    I wouldn't worry about it, I think they are both one in the same.

    Did you get them from Sierra or Ebay? On the Epic forum Sierra is reputable place.

    Except

    On the ski on the side, it says

    voelkl.com

    Not volkl.com

    For the website.

    Both URL's go to the volkl website just slightly different ones
    Did i get screwed here?
    What is voelkl vs volkl?

    Some one please put an end to my panic!
    Don't panic. It's the same thing -- Voelkl/Volkl. The "oe" is a way of Anglicizing the umlaut that the German alphabet has.

    Hey Guys

    Quick update

    So got all my gear friday and hit the slopes. These skis are awsome!

    I had a great time and felt more comfortable then before. I started to learn how to carve a bit and i cant even remember what a snow plow is? So life is good. We did some blues and challeged mysefl a bit. My only issue was that i fell one time pretty damn good and twisted the hell outa my right knee. Im not sure what i did but it hurt. Took me outa the loop for the day. Today i woke up and and it hurt a bit so i stuck my knee brace on and just ahve been taking it easy. It doenst hurt from walking or anything but if i croucth forward and twist to the right or left or hits just a bit. Im hopeing its just sore, it felt like a pull sensation. I hope it wasnt my ACL as ive heard lots of people discussing that. All in all, im happy and had a great day. Boots are good, skis are great. Thanks for all the suggestions on what to pick out!

    ....

    Yeah,
    Sometimes it's better to take it easy, with new gear, and go at the fundamentals for a while, and get so you can ski the heck out of the easy trails...not only for your skills, but also for the body to get some exercise before tackling anything tricky...

    Its been good. Thanks for all the adivce. Ive been able to have some fun latley but not as much as id like. I finally got to "carve" for a second in ME this past weekend. What a cool feeling, you could really tell you were like really flying it was kind of neat. Will just keep practiceing and hopefully get better. Thanks though "big" you saved me from killing myself on the 5 stars lol

    Thanks for the update and good for you. It takes time.....as in years. Just keep at it and it will all come together eventually. I'm still never happy with my skiing.
    I ski double black diamonds.
