After picking up my Wailer 112's last season I started looking at the Cassiar 80 and Wailer 99's for an everyday ski.  I was originally leaning towards the 99 because it was available in the hybrid construction. but Marshall from DPS was able to offer me a pair of hybrid Cassiars from a limited run they did in the past.  Just like my 112's the 80's have top notch fit and finish.  I have 6 days on them so in a variety of Midwestern conditions ranging from hard pack to mashed potatoes and I am extremely happy with them.  It's been a few years since I've owned a ski this narrow and I am enjoying it.  It rails turns on the groomers and the light weight construction makes it very playful in the small bumps and softer snow I've had so much of.  So far I have been completely thrilled with the skis and I look forward to many more days on them.
