Looking for a new ski for off piste in Chile this summer and Europe next season. Seen a good deal on the 198 Katanas, but am a little worried they'll be too big. I currently ski AK JJs in 195 (left them in Japan), but they're heavily rockered and soft, the Katanas aren't. I have the Gotamas in 185 and love them, but want something bigger and stiffer (and the Gotamas are also pretty much destroyed). I'm 187cms and 85kgs, I ski pretty fast and like to jump. I'm a fulltime instructor (200+ days a year) and will probably compete in FWQ events on whatever ski I buy.
I'm relatively sure this is the right ski for me, just not sure about the 198s, anyone got any ideas?
