Anthems vs Elizabeths
So ive owned two pairs of lizzies, greatest ski ever. Got 140 day on one pair, and have 200+ on my 08-09 pair. The biggest thing i notice is they've just plain old lost a lot of the pop and basically don't have camber anymore. I remember when i got my current pair, i thought holy shit, these things are so poppy. Its faded....that and they are pretty beat.
I also moved from the west about a year ago to icy MN, and i only get about 30-40 days a year now. Last winter i came to the conclusion that maybe a slightly narrower ski would be a little better? wide skis make ice that much worse, and there really isn't as much all mtn jibbing around to do.
I've found anthems and lizzies online, and im about to purchase one or the other. My question is, are the anthems anywhere near as fun as the lizzies????
I have a hard time believing they are, but i want to get the opinion of some people who have skied both. I'm having a hard time switching to anything besides lizzies, they've been my ski the last 3 years and they are fucking awesome. Basically if im not going to have as much "fun" (and you lizzie owners know what im talking about) on anthems as the lizzies, then ill get another pair o lizzies.
I'd go with the Lizzies. Anthems are fun, but not as fun, and they lose their pop in the same way lizzies do, so either way, you'd have a ski that lost it's pop, but you wouldn't have the fun of the lizzie.
