I'm looking to twerk my quiver.

I presently have 3 favorites:

Motive 86 (182 cm): really like the flex in bumps, nice carver but at my weight, I would have like it better at lets say 186 cm because it is much shorter than what it says ( mesure 179 cm for my 182 cm compared for my 184 cm Kendo that are 182 cm)...But should be perfect for someone lighter than me...best feel of the 3 on softer snow and bumps...

RTM 84 (182 cm): the best edge grip of the 3 but still have to get used to the almost absent camber...

the new Kendo (184 cm): best of the 3 in trees, 2nd in bumps, 2nd in edge grip

I'm 6' and over 215

Thanks man. Sounds like since I'm a few inches shorter and only 140-145 lb, I should probably look at the mid 170's lengths for these skis.

Time to surf the Memorial Day sales!

What do you guys think about the Head Rev 85 Pro? Gets really solid reviews and there are screaming deals on them right now.
