there has been a lot of controversey over whether or not they are different, or the same. I for one talked to a pretty reliable source deep in salomon, who told me they were working all the defects out, and that the skis the pros had werent even done, they just had different graphics, and that the new ski would be done at a later time, and they were also working to make the suspect and dumont lighter.
salomon has been in this buisness a long time, and im sure they know that witht he economy the way that it is, people will need a ski they can rely on, and one that will last them some time. and last years salomon suspect, and dumont, witht he amount of manufacturing defects that they had, can not, and will not be the same if they want to survive in this time. thats my opinion and what i have heard.
the 07-08 dumont ski get outstanding reviews, and was probably my favorite ski of all time. my guess to why they do not go back is a lot of time was probably spent on the making of the new high end salomon skis, and it would be a major set back, no matter how nice the 07-08 salomon skis were, due to the time and money spent on the new skis. what you heard about the shop pressing could be very true. last years salomon were not all riddled with defects, from what i heard, many of the skis produced in the begining of the year had the defects, and unfortunatley many people get there skis in the begining of the season. as the year went on they steadily worked towards ridding the ski of defects, but that obviously did not work to well. the basic design of the ski is outstanding, and once it is perfected it will be one of the best out there, but until then just make sure they are a product you want to spend that much money on, and if they arent, i would recomend investing in armada, the skis are similiar to that of salomon, and absolutley kill the park.
