    who prefers what? And why..
    Owned both in a 192. The Hybrid skied the heavy stuff in the PNW better...just felt more damp. The Pure is noticeably lighter and stiff, but not as damp as the hybrid...or at least it didn’t feel as damp to me. Still have the pure but don’t get to ski them all that much.

    10”+ of wet, heavy, shmoo called for the OG mank killers. Perfect tool for the job. Spatulating is fun.

    and when a few said no, follow up with
    ”you are in Haines, it’s all time, and you are passing up 138’s? I literally feel bad for you”.

    nobody, including Stephan & myself, loved 138 more than rob
    You sold me some black, bamboo sidewall 138's a long time ago.

    I put dynafit bindings on them and proceeded to have some of the best backcountry ski days ever on those skis.

    Nothing like them when it was really deep.
