animatorInteresting how you feel about the Stranger. I got on it after wanting to ski it for almost a year and came away disappointed. It’s definitely not a bad ski, but I didn’t find it to be super awesome on edge, or especially playful (despite how @lame.downer on IG makes them look). I liked the Sakana a whole lot more, but maybe I’m weird
Yeah, it's definitely not for everyone. I thought it was a pretty good compromise between edge hold and playfulness, similar to the Sakana except twin tipped. Idk, before trying the stranger the Sakana was my dream spring skiing ski, but maybe the Stranger is more jibby and fun.
I'm gonna get some more time on both skis before making a decision.
