    • I mean, these things depend on a lot of factors, but for me personally, I have no interest in going longer, and I would not say that this is (in general) a ski that we’d be encouraging most skiers to go longer than they normally would.

  1. Any plans to review the 182s? And could you possible give an idea of the Woodsman vs the QST in terms of how punishing vs forgiving each is? I know that they are very different skis but the QST is my only point of reference at the moment. Thanks.

  2. First of all let me say thanks for the reviews you are doing. Spending several days on a ski is much different that the norm of 2 or 3 runs. The detail is great. I did listen to your very brief comments on the Blsck Crows Navis and then bought the ski. I wondering if you had in mounted on their recommended mounting point. I measured the recommended line as -12 from center. That seems like a lot to me. I am a bit skeptical. Can you let me me know where yours was mounted? Does -12 seem like a lot?

    • Hi Gary, I have the same concerns than you….where ended you up with the mounting point? DId you put the bindings on the line?
