"NOT MADE IN CHINA"

That 's great.
It can be the name for a ski company.

Ditto. And I love the graphics. But if you keep going in that direction you're gonna end up with paisley skis. :D

Is it tough to get the fabric laid with no wrinkles at all?

no it's not too difficult. i usually start from one end and unroll the fabric smoothing out any wrinkles along the way.

What weight is the carbon? Did you guys do something different with the tips? In the last action pic it looks like you can see a white tipspacer.

the white stuff on the tips in the action photo is snow.

Ahh, it just looked really symmetric and looks kinda like the metal tips on the Volkl Mantras.
