The new BD carbon Justice in the picture is pretty sweet also.
Love to hear your comparison of the Wailer112 vs Hi5 as I choose one to replace my mantras for resort and backcountry. Posted a longer version of this question and related boot question at http://www.wildsnow.com/5292/la-sportiva-hi5-ski-review/comment-page-2/#comment-39571
For some reason they are not posting my response to your question on WS.From personal experience I agree on the Boa liners as well. One of the best boot fitters in Cham seems to as well and is forced into replacing almost evey BD sell with a Palau liner. Almost a joke when I came in to get my new liners remolded again. They were willing but I had to suggest the new liner…then I was told the “joke” about the Boa. Ca..ching..add $150 to the price of your new BD boots.Both are great skis imo. 112s have a higher speed limit on groomed than the Hi5 which shouldn’t be a surprise. But I have no desire to out pace either in good snow. The 105/112 mid ski you would notice as well. No desire to ski the 112s with skins or in the back country though unless it is lift served …like tram, a snow cat or Helo..
