Cool name, even better Ski

While this is my first pair of light, backcountry powder skis - I absolutely love them. Sure, there are lighter skis out there, but they will be below the 110mm width. I finally made the switch from heavy, beefy Duke bindings and paired these with Dynafit Radical FT bindings, what an amazing set up. I just look at this ski and its awesome graphics - it makes me want to get out there ! I am 6ft and went with the 186 - a great fit. I could have gone 196, but I do some tighter tree skiing and jump turns in chutes, so I went 186. Besides, I don't even think I could fit the 196 in my car or on my sled ski rack! Those would be very long! Not worth the extra weight either. My absolute favorite pair of skis.

Yo Brap, I'm about 180lbs. There is a good amount of rocker. You could almost go either way. Depends where you are skiing and how fast you like to go. Open bowls and not too many trees, go 196. 186 might be better if you are looking for a one quiver ski, though.
