This thread was helpful to me. I just picked up a pair of 2009 Xplorers in 184, and they arrived today. These are big boards compared to what I usually ski! I've rented Recons in recent years and liked them a lot, but since I ski only in the West, I figured why not go wider. I'm 6'4", 235, so I'm hoping I didn't go too big. (I do turn now and then!)
Can't wait to get to Colorado this winter and try them out!
