Fitz_Also want to add I'm 18, slender/muscular build, price isn't really an issue as long as it's below like $800 but the cheaper the better, also I haven't really thought about bindings yet but if anyone has any suggestions I would appreciate it,
Swandog7Unless you want to tour which doesn't sound like it, FKS/Pivots (same bindings just rebranded) are imo the best binding on the market. For a slightly cheaper and lighter option id check out the Attack 13s.
JonnyKThere is 181 and 191 Jeffery 114s on sale now. I love mine for all mountain and pow skiing. They're super playful but also charge hard.
Fitz_What max din what you suggest ? Like pivot 12-14-16?
BushDid9-11Inb4 get full tilts
Fitz_Would you recommend 191 for me ?
No.QuarterGet Jeffrey 114's because they are the best skis ever made and have magic panda saliva in the bamboo or something so they ski everything with the focus and zen of 1000 pandas.
For real though they are awesome skis. They are very playful, but also damp so they can still charge and make it awesome to ski steeps super playfully. I have heard great things about the Kartel 106's too, they are a little more playful than the Jeffs and with a little less float and charge-ability
weedooKartels from what I hear are great, both widths. Really nice Graphic too.
patagonialukeIf you're looking at a 2 ski quiver and need an all mountain/pow setup to complete it I'd look at something over 105mm to pair with the Filthy Rich. Jeffrey 114's are pretty rad, same with Kartel 108 if you wanna stick with ON3P. Lots of other options in that category too: Armada ARV 108 for next year look sweet, Line SFB, Moment Deathwish, RMU apostle, 4FRNT Kye 110 (stiffer).
