    Just stay away from Joey- heís an enabler.

    Props to S.B. for grabbing me some Orbs at the swap. However, got to say that Iím extremely underwhelmed w the shaping of the Orb (91 waist variant) the rest of the line seems purposefully built & this one is meh.

    Just a nod in the lift line and maybe a few beers in the parking lot.....no stickers or other identifiers needed other than what is clamped to your feet.

    The anima always struck me as a comparable to the wildcat, does anyone have experience to A/B between the two? Other than the obvious turning radii difference.

    The corvus was always a ski I've been trying to figure a spot for in the quiver, but when I got a hold of a pair the edges looked absurdly thin, like ski-mo thin and that put me off. With my reputation and the local terrain am i justified in my concerns about durability or are they lasting for people, especially for the premium price?

    How tall are you? I have the 175 cambered version and it is one of my all time favorites. I went to the 183 in last years model as well for this year. Im almost 5-7 180 lbs and I think Im going to be all set going bigger to 183. I also have last years atris in 178 new for this year.

    Iím 5í11Ē 190 and I was skiing the 183. I sold it and bought the 188. That was a mistake. Iím a strong skier and they are a little more then needed sometimes in tight terrain. Thatís were the 183 was great. It loves tight chutes and woods and then also ripping anything. I would take a 183 back in a heartbeat. Itís like the B97, one of those skis that a little shorter is sometimes the ticket.

    I havenít had any durability issues and I have definitely hit shit hard enough to know it should be bad and itís barely a scuff. The edges are fairly hard as well.

    Iím 5í11Ē, about 185 so very close to Joey but Iíd consider myself high end average?? Most blacks no issue. So Iím thinking he is better then I. I do tend to enjoy a shorter ski, had 189 atris and I really didnít get along with them at all. Mind you I spent limited time on them but I found my days on them not great and sold to a buddy.

    I just felt the 183 may be more versatile then the 189

    For my height/weight Im banking on the non cambered Corvus to less of a handful than the cambered. Although Im still looking for the 16-17 cambered in 183.

    Skis were dropped off yesterday. Even nicer in person. I really do like the chevrons but this design is solid as well. Click image for larger version.

    I see that they also have DPS's take on an Anima / Wildcat like ski, the original Koala119 in 184 and 179. So saddle up and get ready to charge, because they sure as hell can

    Yeah, the Koala 119 seems to be intruiging Brutes, a tad wide for my liking, but would be eager to try them. Conrad have the 189 on sale, atleast for Yurpians.

    yeah, I managed to find a pair of 184s this summer after I sold my first pair a year ago. I have a hard time understanding just how stiff the 189s must be though, my 184s are stiiiiiff, so at 15% stiffer the 189s must be positively chargy.

    It would be very, very interesting to try the current Anima, Moment Wildcat and both versions of the Koala 118/119 back to back

    Those noctas are a blast. I love my 190. Skis awesome in fresh untracked. Doesnít love chop but if you can ski active it does. Probably one of my favorite skis of all time. I have a Duke Pt 16 on them and they tour great as well. Hope that helps keep you from buying them.

    Have a bro trying to increase sales of black crows in Japan.

    Any advice?

    Seems like an under-appreciated brand over here.

    Well, everything seems to be under-appreciated.
