You're buying skis for you. If it's not 'your ski, it's just not your ski. It doesn't really mean the company is going to pot. I test skis to figure out who a ski is for. Sure, I take note of what I personally like, but I'll generally qualify the difference to be upfront about things. A great example of a ski that is exceptional for its segment was the Nordica Nav. 80. Is it 'my' ski? No. Is it excellent in many of the qualities that make a great skill building ski that can take one from matching to parallel to advanced bumps and carving? In spades. It was an eye opener and a bargain when measured in bang for the buck. In closing, I'll say only that if you want a shop ro go out of business quickly, only buy and sell what you personally like.Ahhh. Okay. There is the disconnect then and perhaps with @Philpug as well. You are mainly interested if the new model is "good"
I'm more passionate that I feel one of the more unique skis that I personally really liked in the market was changed. And not only changed, but that it's bad for Kästle. You don't care much about either other than reviewing the new ski which you feel is "good". There is the disconnect. Ah, okay. Case closed.
