i skied a good 20 days on my gotamas this summer. i busted 3 sidewalls but i warrantied em.
i rode a 190 (i'm 5'10, 160)
compared to the explosive, the ex would be like a sporty fat ferrari, and the gotama would be like a big fat v16 bentley. its easy to got mach 25 anywherere, though, the gotama is an even surface ski. as soon as it get choppy its too wide and tries to float on shit and doesn t have the stiffness to blow through it. but here no ones makes tracks, so its pretty sick. i wouldn t recomment it as a tourer or a resort ski, its quite heavy, i see it more as a big fat powder day, i m gonna bomb through everything before all of you day. i found also that the soft tail was quite forgiving when huckin shit. i started huckin shit. (pics and video comming soon). the wide surface and softness really allow you to stick a hole lot of shit easilly. The fat twin kills all the opposition that tries to follow you....
