I purchased some 190's this fall, slapped some dukes on them and have been totally digging them (I'm 6'2" 205). Usually a tele skier, so AT seems like cheating with these. Very predictable in a wide variety of backcountry conditions. A couple things... I guess I'm used to a bit more sidecut because the first time on a groomer I tried to lay into these like a ski racer to see how they carve. Fell right on my side! Had to carve more conservatively to feel stable. They like to point downhill and prefer smeary/skiddy turns in the steeps. Excellent dampness, did not feel too noodly. Also, the wood core and bases seem bomber, but watch out with those cap skis! Had 2 friends compress edges and the ski was basically toast.
