    I still have 2 pairs of 186 Bodacious, 2017 and current re-issue black graphic, in the quiver, along with 2 pairs of 188 Rustler 11's.
    Ha!

    That, and your comment
    "it's designed for the skier who just points it and trusts that the hill will flatten out eventually"

    Ok, I'll bite.
    I'll buy the Bodacious first. Then I'll see about some R11's *too*.
    I'm not sure I'm the guy who simply points it, but I really do love the OG Cochise and Bodacious.

    FWIW, new cochise is supposed to go back to its roots. 'Rona kinda put a damper on anyone actually trying it out much at the end of last season though. May be worth checking out if you don't wanna go 118 on the Bodacious.

    Someone school me on the history of the bodacious... was there just one prior to the recent re-release and now said re-release is the same as the one and only, or were there two/three gens and the re-release is a copy of one of those, if so which one....

    Is the 186 enough ski? Iím 5í9 but fat (swing between 180-200) loved: 191 12/13? Wren, 184 Germany katanas, 185 motherships, 184 mantras, 189 automatic 109s, 192 Bents, 189 OG Spurs.

    Wish there was a 187-190, 196 is too long, even by my I have a tiny d and want to compensate standards.
    Do I detect a lot of anger flowing around this place? Kind of like a pubescent volatility, some angst, a lot of I'm-sixteen-and-angry-at-my-father syndrome?

    fuck that noise.

    gmen.

    Gen 1 2012-2015. I think there were some mild flex changes between those years, but the shape and rocker is mostly the same. Full rocker skis.

    Gen 2 2016-2017. New spurred shape, better pow ski, but less versatile, lighter and less damp.

    Re-issue 2018-2021, full black ski, same shape and rocker as gen 1.

    At 5,9 I think you would enjoy the 186, It’s stiff, but the rocker makes them easy to ski.

    Thanks! I guess do you think the 186 will be not enough ski for a crud buster fall line mover?

    Skibrd- is that your way of saying the 186 will be just fine.


    Eye fuxking some 186 for cheap. Drooling

    At your size, I think so. Then again I didnít really have the conditions to let the 196 run, and tried to ski them with soft boots (XT Free Pros instead of Raptor 140s) in a steep couloir with about 6 inches of dust over refreese bumps... I may of had a different opinion of them with different boots inbounds charging all day on a pow day, but thatís not really my style lately. For reference Iím 6-3, and was probably 205 when I skied them. I also let a buddy tune them, he likes his skis sharp and I prefer them dull, so they probably were way sharper then Iíd like. They skied easy, they just are heavy as fuck and ski big. The 203 Shiros ski smaller I feel.

    I'm 5'11 and hover around 180, you'll be fine on the 186. I too wish there was a 191, but the 186 is definitely enough ski.

    I have two pairs of the OG 186, and I like to use that ski everyday, everywhere. It pivots super easily in the trees but will also straight line crud like nobodyís business.
    I also have a pair of the Spuríd 193s as a pow ski.
    Iím 5í11/200 and Iím also considering a pair of the 196s.

    I'm same height and a little light, love the 196, think it's an awesome ski. Just need a little room to run.

    Awesome gonna do it, just searching the couch cushions.
