I have been searching for a good mid fat ski for what seems like a lifetime. Who has skied these two and can compare. I used to have some Mantras for those inbetween days and they were pretty good, but I want something that can be playful in the air, yet still be able to grip on ice, rail groomers and rip bumps. I don't really care about soft snow performance. I am a aggressive skier so want a ski that can be pushed, but does not need to be all the time ( I have plenty of skis for that).
does the 187 measure the full 187? I would really like something between the 179 and 187.
