    Cage Match Comparison 2020 Liberty V92 vs 2020 Liberty Evolv 90

    Sibling rivalries ... why can’t we all just get along? No more long car rides with “He’s touching me” or “She’s looking at me.” As we discovered last year, Liberty became an overnight success with our readers, and it only took the company a bit over a decade to do so. How did this newfound love...

    Cage Match Comparison 2020 Liberty V92 vs 2020 Salomon QST 92

    Yes, Liberty is the overnight success that started well over a decade ago but really caught our attention last season with the oh-sooo-good V-Series collection, with its Vertical Metal Technology construction and unique low-rise tip with a good amount of flare (… and more than just 15 pieces of...

    Blizzard Bushwacker vs. Liberty V82

    Advanced/Expert all-mountain skier looking for an East coast ski that has good edge grip, carves well, and can ski bumps. I enjoy high-edge angles on the groomers and zipper-lining bumps. Not intending this pair to be used much for trees or powder. 80-90mm is the sweet spot for me. My research...

    Comparison Review K2 Mindbender 99Ti vs Liberty Evolv 100

    There is no question that K2 has shifted gears over the past few years with new designers, new skis, and a new attitude. We have also seen a shift at Liberty with brand new collections, including the Evolv 100 featured here. Why did I choose these two to go against each other? First, they are...

    Individual Review Ron's 2020 Reviews 90mm and Wider: The Way I Ski It

    Fischer Ranger 94 FR Dimensions: 126-92-117 Radius: [email protected] Sizes: 161, 169, 177, 185 Size tested: 177 Design: All New The Ranger 94 FR was a real surprise for me. I really liked it on the firm groomed snow. It does a lot of things well. It is solid, energetic, and fun, as well as fairly damp...

    Comparison Review Thumbnail Reviews from the Not-on-Mother's-Day Gathering at A-Basin

    It appears that all the insider Pugs have been given the green light by the Powers That Be to let loose with their reviews of 2020 model year skis, so I figured I'd pile on with some quick notes on skis Phil and Tricia were nice enough to lay out in Colorado a few weeks ago. Conditions: I would...

    Liberty VMT82 sound right for me?

    I'm considering getting the VMT82 in 165cm to replace my 12+ year old and very much loved Fischer Progressor 8+ 165cm and to relegate my meh 4 year old Nordica NRGy 80s 169cm to rock ski status. I've read just about everything on Pugski and the interwebby about the VMT82 and it sounds like it...

    Cage Match Comparison 2019 Stöckli Laser AX vs 2019 Liberty V-Series V76

    This comparison wasn't on my radar initially, but it was brought up by a few members who were considering both. So, how do these smaller, specialty brands stack up with their offerings of similar dimensions? Well, let's check 'em out. We will start with the golden one, the Stöckli Laser AX...

    Individual Review Long-Term Review: Liberty V92

    Liberty V92 Dimensions: 133-92-110 Radius: [email protected] Size tested: 179 Design: All New The V92 might be the most fun, most forgiving, most capable ski I have had the pleasure to click into. At the same time, it is a high performer that does many things extremely well. Simply stated, it's a...

    Cage Match Comparison 2019 Liberty V76 vs 2019 Blizzard Black Pearl 78 vs 2019 DPS Alchemist Cassiar 79

    Ah, 76, 78, 79. This seems to be the sweet spot for a ski that can carve up the groomers, rip a zipper line, or help someone work on technique. For me, it is the sweet spot for a ski that puts a smile on my face. I was fortunate enough to be able to ski all three of them early in their lives...

    Help me obsess

    Let's say that I am replacing my Fischer Motive 95 skis. And let's say that I can get any of the following skis and bindings for short money to use as my one ski western quiver. Which way would you go? Head Core 93 Nordica Enforcer 93 Rossignol Experience 94 Liberty V92 And for bindings...

    Cage Match Comparison 2019 Liberty V-Series V76 vs 2019 Head Supershape iRally

    The Liberty V-Series V76 takes on the Head Supershape iRally. Am I really going there? Am I really going to put the all-new, relatively unknown, mostly unproven Liberty up against the reference ski in the segment? Hell yeah. Because this very good Liberty has everything to gain and nothing to...
