after spending 2 days on the black Label including today which was knee deep, I can say I am impressed. :) Review pending. if the RC is even close to as good as this Black label, the RC is a winner.
Ron, did you see my review from a couple weeks ago? Test week.#2 coming up!

Does the prototype come in a 172? I've only seen a 180. I dig the color scheme. Actually, I like last year's "black" version better but I like both

Presumably some version of that prototype is now the production Ripstick for 2021, that you can already buy.

This new RC measures 135-94-110 in a published 180cm length where the current Ripstick 96 is a 181 with dims of 134-96-113. So we are seeing a bit slimmer waist with a touch more taper in the tail.
Phil -- does the new RC (94 waist) replace the Ripstick 96? There are adverts out for 2021 Ripstick "96" --

Thanks!

Same ski, whiiel the Protos I have measure 94...the sizing is scaled and the 96mm is based off of the 188cm length.
