    The Rustler Core is a blend of Beach, Poplar, Bamboo, and Paulownia. The Paulownia is the center stringer in that core. It is reinforced with unidirectional carbon stringers over the center of the core to give the ski more stiffness and performance without weight gain.

    Imagine an R11 with a heavier core...I know, it would be less R11 and more Bodacious but that sounds amazing for me in the PNW.

    And Tuco might be willing to buy a pair...

    Finally got out on the 189 bonafide 97s on some dust/accumulating snow on crust. Quite pleased with how these sweet bastards do their job

    Klauss I’ve been getting stoked on your POV’s for atleast 10 years at this point. You still shred as hard as ever! How old are you now?

    All this balsa wood talk led me to a beers open deal for some new R11's.

    Gold, White, or Forza 1.0 pivots? I'm leaning gold.
    a positive attitude will not solve all of your problems, but it may annoy enough people to make it worth the effort

    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.....

    This is a sweet vid Klauss. Any comparison to a mantra? And have you skied both the 189 and 183? I'm 5'11 185, generally ski 188-190s, but being influenced by the Blister review of these which says go shorter.

    Iím 6í2 and 200 lbs and 183 in B97 is plenty ski for me. Personally wouldnít want to go longer on this one - itís a lot of ski (and I love it).

    What's Blizzard up to?

    If I was 185 lbs Iíd probably personally lean to 183 - without having skied it. It should still let you push it. I am stoked on the 189 and it works well for me. I really liked the 2018 in a 187 and this feels a touch better somehow all around

    Thanks, that’s very helpful. Your video had me thinking not to worry about it and go 189, ha! Going to try and ski them and if not just decide.

Been floored by how good they are a just ordered my 3rd pair in the line yesterday.
    They moved all their ski construction into the Fisher ski plant, now use heavier wood core materials and the quality of construction is MILES better than before. Models have gained 200-400grams vs last years versions. Mild tip/tail taper so they still have good edge grip.
    All have a forward factory Candide mount point and then you measure back 1.5cm(like I did) for the ďprogressiveĒ mount point or back 3.0cm for the ďtraditionalĒ mount point if you drive your skis more and like more traditional mounts.

    I got the 183cm 2.0 this year on a deal from a local rep thinking if I didnít like it, Iíd sell it and be even. The ski weighs(2280gr) and flexes similar to a 2021 Bonifide 97 but has rubber damping tip/tail/underfoot, so itís like an even quieter Bonafide thatís a twin tip. Still playful in bumps and trees and a 20m radius so doesnít mind going straight at speed too. Sold my Enforcer 104 and Fisher 102 FR as this was a more stable, powerful carver thatís damper with better edge grip. Not the greatest float for itís 102mm width with itís narrow tip though.

    Liked the 2.0 so much I got the 184cm 3.0(112mm) with mine weighing 2210 grams and has a full poplar core and a very solid build as well. Loses the extra rubber damping of the 1.0 and 2.0 as well as the extra titanal sheet above the base for rail protection but still a pretty damp ski.
    A 21m radius in this length and very comfortable at all speeds. Shocking how good the grip and carving ability the ski has for itís width and yet itís an absolute blast in moguls and tight trees. Reminds me a lot of the 192cm MFree 108 but easier to manage in really tight spots for my 6í2Ē/175lb size. The 190cm version goes to 23m radius and adds another 50grams or so of weight. Could see a lot of Rustler 11 fans who want a beefier ski without much weight gain liking this ski as well as Enforcer 110 fans that a higher top end and better carving ability.

    Still some Spring Deals out there on them so I wanted to pass on my findings in case someone sees deals on this ski that many donít know about. Just ordered a pair of the 183cm 1.0 that I might use as a low tide/daily driver in the East Coast ski.

    Cheers
    Great info...

    You could start a Faction thread and share it there, unless one already exists.

    Which in polite words means stop cunting this place with your Faction Candide shit and start your own thread.

    Sorry, just couldnít resist...

    You guys make it sound like I brought up ON3P on the Dynastar thread or something.....lol
    With all this talk of broken Rustler 11s and some people wanting more playful Bonafide 97s, I thought the Factions as other options.

    Moved the post to itís own thread. Carry on!
