    Revised Kusala Size Poll

    Changing poll to get a better feel on what size options will work best for the most people. Previous poll post is gone.
    This poll allows multiple choice so you can choose a 186 or 191 and also say you'll take a 189 if that's what it takes or what most want.
    As I asked in the previous poll that led to the creation of this poll with updated options....

    Would a 189 be a happy medium between the two that would appeal to both 186 and 191 aspirants?
    Nobody ever stretches a ski out only 3 cm but, as I've said before, I like small changes because they tend to more precisely retain the quality characteristics of a real performer with a special feel. But, hey, that's just me. I know some of you guys that would prolly love a 194. Hell, so would I. But we get a shot to make this ski again - and make it longer, by what I think I've read, so I'm just throwing that out here so I feel confident all things are being considered.

    Is it really that easy to just change the length of a ski without changing the feel? I am in the market for a new Palski. I would probably prefer the 191 because it is a proven formula. In my perfect world The 191 would be made to original specs and materials with a choice of topsheet Like mother Theresa or crystals

    The 191 has not been built. Only the 186 has.

    OK. Thanks. I thought that I read that you were on a pair of 191s, and that you really dug them.?.
    It's kinda tough for me personally to buy skis that no one has been on
    ....but then again, I think that with a 5cm difference, it may just be splitting hairs.

    Prefer 191, 189, or 186, in that order.

    I actually like the thought of the 189 now, especially if it is 189 tip to tail straight pull

    186, 189, 191 in that order with an exceedingly high preference for tried and true 186. I have cash in my pocket from Maude, and already whittled the quiver down to 16, so ready to buy immediately.

    There's an actual poll, btw, if anyone missed that. I did.
    Need to log in via a web browser on a computer, if it doesn't show up on your phone.

    189 if that helps with a single length run, I would be fine on the 191 as well.

    191 would be my preference, but would do 189. 186 =Tuco more than likely out.
