Pros: Versatility, Light weight, stable, good edge hold
Cons: Not quite the charger the BMX108 is
Demo'd the TX107 after speaking to the rep about the fact he uses them regularly on soft snow resort days. Seeing that he is about 6'4" and north of 230lbs they had to be pretty solid. I had also been skiing with a good friend who owns and really appreciates the TX87. I could tell from his skiing on the TX87 that Kastle was making a much more of a skier ski than many touring companies so I felt I owed them a go.
We'll not a full review but from my 1/2 dozen runs in Whistler in challenging mixed windblown, firm groomers and crud that they are a solid ski with more power and edgehold than I would have thought. If I didn't know I wouldn't have told you I was on a touring ski. Egde hold was consistent and on par with most other ski companies normal offerings. This is a well executed ski with great manners - mid stiffness and traditional tail and the tip rocker and light weight made it very easy to work in tight places and rewarding to ski well.
These 107mm Kastle's were far superior to the 89mm Moments I toured with the year before and the tips held up to higher speeds and more aggressive skiing far better. I barely had to back off at all.
This ski could make a lot of people who would may never tour happy.
