I played with the 176. Totally quiet, solid...no surfy feel. This is a damp and reliable tracking machine. I suspect it would excel in tracking lines through crud without any deflection, yet maintain enough float to keep it from feeling balky.Thanks for the great reviews!
Very interested in trying out the Stance 96 as I hear it’s very quiet and solid like a slightly less traditional “Mantra”.
Did you try the 176cm version or the 182cm on the 96? Wished they made a mid 180’s length but I bet the 188cm should charge pretty well
I only skied it on tightly packed snow conditions. I would recommend people demo this ski if they want a solidly secure, quiet feel underfoot. I felt it was a totally different direction for Salomon....in no way similar to the QST line...and not as carve-only as the MAX / Force series.
