Comments: Skied the Karma in conditions listed above. Ski did very well in the crud and on the groomers, except it was too short. No 185's were available to try, and they would have been a much better length. The ski is probably 20 percent softer than the AX4, but felt stiffer than the 724 PRO. I liked it much more than I liked the 724 PRO. The 724 PRO (184cm) has too soft of a tip and tail for me. The Karma made great turns on the groomers and in the crud. It turns quicker than the AX4, and yet doesn't get deflected in the crud like the 724 PRO. If pushed, I was able to make slalom turns on the groomers with it, but it wants to run, make big GS turns in the crud and powder. I'll be getting a 185 in this ski next year. I'll be skiing it next week also, and I'll update the review after that.

I understand this ski is replacing the V-Pro. Do you know what it's dimensions are?
