skidemon22this is probably a little skinnier than you were looking for, but the Rocker2 100 has full sidewalls, and is pretty stiff. I'm not sure about the 108s flex, but i do know that it is a cap/monocoque construction, not sidewall. I have the rocker2 100 in a 186 and the things are pretty beefy. just a though. but Cody Townsend does ski the 108 pretty hard and he seems to do all right...

Titsandwich11why is this?
skidemon22thats a very good question. I'm guessing that they wanted more solid construction in the 100 so that it could handle park skiing and all mnt skiing better, where as the 108 is really meant for soft/ fresh snow outside of the park, and trees. the 100 is pretty burly too, and a but on the heavy side
safarisamGo with the Automatic.
Are you looking to do directional skiing with them?? What terrain are you skiing?
I've skied the Automatics and the rocker2 100- not quite the ski youre looking at.
sagerobI have the Rocker2 108 and they're pretty fun for slow to medium speed jibbing all around the mountain. At Higher speeds, They hold up pretty well, but at higher speeds they get just a little bit twitchy, but nothing bad. They are super fun off piste and in the trees and they ski powder good. I'm 6'2" 170lbs and ski maybe 20/20/60 park/groomers/off piste and I like them. I'd say if you're looking to do a good amount of switch skiing, get the rocker2, if not though it seems like the automatics are liked better for charging.
OutoftownerDoing a bit more research, I think I am going to hold out until September and get the new Salomon QST 106s. Looks like the exact ski I am looking for. Probably pair them with another set of STH2 16s. Have them on my current skis and really like them
Review to come next season.
LC.You'll overpower every ski mentioned in this thread.
