1080 foils or Seth Pistols
I'm skiing the scratch fs and im looking for a ski thats better for all mountain and pow. Im 5 10 and 150lb so id be lookin at about a 179. I ski about 75% BC/pow and 25% park.
pistols. Quite a bit fatter so better in pow but also good in park.
I think you are going to have an overwhelmingly unanimous response on this one. These two skis aren't even in the same ballpark.
hmm.. well since your 150 pounds im gunna go with the pistols.. the foil is an AMAZING all around ski and is great everywhere IF your a lighter rider... your in about the range where i stop reccomending salomon's to people.. salomon is great for smaller guys who want something light and soft.. but if you get a bit bigger you will over power them so im gunna say go with the pistol....
you help out way too much, remember your on newschoolers
150 pounds isn't that much
i bought foils, but for your percentages I would recommend the pistols, they'll be way better in pow and bc. I'm interested to see how my foils handle pow, i have the 182's, so they're descently wide, but I think the sidecut is going to make them hook like mad. Fortunately they won't be seeing anything past 6 inches
yea like some one said before me the foils and pistols arent even in the same category, but if your doing 3/4 in the bc then deff go for the pistols cause thats what it was made for, you also might want to check out the rossi bc, bc a little softer might be a little better for you since your a little lighter, but it all depends on how hard you rip. hope that was some help for you
ya seth pistols fur shur and everyone else will say the same
I am of course going to respond pistols as well, because they're just my kind of ski, and happen to be fucking awesome on everything but ice... but the foils this year are a big step up in the salomon quality department, and this is coming from someone who was pretty skeptical last spring. They really are a quality ski.
Foils vs PE
Guns vs Pistols
Those are better comparasons.
