I'm looking to purchase new skis for trips out west and to use during the occasional east coast powder or springtime conditions. They would replace the Atomic REXs that I've used for the past 2 years. I did demo and like the 04/05 Volkl Karma (169 cm), but thought I might like it in 177 cm even more. I'm 5'8" & 157 lbs, and like Wear The Fox Hat, I love my XRC 1100 SWs (163 cm) for hard snow conditions. Does anyone my ht/wt have any experience with the 04/05 or 05/06 Karma or this years Mantra, AC4 , Monster 88 or new B3? By the way, I really liked the REXs. It's just time to try something new. Also, once I decide on a ski and length, I'll need to find a seller- the shops in my area don't carry many wider skis. Thanks.
