Tk: For what it's worth, I'm 5'8", 165 lbs and I have been skiing various models of the Katana for the past 4 years at 190, boot center mount. I (regretfully) live back east now and use them both in the Poconos on the east coast boilerplate and on my 2-3 trips each year back to little cottonwood canyon. Great ski for all conditions. I love the 190. I tried the 184 and found it to be too short. There's a video of me skiing the 2009 model at 190 here: http://youtu.be/igvqUsjDuCI. I have since upgraded to the 2011 model. Hope that is helpful.

The two-star rating is because of the size. The width of the face opening was barely wide enough for the eye span of my 12 month old. It was not big enough for my four year old, five year old, or seven year old (lot's of kids, I know). It was so narrow that it creeped over their eyes on the left and right side and made it difficult to see. After trying them on the kids, I returned three of the four. I kept one for the 12 month old because except for the terrible fit it is well made and warm.

Are you going to be getting any 185s in soon? Also, I've called 7 different ski shops (at Alta, Snowbird, and in the valley) and no one is mounting the SC 108 as a demo. Any chance that Backcountry will start a demo program and mount up the SC 108 in a 185 as the inaugural demo ski? I'd love to try it before I buy it. Thanks.
