I have been in Iraq for about 2 years, so just getting back into the scene. I wanna buy twin tips, and looked at the foils but concerned about durability?!? I also like the look of the chronics. I mostly ski in michigan (ice). 40% park 60% trails. So any help would be cool. I am 5'8, 140 and done growing. I also prefer short sticks. I am glad to finnaly be back, thanks for all your help. I also found a pair of chronic golds (167)for sale, whatcha think?
The golds are just limited edition color. They do have Chronics WIDES too if you wanna ski thats obviously wider with the same construction as the regular chronics. I think the underfoot may be a little bigger on the PE's too and the overall ski is stiffer, so if your a big guy they will work better cause you wont wash out as much, but your 140 so you need something with a little bend to it.
^^^ i rode the line binding last season. i broke off 4 nose pieces and 2 heels. i wasnt even skiing them hard. just regular flipps and spins. they was mounted by a line specialest and he wasnt sure what was rong with them. they also make you ski kinda wierd. but still super sick but i had some durabuility problems. so check out 06 line bindings if anything.
Get look or rossignol bindings. Safest, easiest binding to use. They don't need to be adjusted like salomons and have no prerelease problems.
Line bindings, from what I've seen with my own eyes, break extremely easy. They are very heavy as well, like 2 pounds more than Look/rossignols. If they work for certain people that is great, but if I was skiing anywhere I need to keep my skis on my feet I would be scaried for my life.
Boots are easy - go to a shop and figure out which ones fit your feet. If they fit I recommend Kryptons (or flexons if you can find them). 1080's are also great boots. But how they fit is the most important part.
