TwigOut of interest, can you confirm they changed the 2.0 flex for 2021? I know they changed up the 3.0/4.0 and they are both much softer in the tip/tail, I had two pairs of the 3.0s (178 for park, 184 for everything else). But the reason I, (and Dan/Antti from talking to them) mostly ride the 3.0 vs 2.0 is that the 2.0 has always been much stiffer and I find them less fun (or in the case of vs the older 3.0, much less rockered). That includes the '21 2.0 samples I tried (but I believe those may have been new topsheets on the '20 skis) but they could have been switched up for production, so I'm wondering if they were?
Based on the lower weights vs Factory spec on your review pair of 2021 Prodigy 2.0 and 2021 Candide 1.0 makes me wonder if they were an early/pre-production pair for them. All of the Faction skis this year seem to measure VERY close to quoted spec and if anything they are a bit heavier. Your Candide 1.0 were about 75 grams lighter than spec and your Prodigy 2.0 were 100 grams lighter than 2021 spec and exactly 2020 weight spec.
The Prodigy line used to be stiff tip to tail and this year all models have more playful tip/tail flex on all models. The 2.0 didn’t change dimensions etc like the 3.0 and 4.0 did for 2021 but with the switch to the Fisher plant, weight went up 100 grams and I was told flex is softer on the tip/tail like the new 3.0 and 4.0. All are still firm underfoot but not as firm on the extremes like before.
Of course I just saw someone online mention the Candide line “getting lighter next year” so I inquired and they once again changing the Candide line for 2022. Candide 1.0 slightly narrower and more directional and the 2.0 and 3.0 stay the same dimensions. The big news is they are moving production to different production factory(well known and solid one) but the weights on the Candide line are dropping back to 2020 and earlier levels. 1.0 and 2.0 drop 400 grams and the 3.0 drops about 200 grams. Pondering buying back ups as I love the heavier 2021 versions.
So not sure if the Prodigy line will change weight/flex as well for 2022 but I’m assuming it will be softer tip/tail than the Candide line? 🤷
