It just starts earlier every year. Looks like he has commitments from KD, D3, Connelly, Goode, and HO. Apparently, the SIXAM is the same, and he tested it last year. I know there are lots of people that for one reason or another don't really like Schnitz's style, but I, for one, like following the test.
I'd probably send him one if I was mfg...
It just makes you start thinking you need a new ski when you probably don't.

Who is this Schnitz guy?
He's got some screwy ideas for sure (let's put a building over a ski lake because it will save on evaporation and people would pay me $2500 / year to ski at 3AM). His theory on coordinate skiing is interesting, but if this Dr. Jim guy is sooo good why have I never heard of him? And although it's nice to have an 'unbiased' test I'm not sure that how this guy skis has much relationship to how I ski... What does this guy do for a living? The website is interesting but a mess (organizationally) and I'm not sure what to make of it all.
Fitz I bet that site looks like a day in the life of schnitz
He used to sell perfect pass and other stuff cheap and I believe that all he does is ski for a living doing clinics and stuff.
His claim to fame is that he invented the adjustable fin (or was it the wing? OR both?)
I can't remember but it appears that as many people like him as dislike him.
Be sure to read his soap opera okeheelee turns on his site, it's funny.
either he is a huge pain in the *** or those locals are some real jerks. (it probably all lands somewhere in between if I had to guess)

This guy can write a bunch of stuff! It is pretty interesting to read.

Couldn't find the Soap Opera on his site... Found a link after 15 minutes of digging, but it was no good.
I guess this guy is an expert and knows his stuff. But he could really use a course on PR and tact by the looks of it.
Heck, even a simple white paper on his coordinate method of skiing would be better than 4 months of blog posts on why it will dominate without quite enough infomation to let me understand what he is proposing. I guess I just don't get it. :confused:
Since this guy invented the foil and movable fin that begs a question as to whether people move their fins around a lot... I'm going to start a new thread so don't answer this question here.
