I just wanted to send out a positive vibe to Scott and Dawgcatching.com on my recent purchase. I ordered a pair of Cochise 185 this past Tuesday and had them in hand on Friday afternoon. Everything was perfect with them, bindings centered and on the line for my bsl. I was surprised they arrived so quickly and had them on the snow the next day at Sugarbowl.
As for the ski...it rocks! We only had a couple inches of fresh, so it was dust on crust till the sun got to it, but for a 108 under foot it handled really well. It is definitely a ski to stay on top of and get it going speed wise. On the groomer and firm snow, it was ok, would I rather have my 78's underfoot...sure, but I still had the new ski novelty and was determined to test it out. Once I found some soft snow these skis came alive. The faster I went the better they felt, truly a confidence building ski. I'm definitely not an expert ski reviewer, but they felt stiff until I got them moving, after that they were smooth and felt great over a variety of snow conditions on the day. In time, I'll post up more feedback on the ski....
Overall, I'm super pleased with everything and again I want to say thanks to Dawgcatching for the excellent deal and service! I couldn't be more happy about the new ride!
