Familiarity: I've used it several times

Was looking to replace my 2008 K2 Work Stinx 181s, my previous versatile, all-around tele ski. Mounted these in the 180 length with 22 Designs Vice bindings (previous bindings on Work Stinx).

Compared with the Work Stinx, the edge hold on these is noticeably better (metal sheets) and faster edge to edge. A bit less forgiving than the Work Stinx but more precise (no chatter) and better overall control. SUPERB ski on moguls and compact turns. Great overall telemark ski for the East.

Got a pair of 192 cm Watea 101s from Tramdock for $330, mounted them with BD O2 bindings and they've been a great in-between ski between my Work Stinx 181s (general workhorse) and BD Megawatts (best in >1 foot)

192 means they're not the fastest to turn, but they work great for 8-16" days where they float on the new snow and RAIL through long, arcing turns. stable for straight-lining and landings. Harder work to turn on hardpack, but that's understandable given the 192 length
