    ^^ that might have to do with the layup. I found the older Praxis cores to be more damp than the current standard core (enduro). I think they were full poplar? The current cores are lighter though,...

    Fk yeah! Super happy to hear you're stoked and those skis are getting some love!

    FWIW I am equally stoked on the 187 veneer MAP-C Protests I bought as a replacement. Mounted with G3 Ions at -1cm...

    I use G3 140mm skins on mine. The BD tip loop won't work, tips of Protests are too blunted. Once the shitty G3 glue dies I'll probably cut the tips off and attach them to a BD skin.

    For $150? You can ski them and if you decide you hate them you'll be able to sell them for double. Yes that's a no brainer.

    I thought skiing my GPOs with TLT6s was terrifying. No way would I try to drive a Protest with that boot.
    Of course, you may have more finesse and skill than me.
    I don't think the binding would be...

    The Protest kinda skims along the top of chop. It requires you to stay pretty balanced and centered on the ski. You can't really drive the tips through stuff.

    I prefer a Bibby/BG type ski even in...

    I'm thinking $350ish flat? Add $200ish if you want the binders too? They're pretty minty, no damage to speak of. Buck's beach topsheet.

    Yeah, I'm with meter-man. Something like a Bibby/Billy Goat/GPO really complements a Protest well. And for Front Range skiing I absolutely think that the Bibby category is a better resort pow day ski...

    The Protest is more pivoty than the BG. Protest floats better at low speeds. However the tip of the BG can be driven harder. BG is way better in chop and crud.
