By contrast, the CT 3.0 184 has a definite role that to me it excels in: it is an amazing "cheater" fresh powder snow/chopped snow bump ski and tree ski,
no equal that I currently can recall, that I've been on - especially for wider soft snow skis (though the old and final 116 K2 Obsethed was close, with its softer flex and yet longer length).
For me, no matter what tune or flattening is on it, it has a speed limit, for my ski profile, on long vertical, open, fast charging but sometimes very uneven terrain, even in soft snow.
But at the slightly slower speeds required or best for really dealing with/playing with soft snow bumps and trees, man, this ski is dialed in,
just so perfect for that. Almost automatic.
(And even the other years' versions of the 3.0 Ct 183/184 ski have this ability, though those have more of a speed limit than the '21 version.)
(I gather that the CT 2.0 may have this ability also, in a bit less snow at maximum.)
