Another dude needs help with skis
Sup my name is Adam, im new here, gotta question as to what skis I should get for the season. Have had my set of 179 salomon x screams for 7 years, time to switch it up. I def want to go twins, Im a big dude, 6'3 260, im looking for a good freestyle ski with all mountain capabilities. I am strongly considering either 179 Line Prophets or 176 Dynastar Big Troubles. Would either of these skis be for me or is there something else that comes to mind? Salomon lords? 1080s? public enemies? thanks for the help
hello adam i am cal. i would suggest a longer ski. in the 180's or even 90's, i think the prophet has a 180 something. also look into volkl bridges, 4frnt msp, K2 seth, bluehouse makes some longer skis i think.
I don't wanna talk to you no more, you empty headed animal food trough wiper! I fart in your general direction! Your mother was a hamster and your father smelt of elderberries!
Gravity is a harsh mistress.
You're a big guy like me. I suggest anything OVER 185. Unless you really like to overpower your skis. Depends on how hard you charge, if at all.
MSP's, Obsethed's, Prophet 100s, Ants, all of those skis are fairly long in the 186-190s range and will be able to help you charge allmountain. I almost went with some of these, and wouldn't mind picking up a pair for backup.
Definately go with something longer than 185
The Sky's The Limit
Im 6'5" 235, and i generally look for something 180-185 length and 90+ underfoot.
That's crazy talk. I've always skied on 190+. This is the first year on a 185, but it's JJs sooooo yeah.
