rudolphGet some Kartels, you won't regret it. J Ski durability comes into question and the marksman is a great ski, but has too much asymmetricalness for my liking. Kartels will charge in any type of snow from pow to crud to slush, but they still allow you to go in the park hit rails/ rocks without getting edges cracks. The kartels link turns better then the two others, but if you are not landing switch, you should look at the wrens. Definitely worth spending a few more dollars now, then not be able to ski bc you had to warranty a inferior ski.
SessionFWIW I don't think landing switch is the difference between getting a Kartel, and getting a Wren. They are different in their flex profile, and turn radius as well. I don't land switch, and prefer the playfulness of the Kartel over the Wren.
BrawnTrendsHaven't tested either the Kartel or the Metal, but I have the Marksman in 184 (mounted -2 from center) and I love them. Really nimble for the size.
ArseneFoxi'm also interested in the marksman, can you give me your height and weight for reference?
