    These skis are a great all around weapon. Bump so someone grabs them.

    Except these were listed way back last winter before re-posting. I know because I would have bought them if they were the next size down I ended up buying a new pair from Keith in a 182, love em!

    Have the same stick from the same vintage, fucking love them! Spent more time on those this season than anything else, super sweet deal especially considering the nice binder adjustment. Also shocked these didnít go this winter.

    These became my go to going on a trip and donít know what to expect ski. I took them to Steamboat when I was there in late February/early March, when all of Colorado had the huge avalanche issue. Steamboat had one of those weeks where it just dumbs feet of ultra light snow and the Qs did great. Tight trees, open pow fields, steep chutes, pillow fields, groomers, they just worked great.

    I will say Iím not the biggest fan of them in Jackson if they have rested and regained their camber. But when I ski them a bunch of days in a row, and I ski the camber out of them, they are exactly what I wanted, a replacement for my Shiros.

    What do you mean Alpy? The camber and rocker profile changed and matured (?) over time. If I didnít use them and they rested they went back to being camber skis.

    I had perhaps assumed a skiís camber lessened over time w/ use and as the flex of the ski softened. Skis become less poppy/responsive and more flat over time. I didnít know lost camber could be regained.

    That said I donít always mind the decline Iíve experienced, depending on how burly the build was out of the gate. I have not experienced (or noticed) the rebirth.

    I actually prefer them with no camber and slightly softer. Not very TGR of me
