Summary:
The Laser GS is my first "proper" carve ski. My first sidecut ski was the K2 Merlin 5, but at 198cm it was a long turner by recent standards. I decided to buy the Stocklis after making about three turns on my first run with them. As an "old school" feet together type of skier for over 25 years, I had to learn technique virtually from scratch to take advantage of these remarkable skis. It's worth noting that ski boot manufacturers are starting to make boots to work with carve skis, some over 30 per cent softer in forward lean than before. These boots would be excellent with the Laser GS as it turns harder and harder as you pressure the front of the ski. I LOVE my Stocklis!

Summary:
WOW....WOW!!! To say this is the greatest ski ever made is an understatment. I am a lightweight (145 lbs, 6 ft, ski 192), but with better than average technique to make up for weakness. This skis loves to turn and turn hard in every condition especially sub-zero frozen coral (Cannon's famous terrain). I tried bumps with these, but they threw me out of the saddle faster that I could figure out what was going on (I suck at bumps anyway). If you want to ski at mach speeds with 110% confidence, this is your ski. Study current World Cup GS technique before you go out (keep both skis on the snow at all times), and you will get the most out of these.

Summary:
the ski you need to get if you want to bring your racing to the next level. will make you better with practice. laminates don't suck like other skis hmm rossignol. durible. all the gimmics that other companies use to sell there skis that aren't true well stocklis are true and the skis are awesome the graphite bases rule the edges are above and beyond what ever else you can ski. there real world cup skis unlike that guy who said there not they are. To sum up this ski through words is very difficult you must go out and try them i saw a pair to rent in vail so there is not excuse just go try them the prices aren't that bad and you should have to pay over 700 dollars for them. It's worth it trust me

Summary:
Best Race ski i have ever raced, has won me many races and is a very fun ski. wether it is a NORAM or a nastar race these skis will get you to the finish line fast and first. The sidecut allows for awsome GS turns anywhere on the mountain. Very stable at all times so if needed these can be used as Super-G skis. I ski 198's and they handle like 190's of other skis thats how well they are made. I would never go back to the big name brands after racing this ski.

Summary:
Needless to say, the best skis in the world. I have tried Rossis, Salomon, Volkl and other famous ones you can hear about, but those can not compete with Stockli. First day I skied Laser GS, the skis were ahead of me all the time. Those are that fast. Still, I could make tight radius turns (I'm using 186cm - 23m radius), becuase of its incredibly strong edge grip on the slopes. Even on a hard icy condition, I could rely on them as if I were on lightly packed snow. Exactly the same hand made GS skis that World Cup racers use, but it is not just an advertisement, only. You will really want to challenge some racing events in your local area, someday, with the best skis you can get in the world.
