With various reports trickling in, I'm starting to wonder if 2012 will be remembered for introducing not just one but THREE game-changing skis: S2, AM, Nano One.

Of course, I'm calling this waaaaay too early, but I can't recall so many reports of almost-instant PBs since the 9100 more than a decade ago.

    @Than - how I wish I was in a course a decade ago!!! Only been at the course for 6 years. From my old ski (92' HO) to the new ski (HO Monza) what a world of difference though.... Can't imagine what the new ones are doing!

    I am pretty sure the Nano One and the AM 33 will both be huge hits but until there are a lot in the wild I think it is premature to put them up as ski of year.

    Looking at BigDawg the standard and mid Nano was everywhere in Texas.
    Ladies Record is now on Nano One
    #1 Pro skier on Elite list (Larken) is on Radar
    #1 M3 on USAWS list (Ward Dawg) is on D3 Fusion
    Asher matched men's record few weeks ago on HO
    and so on....

    In terms of Buzz here on BOS yes it is Nano One, AM 33 and HO S2. Every year we get buzz skis and then we get skis that everyone still loves a year later. I expect these three skis will stand the test of time but lets not get ahead of ourselves.

    I think the PB's are ski, experience on ZO building, and the BOS effect.

    Jobe is still making skis? I learned on a Jobe 20 years ago, and it had been around for some years before that...LOVED that ski.

    Not as much "still makes a ski" but more has made a comeback.
    Look for a review when ever I get organized.
