    So floored these weren't snagged same day.

    $450 shipped is a steal when you consider the only other way to get this is going custom for $1300+.

    Hard disagree. Both corn and pow ski quite nicely on a 108.

    I can see wanting a wider pow ski, and I can see wanting a narrower spring ski. But a 108 is incredibly versatile.

    I can definitely see owning both. I haven't thought about this a lot :wink: but

    Zero G 105 + SSL + Skorpius = ~2850 g per foot
    Woodsman 108 Tour + Tecton + XT3 140 = ~4130 g per foot
