Title asks the question in which I would like to know.
What makes a ski manufacturer better than others? I don't want to hear Line is better than Rossignol, Surface is better than Liberty or vice versa.
I want to know what makes skis better than others. I would assume that the majority of companies have skis that are very similar to other companies skis as far as build, design, shape, etc.
I haven't seen any ski alterations that are going to change the industry. So what makes one ski builder better than the rest.
Companies feel free to chime in on this. I guess it comes down to what the main focus of the ski is and what the company can offer better than anyone else.
