I've got a pair, love'em. I also have a pair of Gotama's, they ski pretty similar. They kill the whole mountain, stomp landings(better than Got), edge hold(not sure yet, haven't had and really hard stuff).. my guess would be the Got is better here. Bases are more durable, topsheet gets chewed up easily. Lightweight for a ski this size(183). I've had these in waist deep powder and they handled it well. High speed stability, got wins, VCT skis a bit shorter because of the more upturned rear tail.
