    Isn't that the truth! I had L120s and then gave them to my Godson a couple years ago. I am seriously thinking about Animas, E110s or C&D's. I'm getting older and fatter and am just not willing to fight with a ski.

    That's a lot of variety in the skis you listed and it sounds like you would prefer a more traditional mount point. That leaves out the Anima for sure which is -6 and seems like a soft and centre biased ski. C&D for deeper pow bias or Billygoat for more versatility. Spurs too if you're thinking C&D but at your weight/height the ON3P may be better suited.

    I had tip dive and other issues with my 188s, I upgraded to the 192s and donít have tip dive anymore and now love the ski. They are stiffer, wider, etc. Iím not chubby but I am 6í 2Ē if that helps.

    I'm just big boned....under the fat.

    Thanks. The skis were great in 6", but are probably just too small for a big boned guy like myself in deep stuff. I have to say I was really surprised how badly these dove. Will have to try the 192s if I get a chance.

    I sure as shit hope it is a sizing issue for you as I am 6'4" and 210 lbs and have a brand new pair of 192s with sth 16s ready for their maiden voyage... I was looking to go with 116 Woodsman, but because of the great reviews from this board I went with Rustler 11s... I do own 193 Gunsmokes and love them so hoping the same for the 11s...

    I'm about to mount some Rustler 11's. Thinking -1 is where I want to be. Anybody played around with moving points?

    What length? On anything shorter than 192 I wouldnít go back. The mounting point on R11 is very dialed for how it skis, IMO. No need for experiments. If you picked up the right size, you donít have to fear tip dive.
    This ski has to be rather upsized if youíre going to charge on it.

    I have 188's. I'm 5'10" 175. Have 185 Cochises for charging. Protests for deep. I just happen to like more traditional mounts.

    What's Blizzard up to?

    Funny people are talking going back? Or funny to me as I donít like far back mounts.

    Just sold some 181cm Lib Wreckreates (sorry Mt Baker). Used the $ to get some Rustler 11s (last yearís green ones) in a 180cm.

    Going to go +1.5 to + 2 to get them to -6 on the ski. I think rec is -8?

    Mounting in a few days.

    Iíve skied Faction Candides at -5, Opus at -2.5, Libs at -5, Rens at-5, Bibbys at -5, InThaynes at -5.5, Nomads at -5.5.....

    Never had tip dive on any in the deep. I ski pretty centered.

    Interested on hearing from Rustler 11 owners who have gone forward +1 or +2?

    Iím 5í7Ē, 165 lbs.

    Ski the 192s at +2. Makes them more playful and I think you will like them there considering you history with other skis.

    Personally I wish I had mine at recommended now, feel a bit off balanced at times when skiing hard.

    I had hole conflict at recommended, and the um mounter put them at -1.

    I'm moving them to +1. Will report back after skiing...

    Skiing 188s at 6'190#. As some (roqer and others) have noted, size up. The 188s almost feel small for me!

    What is the experienced mount point on the new (19/20) Rustler 10 in a 188? Factory is +1 I believe but reading several different opinions. Also, this has metal under foot so are do it your-selfer's tapping when mounting or will drilling alone do it?

    Regarding the rustler 11: After owning a pair of 188s for half a season, I don't consider them a dedicated powder ski. I have original spurs and spur-ed bodacious from a few years ago and they both ski powder better with their tip design. The R11s are definitely more fun for chopped up powder, steep trees, powder filled chutes and other tighter terrain. I definitely get tip dive on deep untracked powder if I don't stay centered. For me, I have to concentrate a bit more in deep powder as the tips don't stay up as well as my other powder skis. But they are just so much fun all over the mountain, I find myself wanting to ski them as much as possible. I didn't try the 192 before buying. Would like to get on the longer length at some point for comparison.

    For my day to day 2-ski quiver for LCC, I am very happy with R11 and original cochise. I do like to get on my spurs for the first half of really deep days, though. Those ski untracked deep powder so well.

    ^^ I did as well. Seems like most people say it has a big sweet spot. And, comparing to some of my other Same size skis, the line is pretty far back (188).

    Ya I got mine as a do everything ski for after-pow or packed pow days at Whistler (where is a pain to change skis 1/2 through a day).

    Plus I have Candide 5.0 (152-122-140) for the deep days.

    Will try my Rustler 11s this weekend and report back. Went +1.8cm. haha

    I think Leo skis his 188 R11s at +3 from recommended. I reached out to him to confirm. He's not a big dude by any means.

    The mounting points on Rustler are definitely different than the Cochise/Bodacious/Bonafide, quite a bit farther forward.

    I ski the 192s on the line and have no issues. Never experienced tip dive. I probably would on the 188 at my size but have only skied it a few times and never on a deep day.

    I went 1.5 or 2cm forward on my 188 R11s and have been really happy with them there. I mostly ski OG Spurs on really deep days but have never noticed any tip dive issues on the R11s at that mount point (5'6", 185). I'd like to ski the 192s for a comparison.

    Anyone experience top sheet delam / separation at the tail (where tail TPU meets top sheet)? Less than five days; serious bummer. I tried wood glue and and a clamp but that didn’t work with tail vibration.

    I will say the steeper the terrain gets the better the 10s perform.

    Wood glue isn't going to cut it. [At all. I doubt it will adhere to any of the materials in a ski, except for perhaps the wood core, but since it's awash in epoxy too, probably not even there.]

    Epoxy is what you need.

    Warranty is what I need but sending them back is not my idea of slightly convenient. I’ll see if I can find the rep for Bay Area. If not, I’ll just epoxy.

    Any suggestion on type of epoxy?

    Talking Rustler 11 192 mount point

    Hi guys, i`m a R11 192 owner, Alps skier, 184cm for 88kg.
    This year i moved to Dal Bello Lupo HD from Dobbermann 150 and, considering i use A LOT foot to ski i`m feeling a little bit less strong on my Rustler!
    It`s like now the horses are for giving me less than the past with race boots.
    Probably i`m one year older and weaker legs than past year ), but i was wondering if could be an idea to move +2 the bindings (Jester 16), to have my Rustler more playful.
    What do you think?
