    you find the rocker on the 108 intriguing? I was interested to see it and when I got my hands on a pair noticed very little tip rocker and more tail rocker than tip rocker. Doesn't make much sense to me, I'll stay E104, E110, E115

    That’s kinda my point. It doesn’t seem to be how I’d want a ski to be designed but all the reviews and first hand accounts are that it is a great off piste ski that also handles groomers. Kinda the opposite of the Enforcer 104 yet more playful and energetic than the Enforcer 110. We will see if I get the chance to try them out this winter.

    Nordica Enforcers - TGR-Enough for Their Own Thread

    I thought the exact same about the Season Aero. The Aero also has very little tip and tail rocker. Camber to both ends. Yet still it skis kind of loose when you want. But grippy. I like it. Interested to see how the Unleashed skis with a similar profile. I’ll wait and see for now. Got the Season Nexus instead. Thinking that the Unleashed shape (less rocker, more camber) needs a more forward mount to be “loose”.

    I was in Vancouver BC this weekend. The extremely favorable exchange rate and “spirit of KC” overcame me and a pair of 2022 186 Enforcer 100’s followed me home across the border. Weird how that happened.

    Thanks for leaving some of those high value greenbacks up here in Van. Enjoy the Enforcer 100s.

    I’m close to mounting my 179cm Enforcer 88’s….still shocked I own a ski that skinny. They’re gonna be fast!

    Also just picked up a pair of 2023 172cm Enforcer 88s for my wife from Snowcountry.eu. Will look good with red/black Griffons. And means she won’t steal my 179s.

    Question for you Enforcer gurus… can the 191 E110 charge harder than the 191 E104? I LOVE the E104 in every situation except I’m able to find the speed limit pretty easily. It can get a little twitchy on me when I’m absolutely hauling and I’d like to replace it with something that has a higher top-end. If the E110 (or even the E115) fit that description, I might pull the trigger. Also looking at the 192 M-Free 108 as a possible replacement…

    I’ll take the bait since I have owned every ski you mentioned in the Big Boy lengths.

    The 191 E104 is a great all around ski and it has a fairly high speed limit, but as you point out, a big, strong skier can find it. The 191 E110 is a bit more damp and obviously a better powder ski, but it has a similar speed limit, IMO. The E115 is a heavier stiffer ski and can be pushed harder than the other two, but much is more soft snow specific. I wish Nordica would make the E110 with the slightly bigger turn radius and flex of the E115. That ski would RULE!

    I sold my 191 E110 since I got a pair of 192 MFree 108’s and they are just more fun than the Enforcers. They are looser in deep snow and just more dynamic in tight spaces. I’m not 100% sure that the MFree charges hard, though.

    I’d recommend a Volkl Katana K108 in the 191. Heck the Katana in a 184 has a significantly higher top end versus the E104. The E104 might have a heavy wood core and a metal laminate construction, but it’s still an Enforcer. You trade the top end stability for versatility.

    Do you feel more confident charging on the MF108 compared to the E104/110? Or about the same? I’d still love to have the playfulness and the maneuverability at slower speeds so I’m afraid to pull the trigger on Katanas. I don’t see the word “playful” being used to describe those beasts.

    Katanas are NOT playful. That’s fair.

    The 192 MFREE 108 is about is close to the “playful charger” with the bias toward playful that I can think of. The 192 is not a “soft” flexing ski. It doesn’t have metal and it has a good amount of camber, but it can be pushed very, very hard. I think it is more composed than the E104 at speed. The E110 is more damp, can be skied in deep snow in a very “loose” style, but the MFREE is looser in the tail and way more fun. The E110 is damp and torsionally stiff, but just not as stable as other skis with two sheets of metal. As I said earlier, that’s kind of an Enforcer trait.

    Mind you, I have a ton of skis. I ski the MFREE when it’s soft and I’m skiing in technical terrain or trees. I don’t ski them in low tide conditions. You can, it’s just not their sweet spot, IMO.

    Anybody holding 104 Frees in 186 they’re looking to pass on? I’m over my 188 Corvus and their tip dive and demanding performance. I want something a little easier to move around and a little better on lower tide conditions.

    Not selling mine. But they definitely fill the roll you just described. Fun ski for 80% of INW conditions

    Sweet, thanks! I’m down to the Deathwish 104 or the Enforcer 104 and the Enforcer seems so much easier to find and a little better at being a jack of all trades.
