I'm definitely keeping the Supermodel.  Despite it's length, it's very
quick from edge to edge, and superb in the trees.  Your thoughts are
my plans: Frontier for hard, groomed conditions; Supermodel for everything
else.  (I now think the Supermodel is a better all-arounder than the
the Cascade would be a good replacement but why throw out the Supermodel
when it's in good shape and works well).
