Default Slydog Powder Hounds vs Precision skis. Comparison with photos

Before I purchased I could not find one single side by side photo of the SlyDog's 7" powder hounds next to precision or pilot skis. So I figured I would upload some to show potential buyers down the road what they look like

I can turn while going under 5mph again!!

The powder hound and trail ski's have the same keel, so trail driving is the same..

My roomate was up in Gran Marais last weekend. He said there was a suprisingly small amount of snow, but still rideable I guess.

I think you're trolling.



Put 150 miles on them, 130 on trail, 20 off trail, all I can say is I can't believe I waited so long to order them, all of the reviews online are right, they are wonderful.
