Rocker 2 115 or 122 for big guy? (or am I off base) - Page 2

Looking for skis similar to the Cochise suggested above I read about the Head Kiss of death on which apparently skis very very similar according to multiple people here.   I ordered a pair in 191 from Level nine with the Tyrolia LD12's.   I also ordered a set of their cheap Head Shape 177's for chasing the kids and will get rid of my little Freerides.    If I can't rent a really fat powder ski I will watch ASOgear and Levelnine for something really wide.   The Coreupt Watch Out's at ASO look ridiculously awesome but not a lot of info online.   Now I'll have to take some lessons for the new to me style of skis to get up to speed.

 

Thank you all for the suggestions and previous contributions to other threads.

I'm surprised you bought the Kiss of Death as the ugly graphics keep most people away. I would have recommended it if i knew you were looking at older skis. For the price you paid you have an excellent ski. It has been my daily driver for the past 2 seasons and am thinking of buying another set at those prices. Unlike a lot of people here I wouldn't ask the wife first, she will give the wrong answer anyway!

Yes they're ugly, hopefully they ski better than they look.   These were the two threads (as well as your comments on other threads) that sold me on them.

Seems strange that they got no love while the Cochise has a lot of positive buzz everywhere.

 

Did you find much difference between the Boneshakers you demoed and your everyday KOD's or were they too close in size to feel a difference?
