tomPietrowskiI always like reading all the reviews In magazines and I use those to base what I am going to demo first. But demoing Is what I trust. I won't buy a ski I have not skied as you have no idea what up are getting. Reviews here can be useful but I fin so much inconsistency here as people givin the reviews have simply not skied enough differnt skis to give a good opinion. I would love to see a new schoolers demo tour. Get some brands involved then take a demo tour round places where it's harder to try skis. It would be both a goo way to meet other ns members but also test some skis.
This season I'm really stocked on the skis available. There are 3 pairs I want from Salomon alone this season so I would say this is a good year to be buying kit.
I should have added an option for "I only buy what I've demo'ed". Although thats a bit more specific to hard goods. Unless your demoing jackets, pants, googles, etc.
Also should have added "I only buy last years shit".
Mr.BishopI know, I'm just giving you shit. Want me to edit the poll?
You can if you want, although i added it in the () under consumer review. If you do, also add options for the other 2 mentioned above.
