Another test of the extremes. No sidecut… no problem. Or so i though… 

This was a test ski for a few reasons. Firstly i used a fiberglass that is sprayed out flat and the strands look like spaghetti. Contrasted to the fabric woven fiberglass used in the industry. I called it Omni directional. The idea was that the ski could load up energy in all directions, vs traditional glass that had very obvious linear flex patterns. Turns out that part of the test worked just fine. 

The real test though was to see if a wedge shaped ski would work at all. In theory it would allow the tip to float and tail to sink in any type of soft snow condition. That aspect of the idea was correct. In the pow was the only place these guys functioned at all unfortunately. As soon as you hit a groomer they took you where ever they wanted to take you. Nearly unturnable, unreliable, inconsistent, horrible skis to take to a resort. On the wall they went. Another lesson logged.
