    Curious on people’s thoughts on the length for Wildcat 108s. I am about 5’9” and 175 lbs. I have a pair of PBJs in 182 and ski inthayne’s in 186. Would a 190 wildcat be fun??? Also considering a new deathwish. This would be to a new daily driver in the PNW

    thanks!

    I’m sure Luke will weigh in, but my hunch is that it will depend on your style—if you want to charge, go 190; if you want to play a little more go 184.

    You also should have a pretty good idea from your pbjs—do you feel like you need more ski at times or is it plenty for how you like to ski?

    The 190 wildcat 108 is a lot of fun. Made me want to jib off of everything. I'm 5'10 175 in the summer, up toward 185 in the winter. That said I ski 190 bibby's, 187 meridians. With short pbj's and inthayne's in your quiver, I'd seriously consider the 190 for skiing fast. It almost certainly won't be too much ski for you.

    Thanks for the input Ruffian and waxloaf. Sounds like the 190 might be the way to go for me... that being said would the same advice apply for the regular wildcat?

    People that have skied both, how does the wildcat 108 compare to the PBJ? Maybe their would be too much overlap in their general use?

    Right on. Yep, that's what I got, too, weight-wise. I was up way too late last night, stuck in a loop over which bindings to mount. Pivot, Shift, Griffon, or Attack2. AT, GW, OG, etc. They might have to be red. Or yellow. Or red and yellow. Is it worth buying two sets of bindings just for an aesthetic? Hmmm

    Tough decision! Having matching colors would be pretty sweet. I've got a funky pair of mismatched pivot 18s going on mine. Seems fitting!

    Also, it wasn't until I got them in person that I realized the topsheets are the banana and the Chipotle pepper bicycle jousting against each other, both holding flaming Chipotle peppers as their jousting staffs haha Classic Moment.

    On my Ghost Trains, which were wider at 124 underfoot, i ran the 115mm brake no problem. Going to do the same on my Chipotles.

    I’m sure there’s some hot takes in the thread and I’m sure the ski is sick...but it basically looks like a jibby renegade. What am I missing?

    Good question, havent really considered how similar they are. On paper, Chipotles have a longer length 193, have a longer radius, 300 grams per ski heavier, and have more effective edge. Considering that, it may actually be the other way around where the Renegade could be more powder oriented, and the Chipotles are more versatile.

    Havent skied the Renegade, and not sure how the flex profiles differ, so cant really provide a definitive comparison.

    Heh. I think the more fair comparison is to the 196 renegade. Jibbier more forgiving version of that tank...

    Oh, I was thinking of the current 191 version. The old 196 would be a whole different beast.
