I have been shopping for a tip rockered ski. The closest thing to what I am looking for is the Solomon Czar, but I don't really want a radical twin tip, nor am I convinced I need 112mm width. Do you have a pair of the K2 Anti Piste? I hadn't seen this ski as an option, probably because it is a tele ski. The dimensions etc. fit pretty closely to what I am looking for. I already have a light, short AT setup. I would want to mount some Marker Barons on them, and use them for deep days both in area & AT. From what I can gather, they are pre drilled for tele bindings. Would this be a problem for mounting Barons?
Also for someone my size, 5' 10" 155 lbs. they reccomend a 174cm length. This is shorter than I would like, & the 181cm seems more what I am looking for. Would this be a mistake? How is the flex, soft, medium, stiff?
Any input is appreciated.
