    Mentioned elsewhere but had a play with the Annexe at SIA and really liked it. Can’t remember the weight but would be a great option for touring.

    I am getting a Shredditor 112 to take to Cham, I'd also take an Annex 98 with Dynafits if there were some around.

    No my info at this stage is only what's in the catalog in the first post.

    But I will def find out as I need a 100-ish touring ski that doesn't weigh a lot.

    cool, thanks. i can see that with dynafits working nicely, so if you end up carrying them (both) i'll be in touch.

    Yeah keep in touch - cos if I don't directly stock something I can get it from the warehouse, often in the same day.

    Will you get good value from those skis? are they beat up? do you rail your turns?

    A) Value will be excellent as they are borrowed

    B) Doesn't matter due to A

    C) I make round turns of all radii in all terrain.

    OIC - I am putting feelers out about Dynafit but will only stock them if the price is competitive.

    Otherwise we're better off getting them from telemark-pyrenees or something as a forum group buy to save on shipping or something like that.

    Hmmm....there's an Annex 98 that I can get my hands on, just finding out if it's cool for me to remount them with Dynafit.

    If so I will take them to Cham

    If not I will take a Blizzard Bonafide or Kabookie.

    Looks like K2 have some interesting, and flamboyant_expletive stupid looking, splitboard/bc developments, you gonna dabble in any of that caper?

    Eventually - discussing our approach ATM. Gotta get the basics right first of course.

    Who knows, BC could be a good way to dip our toes into the SB market.

    Mate, I noted , with some horror, that the catalog does not show Pon2oons.

    As the worlds biggest fan of the Pon2oon, I would be devistated if this iconic K2 ski was dicontinued. I have searched the web and it's not looking good.

    Do you know anything or are you able to make enquiries ?

    Might have to take a lot better care of my current pair, if in fact they are the end of an era.
    Saying that, looking at the catalog, they don't seem to have replaced it with anything either.

    I've seen some reference to the Pontoon, something like 'we're going to take a year off and think it up again' - will see if I can dig that up.

    Same for the Hellbent too I think.

    I might be seeing the local rep this arvo and will ask.

    No need, my Pon2oons are still pretty new, lot of life left in them yet.

    An odd decision to drop them. Like to know the thinking behind that.

    Anything you can find out would be appreciated.

    Certainly the Mutant and the Genome are of interest.

    I'm such a fan of the Pon2oon ( think I've mentioned that before [​IMG] )

    K2 will do something as their biggest skis currently are the Pettitor 120 and Annex 118/Seth Pro Model.

    Like I said earlier I saw some reference to them taking time to reinvent the Hellbent and Pontoon.

    That was my thinking re their widest skis.

    The reinvented Pon2oon is only a couple of years old tho.

    I'll await with interest what they release.

    Have to imagine it will be sooner than later.

    G'day Dossa

    Obviously newer than new as I have been able to find very little about them on the www. What are they underfoot?

    My winter is shaping up very different workwise this year (heaps more time for freeskiing) so hopefully will get over your way for a few turns, if I can afford the Hotham RMB entry fee [​IMG] Will try and hookup with you for a ski and maybe a try of your new planks. What size freerides...small or large?

    Cheers

    Sorry for the late reply Ralphy, I have been hyperventilating for the last month !!!

    Once you've gone fat you'll never look back.

    To quote the late great Shane McConkey " People still to this day, get on the chair with me and look down at my Pontoons and say things like ;"Whoa ! Are those 2 snowboards on your feet ?!" It will be a deep powder day and the guy will be using something totally useless for powder skiing like an 85mm waisted 175 with lots of camber. Where have these people been for the last 5 years ? I can understand it if someone can't afford new powder skis, that is a different story. If they can afford new powder skis and then they go out and buy, like a 90mm waisted ski with normal camber for skiing the powder and thinking that they got the correct ski then it makes me realise just how disconnected most people are to where the sport is at nowadays "

    If he hadn't already said it , I would have ( mind you , bit more credence coming from his lip's [​IMG] )

    PS "Have I ever said how much I love my Pon2oons ????"

    Skied the pettitors at a demo weekend last year, but they seem impossible to find anywhere? Anyone know who'll have a set of the shreditor 120's or last years pettitors in australia, or will ship to australia?

    redleader - send me a PM or email admin at aussieskier dot com- I should be able to help out. Just need to confirm whether it's the Shredditor 120 or last year's Pettitor that I can get. But from what I can gather I can get my hands on one of them!
