I'm just curious. The 185 and 175, big difference between those two sizes, mine weigh a ton, can't imagine the 185 for a person under 175 pounds, me 140.
Never skied them, still in the plastic. Spent some time on rockered skis last winter (Obsethed, Pontoons, BD Justices) and fell in love with them for deeper conditions. Didn't do my homework and bought the 09/10 Huges on line in early summer not knowing I was not getting any rocker. Couldn't return them since rechecking the ad, they clearly stated the year and made no claims about camber (which cannot be said about all ads for these model skis) - be careful.
Mine actually seem to have rather healthy camber as opposed to minimal. I'm sure they're great skis, but if I'm making my big upgrade (from Solly Sandstorms / 101mm / traditional) for next season I'd like to take advantage of the latest design technology that's out there.
I weigh about 180-185 and will go with 185s. I'd be curious to compare their weight with other skis since I didn't notice anything unusual picking them up, but I've got some Griffons to mount them with, so that should help with the weight a bit.
