    Maybe I should head the way of the Quixote in the 188, instead of the RX in the 184. Are they comparable? Is one more versatile than the other?

    Thanks for indulging one so ignorant in the ways of Praxis. Lastly, what's the closest layup they have to the Soul 7s (including graphics)?
    You should really ping Keith to understand the specific differences between the three and how that will fit into your skiing style. I have a hard time believing the Q is actually lighter than the GPO -- it's likely for that the specs are listed for slightly different layups. Actually, the site sez the stock 188 Q is 9.8# and the stock 187 GPO is 9.4 so I'm not sure where you're getting the idea the Q is lighter...

    RX will definitely be less pow specific and more versatile with more camber, less rocker, and minimal taper. Q has a lot going on with it -- more rocker for sure and also an asymmetric sidecut where the outer edges have more taper so they're less hooky.

    EDIT- Surely the 32m radius on the RX 184cm is an error?
    Nope. Straight skis are mo better because they're less hooky in funky snow. It's a common misconception that a long radius ski can only make long radius turns. You can often make any turn shape you want, especially if you smear and slarve your turns as opposed to a strict carve.

    Yep, thought it'd be too obvious.

    Going to get in touch with Keith and see what's possible. If all else fails, I'll buy some Rustler 11s.

    If you plan to visit Whistler, and if you like what you see at https://www.priorsnow.com/products/overlord , then you can demo their skis for $25/day. The XTC Carbon version is pretty lightweight for such big skis.

    Bob,
    Sounds like JLev didn't take you up on the "TGR influencer" offer? Or Keith came in hard with a new offer?
