Chronic Blend or Prophet 90?
I'm not sure, has anyone used either of them? The Chronic blend are cheaper but I've heard good things about prophets. I ride both park and steep/powder but I weight more towards steeps. I just wanna know which would be better.
ignor these four words
The big difference between the two is that the prophet has a metal strip in it, making it stiff. If you want a stiffer ski, get the prophet. The Blend will be a good overall ski, park, all mtn, etc. The prophet may be too stiff for park but will destroy everything else.
Money's clean cause we scrub it good. With guns and gasoline we're gonna save the world. Nothing's obscene if we only close our eyes, boys and girls, welcome to this Joyride. -dmb
I'd say go blend. Its overall more versatile because if i am correct the Prophet only has a directional twin tip
You are not correct. They are EXACTLY the same geometry (so is the celebrity by the way, they just all have different stuff on the inside). The Prophet 80 is the only one that has a higher tip than tail.
I have been using Blends this season and I was really surprised by their performance carving and in the steeps. They really are rock solid at high speed. I say if you want to do any park skiing on them, get the Blends and they won't hold you back anywhere. I am 5'10, 160lbs if that helps. Plus, the graphics are sweet, they look brown in all the pictures, but if you see them in real life they are mettalic gold.
...people on the lift can't stop staring at them.
