Good times!

Dig it! How do you like the world cups outside of the bumps? I ski the classics, and they are a super workout in the crud and corn - otherwise I love them. Are the world cups any better?

I love my F17 WCs everywhere. They won't be any better than the Classics in the crud, but I find them much better in the bumps. They don't carve quite as quickly, but hold an edge really well. I can carve a nice set of railroad tracks on the groomers with them, though it takes more work than the Classics. But in the bumps I find them much more comfortable than the Classics. I'm kind of oldschool... my turn is purely carved from the tip like modern mogul technique, but I like the straighter profile of the WC in general. Also - one of my Classics broke after about 80 days. I must be well over 100 on my WCs with no trouble. Just my .02. Blanton may have more words of wisdom.

On an amusing sidenote, I even ski deep pow on my F17s. I get made fun of, until people try to keep up :lol:

I like them, great skis. As with all Harts they have to be stone ground and tuned prior to skiing. The Classics are a better ski for 95% of the people interested in the F17s. Easier to carve and more forgiving in the bumps. I have yet to see a broken pair of World Cups... mine are probably close to 150 days on hard pack snow too.

Nice work on the video, multiple angles is good! Looks like a lot of fun.

What else do you guys ski on that works well in crud, corn, etc. that you also like in the bumps? I love my f17 classics, but they really suck in heavy stuff...!
