I just traded my 190 AK Rockets for some 200 Rockets. My friend has a pair of the 200 Rockets so we switched (my new 200s) and skied them back to back. They felt like two completely different skis. His are tuned the way my 190's were: 1/2 & 2 and both the 190's and his 200s hook up and ski the groomed pretty decently for a fat ski. The pair I traded for, however did not. They were sluggish, and even though the edges felt sharp it was hard to get them to hold a turn. I will retune them tonight and compare them again. It only took each of us a couple of turns to feel the difference in the tune job. It's hard to believe how much this can effect the feel of the skis.
