If you'll indulge a comparative newb on ski terminology... What does "forgiving underfoot" mean? What does stiffness and/or forgiveness underfoot (relative to say either of the skis I own) translate into when I make a mistake skiing (I am often backseat on steeper stuff)? Given that these will only come out on a soft snow day, are you suggesting that the MFree 182 (I can't imagine skiing anything in 192) will have poorer grip on groomers (not that there will be tons of skiing groomers on these, but getting down at the end of day at Fernie on shitty skied out connectors is a real thing, as is everything frontside at Lake Louise)...Deals on all 22 skis starting now if not already, so a very low risk gamble at 30-40% off.
The light DPS 112 is a surfy, easy to turn ski at slow speeds in untracked snow but falls apart in tracked snow, variable snow and not as fun in bumps or on groomers vs the Enforcer 110. Just saved you more money! Haha
The MFree 108 has similar flex to the Enforcer 110 in the tip/tail but the E110 much softer and forgiving underfoot. The MFree 108 in 182cm is more surfy because of even deeper rocker lines and increased taper with the 192cm version being more “serious”. The 185cm Enforcer 110 is a happy medium between being surfy and easy on soft snow but still giving decent grip on groomers.
