Both are good skis, but I would recommend something in between these two widths. If you're using it for you're everyday ski, the two are too far on either side of the spectrum. A head mojo 90 or a line profit 90 will fullfill your requirements much better. The two are on the stiffer side of the chart, which is better for freeriding, but won't be two stiff for park riding. Swingweight is low on both skis. If you're set on the karma, remember, the public enemy skis alot like it (a little more wash at the finish of the turn), but is much cheaper. Volkl is also coming out with a twin that is even cheaper than the pe. I don't remember what the dimentions are, but I will check tomorrow at work if you're interested and respond to this.
