CL3M3NTINOI actually have a pair of lsm Kartel 108's and I think for park skiing they are amazing, of course they're heavy but swingweight wise they don't feel to bad and it's fairly easy to spin 7's and stuff. Also for butters and manuals and stuff they are the best skis if ever skied and in pow they float quite well. The only downside is that you lose quite a lot of stability in cut up snow dew to the softer fiberglass so they get deflected quite a bit. But overall I would totally recommend this ski if you're in search for a playful wide park ski.
CLQWhats great about ON3P is that you can call/email the CEO. But whats your height and weight?

SlunkyYeah I actually talked to him in discord but I wanted to get some rider testimonials, I’m 6 ft about 175 and I’m planning on getting the 186
CLQI weigh 135 and got the the softer fiberglass. I haven't skied it yet but by flex alone I would say you should definitely get the stock flex. The flex is good for someone light like me for an all mountain ski but I don't think it will be good for you if want an all mountain ski. sorry for spelling and grammar im in class
SlunkyThey’re sort of gonna be my everyday pow ski at whis, have you skiid big mtn type stuff on them? Basically I know they’ll be fun for jibby pow skiing type stuff but I’m worried they’ll be too soft for drops n suck although apparently softer fibreglass only makes them 5-7% softer
CL3M3NTINOI did drop some smaller 4-5m cliffs on the lsm kartel 108 and the ski provided a kind of solid landing platform and as long as you have a smooth runout I think there isn‘t that much difference between the softer or the stock kartels. For anything bigger or with not that smooth snow conditions, I think you would be better off with the stock flex. Also for tight technical stuff such as jumpturns in couliors it might be better to have the stock flex because it will give you more control if you get in to the backseat. Anyway you can for sure have a lot of fun skiing the lsm in pow with a playfull style and more upright not to agressiv riding style, but for big mountain skiing the stock or even stiff flex might work better because it makes the ski more of a „charger“ and alows you to do bigger drops and stuff.

Rum_HamIf you’re at Whistler I’d definitely go with the stock flex. There’s so much great terrain there id definitely want a stiffer ski
