Probably a little bit of both. I currently have a pair of 186 Lhasa prototypes with the 192 graphic on them from last winter that I've come to really love. They don't have quite as much tip rocker as the final production version, but I still really like them, so I'll rock those alot this year.
I'll have a pair of 196's as well...maybe in about a month.
I have a feeling I'll be on the 196's quite a bit. On a deep day, it would be hard to pull the 186 out of the rack with the 196 sittin there too.
Maybe I'll put Dukes on the 186 and use that for a sidecountry touring ski...and then put some bomber clamps on the 196 for terrorizing the resort and for comps.
