    How much more do you like the sr95's compared to the fx95hp? Is there anything the sr95's don't do well? I'm considering both pairs of skis as my harder snow day ski. I would be replacing a pair of...

    How much is everyone detuning their M-Free 108's? I pretty much followed DarthMarkus's picture that he posted in his review, just extended the detuned zone a little bit on both the tips and tails....

    Definitely not the most qualified on this topic, but I've done all my corn skiing during the freeze/thaw cycle you get in the spring. Look for a couple days in a row where there's a consistent...

    Yeah I've found that outside of a GS course I can't really over-ski the 188's. You can lay them over and trust the ski. I actually found them to be pretty fun on really soft groomers too. The men's...

    I'm a huge fan of skiing the Women's FIS GS ski around. They're 188cm 30m ski that are pretty mellow. Definitely need some space and speed to get them going, but I've found them to be a fun free ski....

    Alright just an update to everyone that's offered suggestions, I ended up buying a pair of Dynastar M-Free 108 flats. Super stoked to get them mounted and ski them. I'm expecting them to take over as...

    Do you ever find the 182's to be not enough? I originally wanted the 180 Kore's but could only get a deal on them in the 189. Now that I'm on them I feel like a shorter ski for most of the skiing I...

    May have missed it, but any lighter guys on the 192cm? I'm 165lbs, maybe 180ish(?) with gear on. Fairly strong skier though. Free skiing a 130 plug, used to race a 150 plug cut down to ~140....

    I did detune them a little bit, but not like you suggested. I'll give that a go for sure. I will say, the GPO's are sick in trees. Part of that is the length I think, but once they're moving, they're...

    Another ski that came to mind that I didn't see mentioned here is the Dynastar M-Free 108. Blister's review of it (the 182 cm) ski wasn't as positive as what I've heard here about the 192cm. Is this...
