heavy as in the ANTs are much much lighter. it's insane how that big of a ski can be that lightweight.
i'd choose 190 gotamas/190 VCTs/190 EHPs or 191 ANTs over 189 madens any day of the week. personally i'm not too big of a fan of the madens.
you sound like you want some on3p's.
the gun lab isn't foam. it's 188cm, 101mm underfoot, and a wood core.
it also costs $800.
