I'm 6'2" 220 and been on the 192 swallow tail for 2 seasons. At 135 under foot with a rockered tip I figured flotation wouldn't be a problem, and it isn't. But, what surprised me most about these skis is how maneuverable, lively and versatile they are. There's considerable "pop" in snappy short fall line turns, no issues turning in the tight trees and I've never felt them flutter at speed. They absolutely dominate crud and softer variable snow. The swallow tail is noticeable when arcing on harder snow but it doesn't really detract from the ski's carving abilities.
If it hasn't snowed in while, I'll obviously pull something else out of the quiver but when it starts piling up, I want my Comi's.
Don't let the size fool you
After skiing the EP PRO and New Hellbent as my daily drivers for the last few years, (yes I like and can ride fat skis everywhere) I was looking for a fat ski that was ski able in 2 day old sierra cement) not only do they float like a dream, bust through the thickest chopped up powder you can find, are quicker in tight tree's then both the Ep pro's and Hellbents, but the will rail groomers at mach speed without flapping all over the place. Not to mention you can even spin them in the air because there very light for there size. The Perfect ski for someone who loves fat skis.

How would these fair in the trees and the bumps?
As someone who rides skis with similar dimensions (31m radius, 193cm) I can tell you without a doubt that you will not enjoy these on tree or bump runs. They're good for deep pow and large turns. Look elsewhere.
Dave have you ridden the COMI? I use the 182 as my daily driver in the Tahoe area, I own both Hellbents and Ep pro's and the Comi is quicker in the tree's then both of them, and absolutely RAILS grommers at mach speed, and being that it is fairly stiff it just blast through 2 day old sierra cement, I even take it in the park now and then and it spins a 3 pretty well for such a large ski. I have not touched the hellbents or ep's since I got them. The best powder charging ski made.. And is still a playful ski when the powders gone.
Got to agree with Big Willie style. i got the 192, and it rides like a dream in the forrest as well. Very easily controlled. I Use it as my powder ski, and got the Deathwish as my piste/rough snow ski.

Are these skis skinnable with the swallow tail?
The skis are skinnable with the swallow tail. The tail clip should fit right between the swallow tail. You'll just need to size the skins about 4 inches shorter than you would for a ski without the swallow tail. Given the enormous width of this ski, loosing that length won't make any difference in traction.
