i have volkl gotamas. they are the only ski that can handle my sheer awesomeness. i cant recommend them for everyone, because the new gotama with rocker sucks. if you can find a pair of the older, non rocker ski, in good condition then I can recommend it. even if it has that hideous 80's top sheet. the gold or white ones are ok, the black ones with gold print or the all black ones are preferable.
dead center mount. its so you can ski backwards in the snow.
