    Cage Match Comparison 2020 Renoun Citadel 106 vs 2020 Kästle FX106

    It is a brave new world when an upstart boutique ski builder from sleepy northern Vermont makes one of the reference skis in the hotly contested One Oh Something category. The Citadel 106 is Cyrus’s baby; he made the Z-90 and Endurance 98 first so that he could afford to make a lightweight 106...

    Kastle Returns to the World Cup

    No doubt, I'm a Kastle fanboy and this announcement gave me some joy. Kastle is undergoing a pretty radical expansion at the moment. Hopefully it will not turn out to be overly ambitious... Comeback in the alpine ski racing scene after 22 years. Dutch ski racer, Adriana Jelinkova, will be...

    Sold Kastle MX 78, 184 cm

    These skis shouldn't need an introduction. They have a mystique, and its deserved. The smoothness and ride is better than almost any other ski. They are extremely well made and hold up beautifully over time. I have taken care of these skis and they are in tip top shape. They have a SKIMD base...

    Sold Kastle FX104 in plastic (184)

    As title indicates, Kastle FX104’s in plastic, lets say NOS. Bought these from Powder7 before I ever stepped on a Stockli. Taking up space now. I really did like these skis a lot. Pretty wide performance envelope. $300 shipped lower 48. If that’s nonsense, let me know or make an offfer -...

    17/18 vs 18/19 Kastle FX 95 HP?

    I recently demo'ed the 2018/19 Kastle FX 95 HP, and loved the ski. I'm looking to buy a pair for the best price. During my purchasing research, I found that the 2017/18 Kastle FX 95 HP are priced at 40-50% off, which is obviously attractive. But here's my dilemma...the ski construction in...

    Kastle MX89 delamination - Help

    Christmas Day and I took my MX89s out to ski and noticed one of them had delaminated near the tip. I currently have a BMX 105 HP and an MX84. I have also previously owned the BMX 88, BMX 98, FX 84 and the CPM 82 and never experienced any issues. The quality has always been top notch, which is...

    Plans finalized for my annual "Dads-Only" trip to the Rockies, this year to Aspen (first time) -- we'll be checking in Feb 17 (Sun), skiing Monday through Friday, and rolling on on Feb 23rd.

    Cage Match Comparison 2019 Kästle MX74 vs 2019 Stöckli Laser AX

    Stöckli vs Kästle, Kästle vs Stöckli, these are the comparisons that keep people coming to Pugski. I feel like a ring announcer in Vegas: "In this corner, measuring in at 74mm underfoot, the Kästle MmmmmmmX Sev-en-ty Fourrrrrrr, and in the far cornahhhh, measuring in at 77mm underfoot, the...

    Cage Match Comparison 2019 Renoun Endurance 98 V3.0 vs 2019 Kästle FX95 HP

    These two premium skis are sure to be compared over a snifter of one's favorite Cognac. This was actually a tougher comparison last year before the Endurance evolved to its newer shape. Last year I referred to the Endurance 98 as the ski that the FX95 wanted to be, a bit stronger with a touch...
