their production methods cannot possibly parallel K2's, and I also believe they are hand made. I would go with the amplids because I saw that they demonstrate a great understanding of tech specs on their site, and they have sick designs. because youre a heavier guy, i think that amplid's fatter than normal skis would help you stay on your feet
www.amplid.com check em out! or www.lab15.com i forgot which works, probably both, anyway my friend has a pair and swears by them, he has the antidogmas centre mounted, says they have great pop and feel like nothing in the air.

new north american brand, small with only about 7 different skis available to buy, in engalnd they have had great reviews before the season, there are good deals on them here.
However i do believe that if you go onto annsummers.com you can buy a pair that can be transformed into some sort of sex toy, still working out now but will buy them for the missus. Plus you get two toys for the price of one. BARGAIN
