climbing yes, for sure! 

I like a solid feeling ski but I don't think its mutually inclusive of being heavy. The icelantics for instance are pretty lightweight but very solid feeling. OTH, I agree that a light, "tinny" ski just doesn't seem to be as stable or have that 'feel" I think we're all talking about.

Just wanted to say that I went ahead and ordered a pair of the Ullr Chariots. 
I'll give a fuill ski report based on hand flexing and torsion testing later in the month.  ;D ;D

And, as Ron so aptly put it, I too have made mistakes in the past and will again in the future.

Congrats??? Hope so.? Too intrigued to pass up.? >:D >:D? If not, I'll hang them on a wall somewhere.
My style and fashion department (Lynn) confirmed my preference for the "Elvira" artwork.? I liked the fact that both skis make a single picture, which is also what I really admired about the Hart ?Pulse? that you were consulting/involved with.?

Wellll, I "could" order you a pair with that topsheet, but probably would work better if YOU cut me out as a middleman.? ;D ;D Time to call PhilPug.
If you're serious (but I believe there is a pair of Keeper's in your future),? ??? I assume you know that you can order any of their skis with any of their topsheet designs, and they are now showing a new Tiger design on their webpage??

all are very cool and congrats!  I have the new Keepers right now. I will ski them and see how they do. Sticking with the 88's and Keepers for now. I will ski them in December and then go from there. I am hoping they prove to be versitile and quick enough for tighter trees. They should be pretty good just based on the fact they have a fair amount of the tip rocker and modest tail rocker. Time will tell!

BUT more importantly, those are some beautiful ski's and I am anxious to see some pics of the rocker profile and actual taper on the tip/shovel.

Congrats. I am glad that smeone else was first with the Keelty induced impulse purchase this year. I usually win that prize. As I said in the other thread, I will have these out on snow in early November. I will post my view and Harald Harbs view because he will try these as well as we are skiing together. I will also test drive the Howitzers as well.

Jim, sure seems like you are buying some awesome skis. Congrats and enjoy!!

We can only hope, but thanks.? :) It's like an unopened Christmas present, not sure whether you'll like what's inside or not. ;D ;D So Lynn was picking on me a bit, asked me if I planned on getting these in, putting them in the corner to look at for a few weeks, and then selling them?? Or did I actually plan on skiing them??

JB:? Unless they get a lot of snow early out west (not consistent with SnowHot's posted prognostication) it will probably be January before I ski them.? Early December trip may be to Vermont (cause East coast get early winter) and then a January trip to Utah (or Colorado if Lynn's new boots are needing a lot of attention).?

She needs to ski them a few days first to see what develops, but is very hopeful that not much will be required.? She shell-fit herself at 23.5 when the store guy measured her at a 25, but the boots still felt amazingly comfortable (considering) in both length and width.? Only time will actually tell, but bound to be a dramatic improvement.? I'm almost sorry that her new-boot joy is getting lost amidst the new ski and boot and binding stuff.? I am strongly leaning towards the power rail bindings, but want to physically see them at a local store before I too buy from Philpug.

Ullr's Chariot follow-up.? Here's what the graphics on my ski may look like.? I wanted something unique that was easily identifiable to help keep the skis from walking away.? Initially I was going to put on my name, but thanks to others' comments about the effects that would have on potential resale, I decided to use "Gandalf" a name that I have used in various computer contexts since I read "The Hobbit" some 30 years ago.? Here is the picture of how they suggested integrating that into the topsheet as a Tattoo on "Elvira's" arms.

Gandolf,
I liked that artwork. Suggestive figure of a woman, at least to my eyes. Cool on you!
