Default Anyone Running 8" Slydog Skis on G4?

I snagged a rock at the end of last year and tore one of my stock skis. I'm either going to get another stock one or go aftermarket. Anyone running the 8" slydogs?

Yes. They don't steer well. I went to Slp powder pros and couldn't be happier. Michelle at Cannon motorsports will hook you up for a good price.

Slydogs are cool if you want super heavy stiff steering. WAYY to oaggressive of a keel for mountain riding.

Polaris grippers. Cheap and insane improvement in handling over the stock ones. Way less steering effort and the front end doesnt dive around as much. You need the whole ski/rubber/bolt assembly off the polaris. Otherwise they just bolt right up and your off enjoying WAY better performance.

I didn't try the Mohawks. I should add that my riding is all 96% mountain and 4% trail so I don't have much feedback on trail manners.

Have tried both grippers and mohawks. Its not even close. Mohawks all day long.

Remember, the 850 carries a LOT more weight up front than the Axys. If the weight were closer to the same, I'd say go Grippers as that shape is awesome (and still better than stock). But the weight distribution isn't even close to apples to apples , hence a slightly wider ski with less aggressive keel helps the sled ride a lot better.

Thanks JJ. I had some SLP skis on my old Yamaha Mtn Viper back in the day and really liked them. I can't remember the model but they have 2x carbide on the outer ski edges and made the deep and trails so much better. I may have to try these mohawks! Anyone have a line on the best place to work with to get a set (no I haven't asked my dealer)?

EDIT: Looking on the SLP page and I don't see '18 listed when picking saddles. This is my first doo so I assume they are identical to one of the other selections (bottom one is my guess)?

I have an XP and we ride 98% tree and mountains with deep sugar powder. The XP is very heavy on the front and loves to nose dive at the most unexpected times. I have put grippers on and they were better but I now have the 8" slydogs and I really like them Made a world of difference in the XP platform.

I had them on my viper 4 stroke.. completely different I understand.. I was going to try them on my summit, but didn't get a chance. main reason i didnt make time to try them is because i hated them so much. they fought a side hill and were brutal to steer. I liked the grippers much more... so i took the grippers off the viper and put the slydogs back on to sell the sled. I really dont think its necessary to have 8 inch skis on the new summit.
