This ski test had nothing to be a success, the ski haven’t been wax or tuned wince the late 80’s, I mounted the bindings randomly on the ski and the tips of the skis had scales on them (I used those skis to test my waxless matrix somewhere last year).
I skied similar skis at a younger age and moved on to smaller and shorter radius skis throughout the years convince I was doing the right thing. I was wrong. Most modern skis are made of wood and fiberglass now, but back then polyurethane foam sandwiched by metal sheet was a common thing. The Dynastar has a incredible stiffness and super long edge contact. Its gives you grip on pretty much any type of snow and ice. God I miss those 2m+ ski length. It is stable, super fast, the only downside is that you need some ski ability to make it turn. Like Johnny says, the only reason why ski industry made modern skis shorter, with rockers and short radius I to make those puffy jacket skiers look good whatever their ski level.
I just can’t wait until spring to give those skis a try in the soft bumpy runs. Until then, I might be able to get my hand on a Head GTO 2012 200cm which would be the perfect compromise between 30+ years skis and modern technology.
Here’s the video of the ski test.
