well, for what it's worth, i demoed both of those skis and both of 'em whupped my pansy a$$.
the iM88 was like a tank. i felt like i needed another 100lbs on me to make em turn and respond and i had them out on a fresh light powder day @ Alpine Meadows. they reminded me a lot of the Explosiv: burly, somewhat straight ski for burly heads.
the Scot Schmidt was way more ski than I could handle. i rode them a few weeks ago at Heavenly and I had to drive the tips so hard I felt like i was gonna go over the handlebars all the time. i did notice the softer tip, though, as they flopped and chattered a lot on the hardpack groomers when I opened 'em up and straightlined 'em to make some of the notorious Heavenly cross traverses from Cali to Neva. they did lay down a sick carve when i got into position, but i'm not big on carving (i prefer a little texture and to slarve and hack). i had one great run on them off the Sky chair where I was way over the tips and ripping, but then the run got congested and I had to reign 'em in, which isn't what they're meant for (they want to be opened up on the steeps and driven hard).
as for the Titan 9, well that's the ski I traded the SS in for after two hours of trying to wrangle 'em. the T9 is much more manageable for me and still a ripping ski on firm, mid-sized moguls, and soft serve. i have only ridden the piss green '05's but recently plunked down on the yucky blue '07s.
i would say if you're a beefy cat and you like to drive your skis, then the iM88 or SS might be the call. But i would demo first, especially at that $1000 price tag on the Schmidts.
i have heard rumors that they are re-designing the SS for next season, with somebody mentioning making it a little more manageable for us mere mortals.
oh yeah, i was demoing the iM88 in a 175 and the SS in 178.
i have the T9 in a 181 and I'm 5'11" and 179lbs. call me a somewhat timid ripper, if you will.
