It sounds weird and hoarder/overlap-queenish but I think I need both. Despite the fact that they're the same shape +/- 2mm, they feel remarkably different and each have their own place in my quiver.
    Too add on, my 184's are mounted +1 due to hole conflicts. I've never really experienced tip dive but I'm not that heavy and Sierra snow is pretty supportive. I really like them at +1, they feel a bit more agile when spinning off tiny hits and bouncing through tight trees.

    I might be moving to San Diego this spring so I might have to sell off some of the quiver... don't know if I can continue to justify owning to two Bibbycats.

    As an aside to the present conversation, I'm a 184 all the way on the Wildcat. Tried a 190 and I was working up and down that ski to get it turning. But sweet baby jesus could I go fast through anything. (178cm tall, 76kg). I think it was on the Blister podcast that Luke said if the Wildcat length is up around your eyes, that's about right. I can definitely vouch for that.
    Iím an East coast firm snow skier & with the CMD at 3/.05 bevels in a 178, they rail. I was using em on the Womenís WC hill post race & there was no issue on injection snow. They need a lot of real estate to properly turn. Iíve occasionally run GS & coached juniors on em with no issues. GO shorter, rather than longer.

    I donít find them overly damp, but they are on the stiffer side of things- not as stiff as a SL ski with a plate & a metal clamp- but torsionally stiff. They are not a noodle- I do feel that they are sluggish in the wet/soft unless on edge. These are the first sub 180 Ski I have really been happy with. They are a few CM over my head & had me thinking I could pull off a 168 108- likely would stay 178. They are a charging carver that also handles variable crap well.

    Melee, i have interest in a couple models, but gotta space purchases apart for monetary reasons. I'm assuming Commander 124 is gonna be in the lineup for a bit, but Chip BanaŮa only preseason preorder?

    Both will be in the lineup all season long but at very limited volumes. If things sell out we always do our best to go back and make more of whats in demand.

    That being said if these skis are sold out later in the season we probably wont make more until the following winter...

    Just a heads up...Chipotle Bananas are now in stock and shipping a little earlier than our projected ship date.

    If you have a pre-order you will receive a tracking number today/tomorrow.

    If you want to order a pair we have some very limited inventory available on the website.

    Cool
    Any way to get an actual rocker/camber photo base to base for each model(CB, C124).
    I know there's a representation on the site, but I cant tell shit from it

    Actually, I think I get good enough idea of C124, but shot of CB would be good

    They are made in the same press as Meridian, so you can check meridian review on blister

    CB 193 will have the same full rocker line as the CB 186.

    Canít remember if there is any comparisonís in this thread, (maybe the old one?) of the CB and the Meridian 117... anyone skied both and care to comment? Iíve had the CBs for a few seasons and am considering switching to 117 or 184 Wildcat for a bit more versatility.

    For versatility you want the Wildcat for sure.

    The guys at Third Edge Heli have about 20 pairs and have been skiing them with clients all summer long in South America. They are loving them. No official reviews yet but hoping to get some more detailed feedback soon.

    I guess I should have noted that this would still be a soft snow/pow ski. Already have the firm stuff covered and skied Bibbys for years. Maybe back to the Bibby/wildcat. But the slarve of the full rocker. I guess Iím answering my own question.

    I think the meridian 117 handles conditions besides untracked a lot better than many give it credit for.

    Iíve owned the Meridian 117 and Bibby. The Bibby is a much better mixed conditions ski but the meridian feels dramatically looser in soft snow. I feel like what really sets the Bibby apart is that does so many things well. The Ďsuspensioní of the Bibby is much better over 3D surfaces.

    If you ski centered and are on soft conditions the Meridian will be the ski.

    My main issue with the Meridian was that it never felt long enough. Even in a 187 it felt short at 6í3Ē.

    Iím trying to figure out what i can sell to get the CB 193... it wonít be The Bibby as they ski pretty differently.

    Thatís the beta Iím looking for, thanks to you and lemon head!
    That looseness is what is so great about the CB and the fact that you can lock them on when you want and they are crazy stable. My aging knees just donít care for the torque that the 122 waist CB put on them once things get tracked up or cruddy. Iím tempted to try a Meridian 107, but the CB sets a high bar for what a reverse camber ski can be.
