have not picked up the ski yet and don't expect to be skiing for awhile
I am writing this review on the women's dps zelda 106 tour which is basically the same exact ski as the wailer 106 tour (just a different color top sheet).
As my title states, this ski is in fact a game changer. I did a 4 mile tour on these and was able to haul ass. The ski is nice and light (mounted with the Dynafit Speed Radical) without sacrificing the width to keep you afloat in the pow. The skinning surface area gives you enough traction to make it up the steeper skin tracks. The 18mm turning radius allows you to maneuver the skis through tight trees. I am 5'3" and on the 168 and would not have gone shorter or longer. The 168 length is just downright perfect.
This ski is a must have in your quiver.
And seriously, ladies, who doesn't like the grape purple top sheet!
