Hey Jim and TB....

First of all I must say I am NOT anti rocker completely....some rockers are just a blast to ski and some...have way to much rocker or rise.

My Ross S3's at 98 underfoot carve like a GS ski and are capable of short brush turns...so poo pooing all rockers is like saying all electric cars suck...new technology is here to stay because I think there are some benefits.

As far as my wife...she demoed tons of skis and actually fell in love with Kastle MX78 before I did. What we now both like about that ski is given its healthy width underfoot, these skis are a blast to ski tight hard fast turns as well as crud, boot high pow, bumps...I mean very versatile. On pow above her boot days, she has a pair of Atomic Heave and Hells...99 underfoot.

It would be nice TB if you could take a little time to demo some of the new product out there....glad to see you posting with us...keep us up to speed on your ski evolution!

Best, Gary
