KURO V. CHOPSTICK
I can't decide these two. I am thinking about getting the Kuro in 195 or the Chopstick in a 185. I have a pair of 185 bridges to use all mountain and park mounted between center and all mountain. Anyone have a suggestion? Has anyone ridden both of these that can help me compare and decide what to get? thanks.

I have chopsticks and love them. That being said for a pure pow ski I think the kuro would be much more fun. I dont ski switch or do switch landings a ton in pow so the kuro would be a much better ripper/charger pow ski. However the chopstick does absolutely slay pow. I just think for just doing lines and ripping forward the kuro would be much better due to the longer tip and skinnier tail. Sometimes I felt like the chopstick was a bit small in really deep stuff and wish it was like a 190 or so just because the centered mounting point makes them dive a bit if the slope isnt very steep. I think both would be really fun but if you don't ski switch or do a lot of spins and tricks the kuro would be the way to go hands down.
You really cant go wrong with either tho, volkl makes super nice stuff and they would perform great everywhere but they are both very different skis.
