    Agree completely. I picked up 179 Billy Goats early last year. They are very easy to maneuverable in powder whether in tighter spaces or bigger turns. And they plane incredibly well and handle...

    No not for sale. They are a little too much for me in tight spots but I like them too much to part with them.

    By the way, I would like to add a few comments on the Wren 108 though I think it's been covered pretty well. I'm 5'9" and 155 and past the 60 mark. I live in New England and mostly ski in Northern...

    I'm 5'9" and 155. I have 179 Wren 108s and when I was at Big Sky this winter those skis seemed custom made for that place. However, when back home at Stowe, and skiing tighter trails, especially in...

    Length wise for Kartel 98s (or maybe the 96s), I was looking at 176 versus 181 because I wanted them for tighter turns/trees/bumps in VT (my Bonafides are 173 and I love them in that length), and the...

    Didn't know the Rustlers were more center mounted, will definitely have to try them now. Agree on the side cut though which is one reason why I am favoring a Rustler or Kartel over a Wren 98 even. ...

    So a little help here? I was out at Big Sky a few weeks ago and spent most of my time on 179 (I'm 5' 9" and 155 and past 60), Wren 108s. I think that ski was made for Big Sky. Skiing heavy wind...

    Good for him. Looks like he's still riding on Praxis Skis (customer GPO maybe?), along with his Cast Set Up.
