Ok, I have a pair of last years Evolv 90, 179, with STH16s, less than 10 runs on them. $325 + ship . Hard to beat a deal like that!
Me big dude, ski down mountain like graceful boulder. 6'3", 215. Too short?

Anybody got a vote on the 2020 Elan Ripstick Black edition in 188 for this throwdown?
No. It's a great ski. I own it (shorter). But not a big guy charger IMHO.

We’re close to the same size. I’ve skied the 179 and 186 Evolv90 and 100. I bought the 186.
Did you go 90 or 100? Having a hard time deciding. I'm leaning 100, but that's mostly because I fear too much overlap with my C87, even though they will be totally different skis.

Which one felt more damp and chargy? The target ski is the one that feels most stable and planted at speed, but we're talking east coast, boot deep chunk at best. This is the ski I'll haul to the top of Tuckerman's or try to haul ass down an open steep one like Liftline at Stowe.

I went with the 90. The 100 is more stable and chargy because of the added width. Kinda sounds like the 100 would suit your needs better.
