    190 moment and 188 Blizzard are about the same size. The 184 moment is pretty short. I’ve skied a 184 Wildcat tour and 184 Deathwish tour and both were really short compared to the 188 Rustler.

    The Rustler 9 isn’t that far off from a mid 90s Rustler 11. Way better ski than the 10. Confused why this is hard for people.
