Gketcham, that’s why I started this post. From what I’ve read so far, it’s so expensive I wonder how much Head uses. I haven't seen other big manufacturers advertise it in their skis yet. Can’ ...

I pressed the ski, did all the finish work on it, base grind, edge sharpening, wax, etc. I put the titanal on the top layer. I split the titanal in half. The titanal did extend over the bindings area ...

Update... I used the router to trim the edge of the sample piece I made and it does work ok. I took a minute shaving off, a bit scary, I think it dulls the router bit pretty quick. Obviously bits of A ...

For anyone who has used titanal or any metal in their layup... How does the router handle cutting through the metal when beveling the sidewall?? Thinking of using full width titanal. Figured I’d pos ...

Same. I use the adjustable Toko for base filing and Toko Edge tuner for edges.

Tuning does make a big difference. I always keep the skis sharp and waxed. No need to go over board unless you’re on ...

I use full flax and carbon. I use uni carbon about 4-5 ounces. I use a 2inch strip of carbon down the middle. Skis are damp but carbon gives them good rebound. And I use ash for the core.

Welcome back. Check out Bcomp for cores and flax instead of fiberglass. Entropy for resin. Prepreg has resin in it that gets activated when heated. You’d need to know what’s in the prepreg, gases ...

Thanks. Found the video. In the same video he does the layup,it’s interesting that the titanal is not next to the wood core, the CF is. That’s the opposite that I’ve seen on many of the race and ...
