Pre - review bump, b-day boy!!!!!

WILCO Dr. Perry.  In my mind I'll be comparing them to the Watea 84's because I like that ski quite a bit.  And since you skied my Watea's that should make it easier for you to relate, even though you almost certainly want a longer UC.

I am late to the party (at least on the written page)
But let me add my

HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!

May your new girls help you float like a butterfly!

(in the powder, but the old one will keep you on the ground otherwise. ;) :D)

PS. These skis are just so pretty. Damn, I want a pair just to have and admire.
The workmanship is extraordinary.

I hope that protective layer they put on them works. otherwise I am already grinding my teeth for Jim for the first time a young buck comes up behind him and starts bumping his beauties in the lift line.

No need to grind teeth on my account Dr. Perry.? I think it would be really sad if one were so enamored of the looks of their ski topsheets that they forgot that they were, after all, skis!!? My plan is to just ski them.? The looks are exceptionally nice, but the reason I bought them was the RealSkiers reveiw of them to ski.? If I wanted something to just look at, I could have bought a picture at WalMart for a lot less.? ?;D ;D

And who knows, it may be some dazzling beauty (probably Lynn) rather than some young buck skiing across my topsheets.? ?>:D

Jim,

You've got two sharp, carbide tipped ski poles -- one to defend each "Mariella" with.

A guy on the PMTS forum using the user name High Angles posted this review of the Chariot and other Ski Logik skis. Jim, I sense we are getting close to your review!!

Here are high angles comments:

I've been on the Rave, Ullr's Chariot, and the Howitzer.

The construction yields a somewhat heavy feeling ski that unfortunately doesn't end up translating into stability. I felt like all of the Ski Logiks were quite susceptible to being easily bounced around by the terrain. They don't provide that confidence inspiring "glued to mountain" kind of edge grip that I favor. There was no fresh snow the day I tested them so I can't report on anything, but their groomer performance.

Overall I felt they were competent skis, but not fantastic skis. There are many other skis I would choose long before any of these. If you would like additional detail I would be happy to provide it (I took notes during my demos, but don't have them handy at the moment).

interesting, this almost mirrors the post by Noodler on Epic.  I wonder if they both demoed in WP?  snow was not good.

Hmmm...and I spoke to a guy at Deer Valley with a brandy new pair and new was very happy with them and then conditions that day were quite varied...

The true test....is what it does for you...

Besides....it's one beautiful looking piece of artwork!

Come on Jim....when's the first ride?

I skied with Jim and Lynn today.  And yes, Jim did have a smile on his face as he skied his "Mariella" skis.

Jim's laptop computer was damaged in the airport, so he won't be posting a review until he gets back home.

teaser:  Lynn declared that Mariella was a "wayward woman."
