What's REALLY interesting is that Lee Quaglia is an east
coast guy. In fact a Killington guy.

He's talking about edges engaging on skis that I would
have thought would 'smear' turns.

Shoot, I've owned skis with 'rocker' the shop tech
said they were 'bent'.

I've pretty much dismissed rocker skis for EasternFirm(tm)
but this suggests that I may have to go give Lee
a call.
