    WTB: Stouter touring ski, 105-115 waist, 187+cm, >1900g

    ***NOTE*** looking for lighter than 1900g, not "greater than"

    Basically looking for a Blizzard Zero G 108 but open to other options that are directional, can punch some denser snow and chop, stand up to a big guy driving them, and still weigh less than my current Dynafit Chugach. Whachugot?

    you want something heavier than 1900g?

    192 ZeroG 108 is easy to find at $375 right now. What are you waiting for?

    You should PM whatsupdoc. His 181s are too short for me at this spot in my quiver.

    Thanks for all the replies. I'm aware of ZG 108 out there for under $400. Just thought it would be good to check with the collective first. Knowledge+community usually leads to a better choice.

    Already have HyperV8 for light pow ski. To reiterate: looking for similar to ZeroG 108 or Sendr 112. Skis that inspire confidence in non-perfect pow, wind-affected, sierra cement, firm and chalky steep chutes to powdery aprons...

    The Corvus is a good option if it's not too heavy. Very stable, predictable ski in fucked conditions. Great into about a foot of pow. Good edge hold too. Full rocker but very mild. Very little tail splay. Mine are 2020 and 2030g in 188.

    Scott Scrapper 115? Ptex has em for $299 (I think) in the gear swap thread.
    Blister review
    https://blisterreview.com/gear-revie...t-scrapper-115

    I have the Punisher 110 (108?) . like it. Scrapper described as tad more directional, a little stiffer. Weight and dims are in your range.

    D'oh! Just realized I put the greater than symbol the wrong way. I was hacked! No. Sorry, actually looking for sub-1900g skis.

    Thanks all for the replies. I often use threads like this when I'm shopping to find multiple options in one place -and also a fair amount of info on the different skis. The communal knowledge here is really amazing.
