Is this the most exciting season in slalom equipment yet?

jhughesjhughes Posts: 1,013 Mega Baller
My problems in slalom are not equipment-rooted so I'm not speaking for myself here, but just this year we have seen:
  • Two hot aftermarket fin designs
  • New ZO setting(s)/programming
  • New miracle rope from ML
  • What seems like damn good skis from everybody
With all this new seemingly materially better stuff out there, will we see some records fall?

    Do records for money spent on ski gear count!? :)

    I am very excited about all this tech, because it's just plain fun. But, as you rightly point out in your intro sentence, equipment is usually a tiny fraction of the puzzle. The ski I'm on right now was literally Caldwell's for quite a while, and I love it, but for some reason I can't ski quite as well as Caldwell on it...

    The best money I'll spend on skiing this year will be to improve the material between my ears.

    And the advancements (especially envelope pushing design) may continue with props. Or should this be under ".....why I love the Internet" thread. :D

    Update: 3 new aftermarket fins.

    I have to agree with @jhughes there is so much cool new gear out now.
