What you say the Renoun 80 compares to? I was looking to get a Laser AX (or possibly White Out Blossom) but clearly this would be a much better price and support the site.

It has a qicker turn in than both of these and makes a bit of a more round turn. I will say the differences are nuances but the ski is definitely on par.

Sold skis removed. Still some good deals. What isn't sold here will be headed to ski swaps.

How would that DPS Foundation Cassiar compare to my 2017 Atomic Vantage 90's? Complementary? Or too similar?

A nice step up in the same category. IMHO, a better ski both on piste, more playful and a better off piste with more rise in the tip and much better in the bumps.

Tell me a little about the DPS Alchemist 79 160cm?
These are a little longer than I wanted. How's the rocker profile? (I can't find much on these)
DPS always strikes me as a sidecountry or backcountry ski. These sound like they can really rip up the groomers.

Thanks,

Matt

And @Tony S's review here:

2018-19 DPS Cassiar 79 Alchemist "The Trainer" 167cm
Second time on this ski. Loved it the first time. Loved it the second time. Look, can you really ski arc to arc? Really? Like serious continuous railroad tracks the whole way down? Be honest here. Can you? Most of you can't. Sorry, but it's true. I've been watching. Maybe you don't want to. That's fine. But if you do, this is your ski. Easy to bend but grippy as hell. So so so so fun. Yes, people were calling it binary, with a bit of a scowl. Well, yeah. You're either doing it or you're not. It's a trainer. Thumbs up, thumbs down. Spend time on this and nearby thumbs will go up. Your own thumb will go up. Okay, better stop there.
  • Who is it for? You want to improve your skiing and you mean it.
  • Who is it not for? You want to improve your skiing but you're kidding yourself.
  • Insider tip: For a slalom-esque ski, this skis short. I ski a 155 real SL but a 167 in this ski. Buy long. There is now a 174cm model. Most guys should be on that one. Only really small people belong on the 160.
