Ok, couldn't hold out any longer. After slipping around on ice with my beat up old Atomic Nomad Whiteouts this weekend I took the plunge and broke out the Powertrack's.
Spring conditions so ICY in the morning- reminded of skiing on man made snow in the east coasts when I was a kid during the bad years of the early 80's. As it warmed up turned to soft then slush by 2 pm.
First off REALLY glad I got the 186's. Held well on the ice although did chatter a bit if I got going real fast and held the turns to long. Overall no problem. They are light and responsive. Great for longer turns and quick for short turns.
In the soft and slush they were also really nice. Quick edge to edge. No problems. Even skied some soft bumps. Did not feel to long. Had no problems turning where I wanted to.
Overall very psyched about these boards. Highly recommended. 186 is the way to go for someone my size and skill. Wish I had taken them out earlier :).
