Pros: Light and super nimble
Cons: Crud can push it around, but I have a ski for crud.
Yeah, the Banana. It is crazy how a ski can just get hot and everyone wants it. The DPS 112 is one of those skis. While DPS uses the RP in the 112 designation, with the RP referring to "Resort Powder" meaning it is a great powder ski that is still a great all mountain ski, I have been just using this as a pure powder ski. What I really like is how nimble the 112RP is in the trees even in the 190cm length. I skied the Pure and the Carbon, both are great skis and while the carbon is a bit lighter and better for climbing, the Hybrid is more stable and a better crud buster for the decent.
As some have said, the Wailer 112 is the ski the S7 wanted to be. While I liked the Hybrid a lot, I bought the Pure.
