  12. AT Setup - Havoc vs. Pocket Rocket

    I did a lot of research and demo of AT gear last year, and what I purchased totally rocks! Atomic TM:EX, dynafit comfort binding, Garmont Mega Ride Boot. Totally light, lighter thatn my lightweight tele gear, fat, fast, awesome for climbing, sweet in pow and crud. I took these out for a test at the resort and it was like Alpine-lite. Skied all the normal drops, chutes, trees, pow, and even bumps. Great in the bc, light and durable. The skinning is superior to my tele, and the boots have a walking mode that is great. I also tried K2 Shuksan, Rossi T3, and researched others. This was the standout. Snappy and a great shape. kd
