tomPietrowskiI have not skied the 118 but I have been testing the 95 which although narrower keeps a lot of the same characteristics. They are a charger, they just want to go fast. They feel like a beefed up version of the atomic automatic to me. If you like to shred hard and charge tey could be awesome. They do come up long, I have the 184 and they are big on me at 5'11 and 160lbs
36ChambersOfWuAs a relatively skinny person I don't want them to be so stiff I can't flex/ride them
36ChambersOfWuI have since read into the pinnacles and petittors a lot and think i will still be able to charge in the petittors
36ChambersOfWuOne be thing which doea help on the pepitor is a more forward mount. Don't be afraid to go -2 or even -1cm on them.
so i am also planning on touring with these, i have marker dukes, to shed weight i was either going to get kingpins or go for a CAST setup. I real question is should trust the kingpins hitting 20 foot cliffs and skiing tuckermans ravine, or should i spend the extra money, and get CAST for that extra assurance on the downhill?
