No, there is something wrong with you regardlless of what skis you are on!
There you go spewing BS again! Stop it, please would you. You are making fool of yourself! Every post gets more ridiculous!
You can't be serious....I will again make you look like a fool. We are not talking about switching from a 185 GS ski to a 180 freecarver.
On Saturday, I skied on the following, in this order, at Killington in mixed soft snow, bumps, and 12" of untracked melting windpack with a snowmaking crust, on top of no base, with waterbars, ledges/cliffs, and stumps.
188 Dynastar Intutive Bigs, 997 11-17, driver plus plates, -1cm.
195 Salomon AK Rocket (swallowtail), demo's, -1cm.
188 Salomon 1080 Gun LAB, demos, -1cm.
180 Atomic Powder Plus, S916's, driver plus plates, -2cm, centered
On Sunday, I skied hardpack on the 175 M:EX's with 10mm lift and 1018 race's.
Now, anybody who has ever skied a really fat ski in soft snow the way they are supposed to be skied will tell you that it's entirely different than race or carving technique. Going from the Gun LAB's to the P+, cake, virtually the same thing. Going to the M:EX, suckage.
Even so, I got a couple hoots from the lift laying out some trenches.
