Wait for it to snow and I will let you know how the 08's are ;)
I hear the 08 is better in soft snow, where as the 07 holds an edge better because it has a more effective edge without the rocker. I made a post about this alittle while back, do a search for it. I have never skied a rockered ski, and am really amped to get some runs on these puppies. remember k2 skis are measured at contact points, so a 179 is a 183-4.
