I mounted my TSTs with Marker Dukes...now I need a recomendation for Skins.

Also how do I, do I need to? notch the tail so that the skin hook stays on?

Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

They have fixed many annoying things over the previous Contour GPS version which I actually returned to REI because I was fed up with it.

Improvements:

1) Battery life seems to much longer.

2) no stupid two button on off system. Now you just slide the record button and it turns on. Before there was this impossible on/off button that you could not easily get to with gloves on...so the battery would just die even though you were not recording.

3) GPS now actually seems to work. I could never get a fix before at the top of Squaw...not sure how that is even possible. Now 90% of my movies have a GPS track along with current speed and altitude.

4) Video quality seems slightly better...but then again the video quality for snow sports has always been awsome.

5) Waterproof case is now included.

All in all, I am much happier....and prefer the side mounting to the go pro which I think looks stupid.

Yes, the Hellbents are very soft...maybe too soft. I am 190lbs and have the 189s....at big speeds the tips really bend up.

Fun ski...but wonder if something stiffer might work better for me.

I bought the 185s and they seem a little long for me. Was wondering if it is appropriate to mount these say +4 or is that not recomended?

I am looking to use these on as my main ski, with the exception if there is more than 6 inches of fresh. Have a pair of Hellbents for that.

NO question the 189. I am 6'4 and 190lbs. I bought the 179, and found them too short....I almost went over the handlebars a few times with them.

I bought the 189s this year, and is so easy to turn, and amazing in anything above six inches of fresh.
