Default volkl kendo vs stockli Stormrider 88

Can someone who has skied both the volkl kendo and stockli Stormrider 88
List their opinion of the PROs and CONs of each?

I am 6'-0" / 185 lbs and have been skiing 2014 Kendo for the past couple of years

I am considering moving to the 2016 Stockli Stormrider 88 but am having trouble
finding a decent comparison of these two ski models.

Sorry, but you came to the wrong place for ski advise. Nobody here skis.
Just a bunch of trolls, flamers and the occasional wanna-be-but never-were racers hang out here.
If you need advise go to:

You're welcome!

There are skiers, ex skiers, and loads of recreational skiers. We have our share of poseurs too. I don't now that the technical area is up to what it once was. But my perception is that skis these days don't require any technical data. Short and easy. Just go muscle them around. I'd sell you a pair of 207 Elan RS race stock if you want to go fast?

See what I mean? Pigo used to ski but gave up skiing years ago and became a golfer. Yup, that's right, a freaking GOLFER is hanging around what is supposed to be a ski forum and trying to flog old, obsolete piece-of-crap skis.. Welcome to r.s.a.

I'm still skiing, FWIW

Can't comment from direct experience on the particular models you
mention, but everyone I've talked skies with in the past many years,
skiing any of the Stormrider models, has been pretty much universal in
acclamation.

Anyway, the skier is more important than the ski.

A good skier transcends equipment. That's why I buy all my stuff at
yard sales.

I do not completely agree. I look at some of the skiers in rear entry
boots and skis with binding from 25 years ago, and I think the only
transition they are going to make is for a sled ride.
From my perspective it matters, as racing is 95% mental knowing my
equipment is fresh is an edge.
But like today when you leave a good piece of equipment in the bag and
you hit your arm on the gate where that good piece of arm protector
should have been.
New helmets are required with FIS stickers for racers, and the carbon
fiber helmet does not meet FIS rules and is no longer produced. great
light helmet

Why is it people feel compelled to reply with personal opinions totally unrelated to the question?

We just love to hear ourselves talk don't we?

Thanks for the non-sense-anwers

Well, I did try to warn you. Downhill is one of the worst ones here. He can't ski worth **** but loves to go on and on about his "racing" exploits and hand out all kinds of bad advise.

Anyway, as I said in my initial reply, if you want some real info go to:
