Re: Advice on Volkl Aura & rocker

I'm new - don't delete me!

While I'm here, is the tweaked Volkl Aura on the 2012 test list? Have a dilema whether to buy the 2011 version now with 30% off or wait for the rockered version in 2012 and pay full price. Desperately trying to track down opinions on whether the rocker addition is a significant improvement.

Cheers!
Haven't read the other replies (yet) but I've skied the 2011 and 2012 Aura's in tests and thought you may like feedback from someone who's been on both skis.
The 2012 is slightly better than the 2011, with a slightly softer tail(not terribly softer) and a slight(very slight) rise in the tip.
The difference between the two is there but not huge.
IMHO the 2012 Aura will not be changed enough to detract the Aura lovers, but it's (I'll be it slight) changes may draw a new fan.

All in all, I think the Nordica Nemesis and Salomon Geisha are better skis in that category.? If you want to go wider, the K2 Missedbehaved(102 under foot) is awesome!
