    186 Karbon Model. That don't fall apart? That sexy model who takes her clothes off on every turn of event with a little nibble on the earlobe.

    And can take it a little rough.

    Yeah, that model.

    I think Splats top sheets are cool as hell. If Praxis got a license to use those on their current custom skis, that alone would be cool as hell.

    I canít guarantee Iíd buy them, but if I happen to decide to get a Praxis ski, Iíd love to have one of those top sheets on it. Not sure exactly which one Iíd want, either. It would be so easy to implement it this way, and not require so much development work and cost.

    That's a shame.
    Something about the metal tips/tail inset is so like watchmaking steeze from olden days.
    In a good way.

    I find it quote difficult to understand what people mean when they say they want carbon.
    There's a hudge differentiation between carbon skis and carbon/glass hybrids.
    Referring to skis as carbon is often a mislabeled interpretation a hybrid layup.
    People don't seem to comprehend the cost and labor pure carbon skis require.

    Keith can do the same hybrid layups he does on his skis.
    He ain't into pure carbon and I can't blame him a bit.
    Wanting cheap pure carbon skis is self negating.
    It's like wanting Lambos for Kia prices.
    Hybrid glass/carbon is pretty easy.
    Pure carbon not.

    I love my lhasa fat with kusala rocker (prototype). Best one stop shop I ever skied. So quick and slashes with ease. If this was the next model it was genuis. FKNA
    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.....

    Iíve heard you bang that drum before and has piqued my interest since I have 191FATS Hybrid. Do they give up anything over the standard? Hardpack performance? Sounds like they get looser at slower speeds and pivot easier where as the standard needs speed to break loose.

    I still think the 191 Fat is the best ski evar!!
    Owned both hybrid and pures.
    Love the Kusala, especially for tight stuff.
    And have an angle on a pair of 191 pures, pretty stoked.

    It would be nice to see the PMGear shapes available again.

    They are a good combo of reverse camber and all mtn sidecut. I had 191 OG and it was good but these are just quicker like a scalpel. I also have kusala and they are stiffer. Maybe the layup not sure. I donít feel like I give anything up but gain a slasher in the trees. They would be fun in 191 but 186 is ok for me at 175 lb.
    I need to go to Utah.

    It would be interesting to see.

    I own 4 pair of active PMGear skis now, so short a fire or burglary I am not in the market for skis in the foreseeable future

    I'd definitely be down for a Kusala or Lhasa Fat, ideally ~187cm.

    I loved my Hybrid 186 Lhasa Pow Fats, only ski I really regret selling

    A 187 FAT scaled down to 106 under foot with a heavy damp build would be so sick. I could almost see myself with just my 192 ProTest and this ski as a two ski quiver.
    Almost........

    I could have no money and I'd sell blood to get my hands on a pair.
