Thanks for thoughts,
I was dead set on Koms until I started looking at V6. I have a set of Charger BC that are too wide and too stiff for my uses.

The V6 seems to have a better rocker profile while the Kom tip is appealing. I'm going for the longer as I am chunky these days.

Which is lower camber of the two, that might influence my choice as with alpine skis I generally prefer low to flat or even slight reverse camber. But I realize a ski like this needs some camber to keep the fish scales from dragging.

Which is better at slow speed?
I just checked, camber is about the same on both skis.

I think the KOM is better at slow speed, as mentioned above, but I'm running a longer length V6 so that would make sense.

Al asked if the pattern was the same and I say yes, I should mention I don't have a BC V6, just a smooth V6 but my Objective BC pattern is the same as the KOM, standard fishscale.

Can you please post a Kom rocker profile pic? Base to base?

Thanks for all your input.

Here you go, bud. Sorry about the delay. I'm comparing these 174 KOMs to a 178cm V6. So not totally fair comparison but will give a good round about idea, right? Notice the tails-- there's a big difference in tail construction. Narrower proportionally and also deeper rocker.
