Per SKI Mag Sept'94:
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.
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.
