Hah. Remember when the first Seth Pistol came out? 95mm underfoot. Everyone: "That's too fat! There's no purpose for it, it's gimmicky. The Rocket AK at 86mm is as wide as any ski will ever need to be."
Wonder if the generation of skiers who have come by this "95mm is narrow" mindset rely overmuch on current ridiculous-fat ski design to ski pow.
