Re: Summit Cone Pariah

Thanks for the clarification. I understand your explanation and it makes sense. At the same time I think it's fair to say that "proportionally" V6s have narrow tails, just from the looks at least... and how they feel when you are finishing a turn. Often- IME- skis that are designed to perform in all...

Re: 3 pin or tts?

I guess this is where the pariah chimes in to highlight the virtues of NNN-BC? Do you think a ski like the Annum is manageable with NNN-BC?
