Think about the prophet 100. The ski rips so hard. For its width/size its pretty light and still can rip groomers no question. Ive skied both the 90 and 100. 90 is solid but 100 makes you feel like you can dominate the mtn. Its powerfull.
1) *4FRNT MSP – 181 cm – mounted at midsole: This is a great one-ski quiver ski. Holds an edge really well. Loves to go fast and do big turns. Only downside is that it isn’t as versatile in turn shape as other skis (Magfire 12 and other mid-fats). This was one of my favorites of the day.
Graphics: Some of the best I’ve ever seen.
Final Thoughts: I really, really like this ski. I could see it replacing my Monster 82s. It kills it all mountain and should be quite good in the park. It is really stable and strong going really fast.
Price: $ high
2) Rossignol Brigade (Scratch BC) – 185 cm – mounted about Modern: One of the most improved skis from last year. They have stiffened it up quite a bit. The ski holds an edge really well and carves the hard pack really well. It also skis switch fantastically. I really like the ski as an out West all mountain do-it-all. The ski feels like a slightly toned down MSP.
Graphics: Nothing special, simple and clean
Final Thoughts: I would rather ski the Brigade than the Bridge. It is a great all-mountain ski. Not sure if it will sell here in MN.
Price: $ high
3) Line Prophet 90 – 179 cm – midsole mount: This ski is an all-mountain ski. It skis similar to the MSP, but not quite on that level. It carves well and holds an edge quite well. Likes bigger turns and fairly high speed.
Graphics: All of the Prophets together look cool, but by themselves = meh.
Final Thoughts: Better than expected all-mountain/powder ski. It comes close to the MSP, but I would still rather be on the MSP.
Price: $ ??
