Yeah the slower turn initiation of the SL kinda surprised me considering the center rocker and deep sidecut of the camber sections that it possesses. I can only describe that the Slayblade was more responsive than the SL at the instant where i first bend my front leg to engage the toe-side edge.

I wonder if the SL needs to be more on edge during turning (i.e., at a higher angle)? The Slayblade just seems so responsive given that the zero camber allows the whole edge to engage at once it seems.

I'll give the SL another go at Winter Park late January so see if I just need to dial it in more...
