Trying to decide between these two skis to purchase this winter, it would be my everyday ski, 6'3 180lbs. Most skiing would be in MT and CO.
Rocker 2 108 or 4frnt Devestator
The Devastator is the replacement for the Turbo. The Turbo is one of my favorite skis of all time. It's not great at anything, but it is comfortable everywhere on the mountain.
The new ski has matching sidecut/rocker, and is a touch wider. It's also a bit longer then the 189. But at 6'3, I wouldn't be concerned about the extra size.

I'm looking for a wider ski with all-mtn chops to replace my Head Rock 'n Rolls. I've been skiing the RnR's in a 180 for three years, and loved 'em. But...I demo'd them originally in a 173 and they were strangely just as fun, but a little quicker and more maneuverable in the bumps and steeps. These are very light skis, easy and versatile as well. I've taken them in pow, trees, bumps, race course, ripping groomers, chunked up off-trail stuff. They're really excellent...I'm just curious about going to a wider ski underfoot to get a little more float in pow. These are the widest I've ever owned, but now it's time to go fatter.
Started looking at the 2015 Devastator. Any opinions on this for a one-quiver ski for pow and groomed? Seems like it'd be very good from what I'm hearing.
Size-wise, I'm tempted to look at the 174, even though most would probably suggest a 184. I'm 6'0", 175lbs. I just feel like the shorter ski will make it easier, and I want easy.
Thoughts from those who've skied the Devastator?
