In terms of painting your own design on them, some of us dont have that option (contracts with sponsors) I wanna redisgn the expression graphic for a mid season release but we'll see how it goes.
They are all the same BASIC design. Wood core, and a few changed dimensions that have none or very little effect on how the ski rides. UR WRONG, DIMENSION CHANGE IS THE MAIN DIFFERENCE IN HOW A SKI RIDES! WIDER SKIIS RIDE DIFFERENTLY
. The only exeption are the mother ships. It doesnt take much designing to just change a few dimensions either. TAKES WORK TO GET THE RIGHT WOOD WIDTH AND THCKNESS FOR THE SKI CENTRE. GOTTA FIGURE OUT WHETHER SIDECUT IS DESIRABLE, ETC.
. Personally I think its all bull and they have no idea what they are doing right now. UR UNINFORMED.
They released the new bindings too early too. FIRST THING THAT I AGREE WITH
My local ski shops used to carry Line but now they stopped because there skis are crap. SKIS WERE CRAP BEFORE WITH DELAMMING, MUCH BETTER NOW, STILL NOT AMONG THE BEST THOUGH.
He even advised me NOT to get them because they cannot be used outside of the park or pipe with much sucess and most of the people that bought them from him didnt like them much. THEY CAN BE USED OUTSIDE THE PARK EASILY, THAT WAS A DUMB COMMENT.
And whoever said that the graphics have to do with skiing has no clue. One example are the Line 1260s, what do ninjas have to do with skiing? Graphics really dont matter much in the first place either. Salomon, they are making their skis lighter and more durable every year. MORE DURABLE... POSSIBLY, BUT NOT REALLY.
They are the ones that went off the old traditional wood core way that Line and many other of the companys do it. I DONT KNOW IT SALOMON EVER USED WOOD. THE ORIGINALS WERE TOO SOFT TO BE WOOD.
The wood cores snap easier and will rot away if any moisure hits them. WOOD SNAPS, SOME WOOD IS BETTER THAN OTHERS, DO RESEARCH. THE WOOD CORE SKIIS SHOULD NEVER ROT UNLESS U CUT A SLIT ALL THE WAY DOWN TO THE WOOD IN A LONG LINE, A SMALL NICK OR CUT DOWN THE WOOD DONT MEAN SHIT.
So how do you criticize Salomon for trying something new and experimenting. WE'RE NOT CRITICIZING THE SPACE FRAME, WE'RE TALKING ABOUT THE DESIGN, PRIMARILY.
I think it was a success. Thats how REAL twintips are made. Not by copying other companys basic design. ALL COMPANIES HAVE UNIQUE DESIGNS. WHY THEIR CAPS MY HAVE THE SAME GENERIC TYPE OF LOOK THATS NOT COPYING. THEY HAVE DIFFERENT BASES AND CORES, AND EDGES.
I hope in the future you will think more carfeully about what u post. Many of the things you said were incorrect or simply based on opinion. please do some research before you comment in the future.
