    I took one more ride on the SR2 with the bindings back. The ski is way more twitchy with the bindings back just a tiny bit. I sort of liked it through 35 but at 38 it is too much. For ride 31 I moved the bindings back to stock and it was a lot better.

    30 rides? You were to test skis for only 25 then move on? interesting validity of the "ski test".

  • When I talk about my next victim, it's usually a beautiful blonde with big tatas. Horton, on the other hand, is talking about a hunk of carbon. Such is life of a married man.

    Well-endowed blondes are pretty much hunks of carbon in lots of water, too.

    It's not the materials, it's the presentation :).

  • Presentation is everything! It's no wonder women don't put up with me for very long. :)

    Riding a ski until you "want to ski good" sure doesn't sound like a ski test.

    Sounds like a leeching way to get/ride free skis until you find one that that's "good".

    Sorry.

    Hey now. I sure as hell am not gonna try all these skis, so if somebody is willing to do so and report on their experiences, I could care less what the underlying motivation is.

    And keep in mind that this situation contains information. The Sans Rival is working so well for Horton that he doesn't want to move on. That fact might mean more than any review he could write!

    If I were to try a new ski right now (which I don't plan to, my 9900sl is doing everything I want it to), I think it would have to be the Sans Rival, despite my inherent bias that anything with a French name can't be well-engineered. :-)

    Sounds like a great big ol "BAM"- move on horton, or there'll be a protest.

    OK you guys stop. The average reader does not know that you are just giving me a hard time.

    JTH - you ran that so 35 easy, there's no excuse for your inability to run the purple loop. Be confident in your abilities, there's a lot of us Ballers who want to see you at the exit gate of a tournament 38 !

    I like it better when he is frustrated
    Shut up and ski

    Yea, Horton's form is just about perfect. I am also suprised he isn't busting out a 38 here and there. It'll happen soon I bet.

    I don't think Horton will ever do it. He is full of excuses. That is why he won't let me ship the A2 to Scoke. Scoke will run 39 his first year in M3 w or wo Horton's help;
    I learned everything I know not to do from Horton

    The search for the perfect ski is like the search for the perfect woman... it will be fruitless in the end. Finding one of either that will put up with your shortcomings... priceless!
    (I hope Lynda doesn't read this and take it the wrong way. Oh well, one of those shortcomings. Love ya babe!)

    Yes...but unlike women...u can ride as many skis as you want and not get in trouble ;although. It still may cost you as much
