    Thanks for the review, Suprechicken. Are your GPOs the stock med-stiff flex? I can't remember if the Feb sale had customized flex as an option.

    GS - The bibbys are listed as 10.2 lbs for the pair. The ones I have on the way (I haven't skied them yet) are the old generation eel topsheet 190s and they're mounted with Dukes. The GPOs are slightly lighter, but with the bindings (ffg16 vs Dukes), they are definitely going to ski lighter than the bibbys.

    JB - My GPOs are med-stiff. That's all that was avialable. They definitely hand flex stiffer than my med-stiff concepts. Not sure if that's the carbon or newness or just that Keith is making med-stiff slightly stiffer than he used to.

    Took the GPO's out for the first time today. I've got the carbon 192's in a medium stiff flex. It wasn't the ideal conditions to test them out because of the high temps but they feel more stable than my Concepts and I suspect that they will be better in crud also... too early to tell though. They definitely flex stiffer than my carbon Concepts.

    Still debating on -1. I ski really forward and lean into em. Sometimes stuff a tip on squads which are also -7 mount from center. Final thoughts?
    I need to go to Utah.
    Utah?
    Yeah, Utah. It's wedged in between Wyoming and Nevada. You've seen pictures of it, right?

    So after 15 years we finally made it to Utah.....

    Looking forward to the GoPro ski porn footage. Popcorn and tissues at the ready...I think I'm going to enjoy this.

    WT...you can always come try mine before you mount if you can wait that long. But I can't get the tips to dive even mounted at the dimple. I'm a tip driver (heh) and I'm almost wishing I were +1...

    Brilliant Idea. More playful than both and just as high a speed limit.

    I'd feel fine on -1 or -2 even though mine are on the dimple. I might move them back..what the heck. Keith skis centered per my conversation with this week; that was my take. I think I like to drive the ski with 'old school' technique.

    ...Because I'm older and getting darn close to the wrong side of 50 next month.

    I'm skiing the 184cm hybrid DPS 112RP. It's a great ski, but I might consider something a bit more stout for resort crud purposes. The catch is that it still needs to surf like a mofo in deep snow and be maneuverable enough for tight trees and powder bumps. Can anyone compare the 187cm GPO to the 184cm 112RP?

    keep in mind that there will be a 182 length in the GPO
    (tree maneuverability)

    this is of course secondary to the traits of the ski itself, but still might be good info for you on the 184 w112
    Aggressive in my own mind

    Anybody know of a way to scope out and/or try this ski in a 187 in or around Seattle? It intrigues me.

    Not me doing a backflip, but I'm glad Matty showed my bases to the sky. 1:18, they are destroying the crud. That shit was heavy and they were maching right through. The rest is slalom practice with trees. Stupid fun. I wish there had been some higher angle terrain, but there wasn't enough new snow. So it goes.

    Enjoy.

    Also, sort of rethinking putting the word "Porn" in my first youtube video. Whoops.

    ^^^^^^^^^Nice vid supre. Great to see some tight quick tree action. They look fun, stable and quick. Still waiting see some 8-12" to see if there is any hint of tip dive at the dimple. Thanks for the stoke

    So I didn't get any vid of the gpo at Stevens this week, but skiing them back to back with the spoons in 12-15" of light sidecountry pow left me really impressed. They aren't as lively in the deep as the spoons (unfair comparison, I know) but that tip surfs right up. Ski stays predictable. Neutral/weight fwd without any tip dive. If you want a comp ski, you want the gpo.

    For float/surf, a decent spectrum from the skis I have gotten to ride this year:

    Spoon > billy goat > gpo > gambit > concept. The bg is as close to the feel of the spoon as it gets, I think. The gpo is close, but they don't quite have the pivoting/surfing ease that the bg does in deep snow. It's close, though.

    Hope that helps.

    I think he had a pair of 186's before.
