They're not assumptions, they're observations.
I ski "nationwide". In other countries, and an other continents as well.
Inbounds, OB, and occasionally, from a snowcat.
94mm, and 101mm, is a lot of ski, and IMO, too much ski for 95% of skiers everyday needs. If that's what you ride, and it's working for you, then congratulations.
But I challenge you to point out a ski shop anywhere that sells more skis with >94mm waists than with <94mm. (And don't point out some bogus store that caters to backcountry or cat/heli riders, they are the legit users of such planks.) It's still not what most folks need or want.
