I just got a set of Rocker 122 skis in the 192 length and I absolutely love them. I primarily ski Killington's tight trees and these are awesome. Due to the rocker they turn on a dime. I actually feel like I'm on a shorter ski in the woods (compared to my 106 under foot 178 K2 Obseths) but on the open trails, esp in pow, the offer the stability of a longer ski. I'm 5'10" 150 lbs. Basin ski shop tried to convince me to get the 184 for here but I'm glad I went longer. If you're familiar with Killington I primarily ski the Fiddle, OL, Anarchy, Julio and all the canyon woods. This ski put the fun into and took all the effort out of skiing. I skid them two full days in a row in last week's dump and never got tired. I also used them out west on a cat trip at Keystone and they took all the speed I could put to them...they shredded the backcountry powder bowls. My only concern is their durability as they feel so light on your feet and I haven't had luck in the past with Salomon's staying together but I will enjoy them while they last.

I'm 5'10 150 lbs. I just got the Rocker 122 in the 192 length and I would never recommend anything shorter in this ski. Out west in deep pow it soared at high speed with NO issues. I just skiid it at Killington, Vt in tight woods and this ski turns on a dime...better than my K2 Revivals and Recoils at 174 cm or My Obseths at 178 cm. I'm so glad I got the 192's. I am thoroughly impressed at how easy this ski is to ski. I never got tired. They have such a light swing weight that the feel like nothing is on your feet but even in the chopped crud on edge they were incredibly stably at high speed. The soft tip and tail also made them easy to rip through bumps....This is an extremely forgiving ski.

I am torn between the Side Seth, Opus, Hellbent and Salomon Rocker 2. I ski'd the Seth and Salomon in deep pow. Both were awesome. The Seth seemed to be more stable due to less tail rocker but was prone to tip dive if you didn't keep some tail pressure. I suspect the Hellbent would ski like a larger version on the Salomon. Anyone have an opinion on these? This was initially a battle between the Seth and Opus...then I ski'd the Salomon and saw the Hellbent. I want something that rips the pow but doesn't tear you apart in the crud getting to the pow. I mainly want these for Mt Baker but I also love to ski trees which was not a problem with the long Seth's or Salomon's.
