there a many incarnations of rockers out and the goat from last year was a bad incarnation by many: so don't judge all rockers by that.  There are a ton of skis that will fit your description

another direction is New Kung Fujas, Line Blend,

a ski that fits nicely and is not rockered is the Icelantic nomad in the SFT version or the standard version.  But see if you can get out and demo. Yuo need to kind reign in the kind and type of ski you want.  soft flex, Stiff, damp, energetic and so on. The list above is a huge mix of skis in terms of flex,s rocker and ability.

Very pretty.
She's got quite the figure ;D

Can't really see your moniker on them. Very subtle. Is it more visible in person?

Yes, a slim but quite shapely figure.  I call her LynnZBelle 'cause she reminds me of you.!!   ;) :-* :-[
The name is subdued, but easily readable, just a function of the angle and light in the office for the picture.
It took me a bit to adjust, but I think I do like the dark veneer background better than the cherry colored background seen in the pictures.

I hope to get some pictures of them and Watea 84 side by side just to compare the height and amount of tip.

Truly gorgeous looking skis!! More importantly we have an indie co that is delivering skis on tiime (special order skis I might add) during a period in which their skis are in big demand. They get huge grades for that. I have recounted some of the ugly stories I had with DPS and to a lesser degree with PM Gear. Kudos to Dave for his fine and timely work.

I will be skiing these in a just a few short weeks!!

And that included 2 different artwork options (and the eventual name placement was a third option suggested by Ron) and two color options (light back/dark front or dark front/light back).? A pleasure to work with, and a lot more time invested than I would think profitable given the $50 cost.

Skiing them in just a few weeks huh? ???? Yeah, rub it in a little bit.? ;D ;D


Hand flex is encouraging, they don't feel at all stiff.? Certainly not as stiff as my Head iSL Chips or the Head iM77 Chips; perhaps a bit stiffer than the Wateas (less stiff than the Magnums).  But what does hand flexing really show.
Any particular pictures (angles/aspects) anyone is? curious about??

No lock, but it did come with a Chinese Chastity Belt.  I can't read the instructions.

Yeah, permanent yellow stains.

the black is awesome Jim, a beautiful ski  Much congrats. Take some shots of the bases, the profile with one on the ground (flat surface) so we can see the build and then the two skis profiles pressed against each other.  Thanks!

 Per the real "LZB" request.  aka Lynn ze' Bronx Belle.

And thank you again for this idea Ron.  I like the way the wrapping around the tail looks.

In person it's more of a Walnut brown than a black, but hard to discern that in the pictures.

And yes, so many possible humorous innuendoes.? I'm doing my best not to get myself in trouble by letting my "base" side show through.

Lynn got back from Haiti this past weekend.? However, not sure she will want to post very much about the experience.?
The icons tell much of the story.? Shocked, Angry, Crying, Sad? ?  :o  >:(  :'( :(

"what does hand flexing really show"

I think that hand flexing will tell you a lot about stiffness. Some sksi do ski less or more stiff than they hand flex, but I find that checking the flex at the tails, in the middle and up at the tip will tell you a lot about stiffness and about how you want to ski them. I really do hope the aren't noodles. He said that this ski was designed to be stiffer and more stable than the Howitzer. Now I am really glad that I am demoing the skis. Too soft just does not work for me anymore. I find I have to alter my skiing style too much. Having said that , if they are going to carve well on hard snow (which we know that they do) they can't be that soft as they would never hold up to the forces.

Can't wait to try them.
