A- this should be in gear talk
B- I've ridden the 195 mothership, they are pretty sweet. Although you have to be a man to handle them. This is seriously one of the only skis I might be okay with riding the 2nd largest model(185). Truthfully they are big mnt comp ski, is that what you want especially for japan? Stiff as shit, charge and are somewhat heavy because of the metal in them.
If I were going to japan I would be more apt to go for an s7 or a more jib orriented stiff powder ski than a hard charging single tail....but to each his own.
