Sorry, here's the fixed one
1. graphics? do you prefer pucking blood skulls ala hellbent, hand paint ala 4frnt, crazy neon colors ala new ks stuff, techy graphic designs ala lhasa pows, or simple designs ala dps? do you care?
Graphics aren't a big deal at all
2. ski finishing - ie awesome structure, ceramic edge, flat/railed? matched camber/rocker & flex? do you know how to actually check for this stuff? if it was off, would you notice or care?
Not really sure what this question is all about, but i wouldn't buy a pair of skis there weren't solidly built
3. shaping? prefered sidecut/shape? rocker lines? etc.
I like having a good amount of side cut, but overall shape isn't that big of a deal, as long as the turn radius isn't too big/small, i like a radius between 18 and 25 meters
4. flex and flex options? stiff, medium or soft? does it matter if there are countless options?
flex options are good, personally i like a stiffer ski
5. weight? do you like a super heavy ski (damp)? super light ski (reactive), do you tour? do you care?
I like a lighter poppier ski, but still able to go really fast and still be stable, i do tour and the lighter the better for that, but i'd sacrifice weight for skiing performance
6. technology? do you care about pushing the design envelope? do you specifically like to support companies that are doing something cool/new/different?
I don't really care too much if a technology is new, but i might not buy a radical new technology before i knew that it would hold up, A technology I really like, and is interesting to me is the mix of regular camber underfoot combined with rocker
7. price? how price motivated are you? will you only buy on mad closeout? will you pay full pop for something truly lust-worthy? how many skis do you buy a year? how long do you expect them to last?
Of Course the lower the price the better, but i'd be willing to pay a greater amount for a ski i know would be good and last a long time, but typically 800 or under is my range
8. durability? do you care about the hardness of your bases? do you like or not like die-cuts underfoot? sidewall or cap - care?
I am a fan of sidewall construction, i like the feel of the skis better, but the sidewall/cap mix of some skis looks like a cool idea that could be very good, other than that i like i ski that can hold up well, i don't beat the shit out of my gear but durability is good
