I just got a pair for 700$CA so more or less 500$US. The Falketind was 670$CA

Marlow,
The Falketind has more rocker than the E-88. It is also less cambered. It will be shorter in 180 than your E-88 in 179. So I guess I am recommending a 180 IF 179 worked for you in the E-88.
If you need the numbers for rocker I could pull the tape measure out. If you have any specific questions I would be happy to answer to the best of my ability. I’ve been skiing the Falketind a couple of seasons now.

Thanks all and Fisheater !! I believe i am more interested in Rabb so maybe the 180 ? Really dont want to deal with all this international stuff so trying to work with Neptune. I got a response from place in UK and Canada for gear already.

Per johhny I was looking for the 40mm race skins and the 74mm access skins but they won't be getting these
Per Norseman in CA local users seem to be enamoured with the 58mm mohair (back-country use) & 45mm nylon (trail use)

I am not into using wax other than annual hot wax :) but maybe need to learn more about waxing because getting the right combo of skins would be important with the Rabbs !
