    I haven't skied the Gotama recently enough to have any real thoughts.

    Definitely agree with Superior that they won't be too much ski for your size and ability. They're not a demanding ski at all.

    I've been curious about those. How annoying are they to install with the two strips of skin flapping around? Seems like the fiddle factor when yoyoing shorter laps could be a PITA.
