    The rustler 11 is a fantastic ski. My new favorite. Got them late last season so only skied them about a half dozen or so days. Can't wait to get on those again. So versatile.

    How much top end do you give up compared to the cochise? For how much increase in float?

    I know this question wasn’t directed at me, but I had the same reaction to the Rustler 11. My new favorite all around ski. The tip and tail of the R11 are definitely softer than the Cochise and as a result, it doesn’t possess the same crush-ability as the Cochise. Also, the 21-ish meter radius can feel a tad hooky in heavy manky snow. That being said, they are better EVERYWHERE ELSE versus the Cochise. The R11 rails groomers, floats better in pow, and is just an easier ski to manage. Every one of my buddies who owns a Cochise now owns an R11 and skis the Rustler all the time. It is my go to ski for places like Whistler, as a reference point.

    I love the Cochise and bought some Rustler 11's after demoing. Cochises are the better bad snow ski. They let your make smooth turns high speed turns when the snow just sucks. Rustlers are more fun and less work when snow is good. More pop. More float. Not much overlap IMO.

    Some great r11 love. Yup they just smear easier than cochise while still retaining a little burlyness. Cochise = full super g stability. R11 = soft gs. Not a dentist ski though.

    Cool thnx. For those who were on the (OG) cochise 185, did you go 188 or 180 R11? Im kinda in between.

    I was on the OG 185 Cochise and went 188 R11. My buddy who is 40-lbs lighter skied the OG Cochise in 177 and went with the 188 R11. I think GregL skis both the 188 and 180 R11. I could see the 180 being a lot of fun, too. The only place the length of the 188 feels like a liability is in super tight trees, but the 185 Cochise sucks there, too.

    [image to come i guess..? Is there a post count I need to hit to attach images?]

    186 Dynastar Big Trouble
    184 Meier Heritage Tour
    188 Salomon QST 99

    Got the big troubles in college about a decade ago as my first 'real' ski. Finally started getting back up to the mountain last year and picked up the QST to be my main ski. Then I had a cat skiing trip planned last winter so I went to a ski swap and ended up with the Meier's.

    I was rocking the Lange RX 120s, then I thought I wanted the possibility of getting into the back country and picked up some lightly used Tecnica Cochise 120s. They felt a little soft for inbounds riding, but I only got one day on them in the spring so not sure how that'll all play out. They're comfy though.

    I ski in the PNW and am still sorting out what my quiver should actually be but this is what I'm starting with now that I'm plunging into skiing more and found TGR.

    Got tired of running inserts and swapping two pairs of bindings between skis. A few purchases, and finally got them all mounted up with their own clamps.

    Quiver is pretty much filled out how I'd like it... except for waiting for the Stokes to break so I can get some new and proper length 100-ish touring skis.
