Great ski overall
I've had great luck with my pair of Nunataqs. They are super lightweight (great for uphill) but on the hardpack they still hold their edge like Volkl's always do (great for downhill). The moderate rocker keeps you afloat but still gives you enough edge contact to feel great in harder conditions. I even took these on a few groomers when I first got them and they seriously carve like the Mantra I've been on the last few years. Without metal and with a hollowed out core these are super light. Not sure how long they'll last without much backbone but I didn't feel any loss of snap/response throughout 25 days on them last season.
Not sure why BC.com says they're twin tips because they certainly are not. There is some rocker on both tip and tail, but again, not a twin tip by any means. You can easily bury the tail for an anchor
I did not get the Volkl skin but these work fine with the BCA skins I bought and cut. I'm using this ski with a Dynafit binding. It's a great set-up; super light weight and people drool when I take them out.
I ski in San Juan's outside Telluride and this ski has been great (too bad I can't say the same thing about our snowpack last year) for the winter I've put them through.
I got the 178 and I weight 160-5 with gear and am 6' tall. This was definintely the proper size for me
