This ski promises to be the "skinny" Wailer 112RP. As a 112RP owner I'm not so sure, but that's just from looking at the specs. DPS did NOT just slim down the 112RP. On paper it seems more like the kinship between the Wailer 99 and the 112RP is similar to that of the Rossi S3 to the S7.
The Wailer 99 has dimensions of 121-99-108 with a sidecut of 18m for the 184cm length. So it's actually a longer radius cut on a shorter ski than the 190cm 112RP. It has quite a pintail design with only 9mm of difference between the waist and the tail dimensions (tail cut). Also when comparing the rocker length specs it looks to have about half that of the 112RP.
DPS does a demo tour every year and I'm hoping they'll have this ski available, but I'm not holding my breath. Most likely won't get on them until SIA unless I actually pull the trigger and buy them. They're $799 in hybrid construction and $1199 for the pure.

Hopefully Marshal can give us the low down on how these ski in comparison to the 112RP.
