I agree with this. Every ski is different and it’s fun to try different stuff. I’ve never demoed a pair of skis before buying. I’m a very price-oriented buyer.
New skis usually go like this for me:
1st day - not quite sure how I feel about them
2nd day - start to love them
3rd day - fucking hate them
4th day - start to like them again
5th day - love the skis
SkylineGTR_R32I used to be scared of getting new skis. I would only buy one kind of ski because I didn’t want to get skis I would hate. Biggest mistake ever. There’s hardly a bad ski, every ski just does it’s own thing. I always buy used skis because if I hate them I’m not out a lot of money and if I love them I buy a new pair of them the follow season
