Does anybody know much about the Faction Candide 3.0. I'm interested in a lighter weight ski to put some AT bindings so I can tour in the lake tahoe area. The Candide 3.0 seemed like a good option becaues supposedly its a super light ski. However, I"m worried about this recycled plastic core on the ski. Seems like any ski that tried to use non-wood cores have always been a failure. Anybody know anything about these?
Anyways, I"m 5'6" 150 lbs, ski at squaw, and want a lighter weight (not necessarily tour-specific) ski for the back country and some resort days. Any other suggestions would be welcome. Bindings would be Fritschi free-ride pro.
