    "Release the tails"? Not so much. At least not making GS/SG race turns on icy conditions with a .7 base tune.

    Needless to say, I would suggest a 1* base grind.

    As for sizing, the 180 will take you faster than I'm able to go or comfortable with, along with the HDT. The stuff really works.

    How do the Z90's compare to the MX89's? I might have missed the comparison if it's buried in this thread. I've skied the Z90's and plenty of Kastles, just not the MX89's.

    Wow, I got them yesterday! I am going to try to get them to Bluezone for mounting this afternoon and try to ski them tomorrow. Usually I wouldn't consider brand new skis this late in the season, but, yeah, coverage is . . . good.

    Here is a picture of the tails for @Jay Townsend :

    My thumb is on the point where they touch the table.

    Photo is not showing up, but it could be me as I'm in China and the internet is a bit weird here

    Thanks for posting it though! Hope you enjoy the skis
