    As I mentioned over at NS. I have done the K108/116 2 ski quiver......it's a titties combo. My 116 was 186cm while I chose the 181cm for the 108. They overlap, but in a good wayI never felt like I brought too wide a ski or too skinny of a ski for the conditions.

    Take note I live in the Southern Hemisphere, so our conditions are way different. Somewhat similar to your EC though. I also own Billy Goats but we dont get enough snow, it's for Japow and US/Canada trips.

    The 98 is for inbetween storms. 108 is for stoms and the days/weeks after till it firms up again.

    If I lived in the PNW I would daily a 108 and use the BG when its fresh. It's all dependent on where and what you ski. This suits me, it might not suit you.

    I picked up a pair of 11-12 c&d from wren last month. Due to hold conflict I can either use his inserts for the toe and end up -1 or I can go +.5 with a fresh mount. Consensus on mount point on that ski? Leaning towards going back.

    I would go back. No experience on that specific ski though.

    I don't see the point in a k116 k108 quiver, look at a ruler, look at what 8mm is, now look again and look at what 4mm is, that's the difference.

    Pick one of the two depending on how it fits in your quiver, slightly more soft or firm.

    If you are going short on the k108 for park then I get it, otherwise......

    Also Iggy I emailed you for some advice on my 6'8" 260lb friend.

    Those look pretty sick. But I would hate to have to look for one on a pow day after a double eject

    The 116 was 186cm while the 108 was 181cm. Overall makes for a pretty big difference in stability, versatility and float.

    So the 181 was more for playing around all mountain and getting creative, while the 186 was a powder/charger? Makes sense.

    Here is a photo of a 190 Super7 RD between two Billy Goats. One of these is not regularly stocked in the ski shop...

    The other reason a 108 and 116 work well together is that they have a different type of sidecut (elliptical vs bi-radius), different tip/tail taper and shape (k108 more daily driver shape, K116 more soft snow orientated), and yes the width.

    Here is a pic of all three Kartels. Notice the K98 and K108 have the same tip shape, but then look at the K116 and you will see what I mean. The tails also have this taper and shape that the K98 and K108 do not have:

    Absolute revelation to me, had no idea the 116 had an elliptical side cut... is it the reverse elliptical?

    I think those black on whites are dead ass sexy!

    Funny enough - the 2 ski quiver of almost everyone here is a Kartel 108 everyday, Kartel 116 for powder. As Jay mentioned, a number of other changes beside width (layup, flex, taper, biradius).

    Charlie Murphy, Magnus, Kartel 98, Kartel 108, Jessie 88, Jessie 98 = Eliptical
    Kartel 116, Jessie 108, Wren 88, Wren 98, Wren 108 = Bi-Radius
    Steeple 108, Steeple 116, Billy Goat, Cease & Desist = RES
