    ON3P Woodsman 108 182 w/ Castified Look Pivot 14s - stock skis with C&D graphics
    ON3P Woodsman 116 182 w/ Castified Look Pivot 14s - stock skis with BG graphics

    This was supposed to be a three ski quiver, but had a spare pair of wren114s - so mounted them too. Wrens are for raging, woods are for daily driver use. Very excited to try these skis. I expect these skis will see something like 90% resort use - where the majority of touring will be lift based slackcountry use, hence Cast.

    To be used with Fischer RC4s w/alpine AFDs and Hawx XTD 130s w/WTR/tech AFDs.

    I also had a pair of Lib Tech Wunderstick 118s arrive this week. They were quite affordable, and the plan was to try them and keep them as loaner skis. At 125gr in weight difference between the two skis - with the lighter ski weighing in at a noodly 2000gr - they will be passed on though. There is a noticeable difference in flex too - especially in the shovels, if not the weight difference would not have been a def deal breaker. At 118wide with 148mm shovels, the lack of weight and torsional stiffness will probably not be what the doctor ordered in dense pow or tracked/variable snow - while probably awesome in blower pow. Oh well. The graphic really pops though - I'll give em that.

    Havenít gotten on them yet but hopefully within the next week or two. It was part of a binding purchase and the skis are in super rough shape. Decided instead of tossing them to slap a duke on and see how long they last skidding over rocks and stumps in the early and late season. I can give you an update once it finally snows.

    Very rad quiver, that Wren 114 is probably my favorite graphic of all time
    Fear, Doubt, Disbelief, you have to let it all go. Free your mind!

    Haven't done the full-on couloir/hardsteepsnow dance with mine yet as I got them later last season, but really like them so far. They sort of looked like a "touring Legend Pro" to me, and they ski that way so far. They're not light, but the 173 is about 200gs lighter than the 176 og LPs I have, a little fatter (100 vs. 96) and more rockered in the tip, so was pretty exactly what I wanted.

    The limited amount of step turns I got on them were VERY promising. Obviously the MSRP for these is insane for what they are, which is why I only pulled the trigger when they were on big sale in Euroland.

    Haven't ski this combo yet, brand new in the quiver. But I purchase them for steep cause they seem promising on paper and in hand. And because a friend who generally has similar tastes enjoys them a lot in a lot of conditions. Including steep.

    Haven't skied them yet, but seems to be a good evolution of previous one. Pros are the same and some problems are solved. The spacers are really good (weight weenies don't have to use them), the setting of the stiffness of the front lever (and pressure of pins) is a good thing, ans the locking system of brakes seems better, by far. Only thing, I don't know if it will be convenient to lock the brakes in real use, with gloves, snow, ice,...

    Nah - not really. One pair of 18 toes that will be used with all four pairs, and one pair of tech toes - and three second ski kits. Ends up being quite a bit cheaper than Shifts for all of them, and should ride even better. Cast is making it really affordable to make your quiver ready for whatever. That the folks behind Cast are super easy to deal with and provide stellar customer support makes it even better. Def recommended. Do it right, go Cast

    I will not lie - when I took delivery of em my first thought was "why the hell did I go custom with my first pair?". This graphic with a textured topsheet is topsheet perfection imho. That being said - I would have a hard time deciding which of these tops I like the most. I simply love all four - they look fekking fantastic imho.

    both of you on the 173? I usually tour on 177-179, but my 171 skinny skis feel so short. Is the 173 enough? One of you is on 190+ resort skis?

    Like most skis, I wish it was 250g lighter and a 177... 1950g/ski at 180cm is just not gonna do it for an earn-your-turns ski for me I think...

    Kidkapow, how did you get the older custom topsheets? Is Scott letting throwbacks happen now?

    I think the guiding philosophy when you want stock or previously stock graphics - you want it they build it. Just request what you want (graphic wise) and they more than likely have it in stock already.

    The current builder is probably more limiting than what they offer. With ON3P's catalogue of are-ye-fekking-kidding-me awesome graphics it would probably be counter productive to significantly limit what designs people could order when going custom.

    To be fair though, I got these this summer - so with the old custom order process. This particular C&Ds design was not listed, but I asked for it and they had them in stock. If not they would have just made/ordered them.

    I'm on the 173 and am usually on skis between 177-186 for touring, and then 183 Katana inbounds. I'm 5'8" 140 FWIW. The 173s haven't felt too short yet, but I also don't expect to roll them out for legit pow days. I have a pair of 169 (!!!!!) summer/mission skis that I got cheap and ended up liking so that, like, opened my mind man
