    Next: 2016 KÄSTLE MX98 184. About 60 or so days on them. No core shots or top sheet chips, but there are some light scratches on both. These skis have just been broken in. My last pair of MX98 had 200+ days on them and still had plenty of life. $400 sans bindings, or $600 with P14.

    Convenient for me! I may need to hit you up for more info on the MX. Moved back to Mid East coast and looking for a groomer. I never really skied kastles. I’ve heard good things. I think I need 84’s based on what I’m told and aging knees.

    Moving away from 98 wrens which I liked a lot but still cant see them as a true groomer because I needed to slarve them into turns. Loved them as an all around ski.

    If you have time I’d appreciate your comments on them though.

    I ski the rockies. 95% in UT. 5% scattered around WY and CO. What I can tell you is that during the past 6 or so years, I have put about 325-350 out of 450 or so days on MX 98. They have a 27m radius, ash and fir sandwiched by 2 layers of metal and rubber dampening throughout. ABS sidewall and positive camber.
    I have skied Brahmas, Bonafides, Mantras, Kendos, and Scot Schmidt Pros, and can tell you that the Kastles are beefier, more stable, faster and less chattery than all of the above. You need to be on top of them, or they will kick your ass. The turning radius is for those who prefer medium big mountain turns. The skis don’t over flex, over turn or wash out. Don’t buy these if you are looking for a forgiving ski, even like the ones mentioned above. I don’t think that an expert, or accomplished skier can buy a more precise, versatile or smoother big mountain ski for groomers, chop, crud and boot high soft snow. Best thing about the ski is its ability to cut through and finish entire turns smoothly and confidently.
    Probably my favorite ski ever.

    Nice synopsis, I have been amazed with the mx88's. I would have bought these if it were 3 months ago.
