  1. BOB ST.PIERRE, I really need some feedback on your testing of the 2020 DPS WAILER 100 RP ALCHEMIST 179 cm
    I am your size probably a less skilled . quickness is paramount to me as I enjoy tight off piste lines. Will I overwhelm the 179cm?

    insight appreciated regards Greg

    1. Hi Greg!
      Tight turns and lines are right up the Wailer 100’s alley. The RP shape really accentuates the quick-turning nature of the ski, and the dual-carbon laminates make it pretty stiff. I wish I tried the 184 for a bit of extra stability at speed, as the 179 did feel a bit short. But if you’re looking for quickness, the 179 will be a great size. If you’re skiing fast and aggressive and you’re my size, you might overwhelm the 179–there’s a bit of a learning curve to the shape and style of the ski. Hope that helps!
      Bob
