It's time to invest in some new gear and I'm looking at a 2 ski quiver for the upcoming season.
Quick stats: 5'9", 165lbs, expert skier, west coast based (primarily Tahoe), rarely ski in tight trees
Thinking about doing the following:
- Hard snow/on-piste/carver: Kastle MX88 in a 178 - demoed last year and loved it
- Fresh snow/off-piste/powder: Deciding between the Volkl V Werks Katana in a 177 or the 100Eight in either the 173 or 181
1) Does anyone have a sense of the differences between the Katana and 100Eight? I've skied the Katana and enjoyed them, but a bit turned off by the $$
2) Does the 100Eight ski long or short? Torn between the 173 and 181
3) Other recs?
