Last season I bought these on sale at 188cm for a touring set up. I mounted them with Plum Guide tech bindings and my boot is a TLT5 Mountain. My first choice was not to get the ski in such a long length due to the extra weight, etc. but being a tall guy with a strong skiing background, I figured I could handle it both on the up and on the descent. And I have.
I'm pretty happy with my purchase. I've been riding these skis hard and they're solid. I should emphasize that when I say ride, I imply that I charge. I ski fast, steep and challenging terrain, these held up everything fantastically. They have enough width at the waist to take on BC powder dumps while not being too big or soft to handle crusty spring conditions. I can initiate quick, confident turns in narrow couloirs or exposed lines where a fall can't happen. If you put in most of your days in the spring then you might want a narrower ski designed for the hard stuff but when you're looking for an all around ski that can let you enjoy those deep days then look no further. K2 have been making skis for a long time and the construction is bomber, the bases are resilient, the edges are solid and although the top sheets are quick to get a nick, it's merely cosmetic.
This may not be the lightest ski of it's kind but what you get is a ski with a great flex pattern, rocker, flat tail, that can take abuse and ultimately, allow you to enjoy the descent.
Feel free to ask questions.
