    Just put my first day on the 180cm pr-oto.

    It felt slightly jittery at the 0 line on my 25 boot... felt more composed at +2 clicks (about +1cm) on my demo bindings.

    1mm in gripwalk pivots vs 6mm on STH2.

    But I think pre gripwalk, pivots were more... so might have been noticed in the older models?

    I will agree that tapping is optional but you should really chamfer the holes before you put the screws in (especially if you are not tapping) or will likely get volcanoes.

    Which model year? Full rocker or camber?

    Are you pushing the skis hard or mellowing out a little? No judgement... just asking.

    I never actually skied the gotama though I wish I did.

    Have you tried the k108? It looks like the gotama was 105 under foot... right in between the m102 and k108.

    Was the gotama crazy stiff?
