I put a set of those 8 inchers from Royal on my 86 Skandic last week. Night and day in the deep snow. Come to a complete stop in 3 feet of fresh powder and sink 2 inches where I used to sink 6 or 8. Best sled I've ever owned for deep snow. Ride bottomless flatland like it was packed snow.
Took some pics of the Skandic last night. Just installed Pro-taper bars & 6 inch pivoting riser (2 inch overall rise from stock height). The thing is so much more nimble with those bars and got me carving sharp and deep. Ski skins are also on in pic. Oh, and btw, the skins added 3-4 mph to my top speed as well. Runs 62ish now on the dream meter. 447 twin carb coming very soon!
