IanAvery-Leafthose look like the most generic comp ski possible with a Head logo slapped on. Why are you so set on these skies specifically?
Greg_KBoth the Caddy and Framewall are narrow skis in today’s market and they don’t have beefy edges for rail abuse but they are fantastic skis for carving on harder snow, blasting moguls and hitting kickers. Just don’t expect super long lifespan if using for urban or rails as they use fast race bases over slower but beefier extruded bases.
The only difference between the Framewall and the Caddy is that the Framewall has a 360 degree, wrap around sidewall which adds a bit of weight, a bit of topsheet durability and stiffens it up a hair over the Caddy. Same core etc. The Caddy is a good mix of comp ski stability that’s more playful than a comp ski.
Use a Framewall myself as my “hard snow ski” and it’s fantastic. Blister review of the Caddy.
Greg_KNo, not WAY softer, just a bit softer. Caddy still a solid ski!
