Futher of ski cores

Now that radar has brought out a PMI core will that mean that other ski brands will follow suit. Or will it remain exclusive to radar skis

    World Record and many Podiums with non PMI core.

    What's the best tournament score on the vapor pro build so far to date?

    What about the best on a Vapor non pro build?

    @Stevie Boy that doesn't mean there shouldn't be progression. At one point there were World Records and many podiums with non-carbon skis. I am not saying that the PMI core is the next thing but I would expect there will be one at some point.

    @lpskier you are older than I am my brain doesn't always go that far back :smile: I did actually learn to run the course as a kid on a Northland Bantam and remember my Dad skiing on a Maha. I still have a Maha high wrap in my basement but I haven't been tempetd to ski on it.

    @Chef23 we are experiencing some great performing skis right now, probably one of the greatest eras in our sport, I am not sure the equipment comes into the equasion, its more about the individual standing on it, yes we can embrace new materials, but is it humanly possible for the Pros to push the boundary any further and would different materials play a part, the Pros already take my breath away they are extrodinary to say the least.

    @Stevie Boy it has always been about the guy standing on the ski. That doesn’t change the search for better technology.

    @Chris Rossi Is the Lithium a bit softer flex than the PB Vapor?

    @Chris Rossi
    Maybe a bit off toppic.
    Is it only the skis?
    What is your view on the scores versus small soft low floating turballs?

    @coach3 the skis are built to the same flex numbers. @gsm_peter anything that helps inspire confidence can lead to higher scores. I don't notice much with buoys but others are very sensitive to them. That being said, I have been buying Wally buoys recently.
