I’ve been waiting for this article for awhile and the reviews. I plan to be a guinea pig on the MP77 unless @Philpug and Mike at Premier Skis tell me otherwise. I was looking at the PC77, but given my light weight (145lbs and 173cm tall) the part that jumped out at me from that ski’s review was “lighter and finesse skiers need not apply.”

I have a pair of Pivot 14s waiting for them.

I'd actually been looking that them for a while and thought the names - which are abbreviations - are pretty good. CRW is Cross Wide Ride or maybe Cross Wide Rocker (don't remember exactly), an all-mountain line. PC is Performance Carving. I didn't know the other two till reading them yesterday but they make sense to me.

And Lusti's ski selector is saying PC177 among other stuff. So many choices. I guess that's good.
