounds like a bargain, were they the Super Mountain or Cross Over model?
Yes, the Super Mountain One's. Lovely

There very lush and certainly at that price! I bet you wish you got them now however, £450 could go towards an Easter trip

£450 for Vists is an absolute steal, I love my pair.

They look like a great ski, but I couldn't find anything on the camber, or sidecut design. Any input Pablo?
because I'm so inclined .....
