Hi folks

Last year I read a fantastic ski-test in the american SKI magazine.
But this year that magazine isn't available in the Dutch mountains
anymore :-(
Could someone please write me some conclusions about the Slalom
and the Giant slalom ski test.
Especialy the conclusions about the Rossignol 7SK and 7XK.

Thank you very much!
Mark.

Both skis got gold medals in the SKI Magazine test this year. If you send
me your mailing address via Email I'll see you get a copy of the test via
snail mail.

Per SKI Mag Sept'94:
GS Tests:
GoldMedals=Dynastar Course CMG,K2 GS Race,Rossignol7XK,Salomon9100Equipe1S,
Volkl P10RS Super (listed alphabetically)

Re:7XK--Very Versatile,Good edgehold on ice.
"GS skis aren't supposed to be this easy to use in all conditions and still
scream precisely down a turny race source. Quick on short turns,holds well,
stable at any speed. Versatile. Felt light and moved extrememly well through
soft snow. With just a little forward ankle pressure, you can ski as relaxed
on the 7XK as you can on any race ski."

SnowCountry rated the 7XK highest for StabilityWhenFlat and for Glide;
it rated very high for LongTurnSteering.

SlalomRace Tests:
GoldMedals=DynastarCoupeS9,K2 SL Race,Rossignol7SK,Salomon9100Equipe3S,VolantZMaxSL,Volkl P10SL.

Re:7SK--Smooth,Stable and friendly at any speed.
This bright yellow ski is so versatile and lenient that you don't have to be an
extremely strong skier to get lots out of it. "This ski turns so easily that you
wonder if should fit in the race category"...lie a great old friend...I can do
most anything on it. It might be the most versatile ski on the market. This ski's
multifariousness comes in trade for that high-strung, superenergetic feeling that
some other elite race slalom skis have, but it's worth it if everyday versatility
is your goal."

SnowCountry rated the 7SK highest for ShortTurnSteering,and for FirstImpression.
It rated very high for EdgeGrip and Ease ofTurning
I remember that they rated it very highly for EdgeGrip and Turning last year.
I bought some and enjoyed them immensely.

Good luck,

to add to this, 7XKs are wonderful powder skis- soft enough and smooth
enough to get nice face shots. 7SKs are a little too lively for deep
powder.
