These literally do everything! For context:I'm 6'1, 180lbs. I got the 192s and mounted them with DynaDuke swap plates right on the line and have skied them with Dynafit FT12s and Marker Dukes. For boots I've used BD Factor 130s with a World Cup Booster Strap. I left the factory tune (whatever it is) - its decent, but i might put a 1 degree base / 2 degree side edge next year.They totally dominate east coast hardpack. They don't really pop out of a turn as much as a race ski, but they have excellent edge hold. You can really get some good angles and hold an edge through huge fast turns. The 192 sometimes feels a bit unwieldy in east coast woods, but it's definitely manageable. I'v found I can ski pretty much all but the hardest of bumps with these skis. The large radius really lets you get after it in the steeps. This is the longest turning ski I've ridden and I'm totally sold on this shape. They're burly enough to plow through wet, heavy snow and bust through rain and sun crusts and damp enough to just blast straight over crud and chop. I have not skied any real blower powder on these yet. I did ski some high density fresh and they did really well. I'm really thinking that these will be my go-to skis for basically everything except deep powder days and early season / pre-season. Basically if you ski them with confidence, they'll do whatever you want.
