well, I did my duty and used the search function beforehand but didnt find what i was looking for...has anyone here used the lizzie's and not liked them? It seems like every one that has tried these ski's has raved about how fun they are, how much they love them etc...All the negative comments seem to be people that have never tried them. For a reference I'm 5'10" 160 pounds, live in new hampshire and ski 50/50 park all mountain. I'm looking for a fat ski that is just a good time all around. These would pretty much be an every day ski for me...input is appreciatted.
this guy put it dead on. by far the most fun ski i have ever been on to carve with. these things absolutely rip. you can lay them over super hard when the snow is nice, but when its tracked out later in the day it gets a little scary.
yeah in fresh pow they are sick, so effortless to turn, especially in the trees, but they really must be turning at all times. once you get into choppy stuff you really have to pay attention. really poppy though. and they don't haul ass either. on any other pair of skis i'm leading the pack of snowboarders that i ride with pretty much all the time, but on my eliz's i'm usually the last. and i'm 6'1" 175 just for reference.
maybe, but they're still really soft. like they're not terrible in choppy snow, unless it's icy chop. few days after a storm is fine, it's just that they aren't a ski to blast through stuff, they go on top instead.
I suggest the karhu PFDs, just tried them out at mammoth. Had elizabeth's earlier in the season. It has same dimension but a little stiffer and more durable sidewall. PFD was crazy poppy even compared to the Mik-D's.
^it all depends on what you ski and your own personal preference. right now i have elizabeths for fresh days at like vail and keystone and places where the terrain isn't too gnarly, msp's (similar to seth's) for park and non-fresh days/weeks, and the ski that'll complete the quiver would be something along the lines of the prophet 100 for charging shit, sooo..... they're all quite different
my sister works at copper and next year I'm livin with her for a month and workin there too. We're gonna drive around to other places but I'll probably do most of my skiing at copper, would the SFBs be fun? I was also lookin at the scratch BCs, but I really love butterin around and stuff so the SFBs sound pretty dope. I'm 6 foot so I figured lizzies would be short
id get any other ski but line. i had elizabeths. they were cool, but they are god awful skis for skiing and jsut about everything else because they are so small. plus they broke and line didnt care. so id explore other options.
quoting smuggs from another thread...
"i rode them when i was at smuggs..... the are killer. now that im in utah... they are amazing. there never has been a better ski invented or there never will be until line makes something fatter or until some company like ninthward just rips off the idea and takes it as their own."
so, i guess your only grip is that your looks ripped out of the ski and line didnt help you out. Understandably your upset, but if i mount these with bindings that have a wider drill pattern they should be fine.
^yeah i bought his elizabeths. they had a huge sidewall blowout right under the binding that i didn't know about til they arrived. no biggie though, the fix on them was fuckin immaculate and i haven't caused them a bit of physical damage.
Am i gonna be too big to ride this ski... (5'10, 160 pounds). I could get sir francis bacons or ninthward rory silvas if so...Anyone my size and ski the elizabeths? How do you feel about the size...a 172 seems pretty short to me.
personally, i can't stand the elizabeth. i think there are many better options out there. the elizabeth is too soft and short for anyone bigger than 140 pounds, in my opinion. sure, they may be fun in fresh pow surfing through the trees, and if you can afford to have a pair of skis that niche specific, go for it. but i think you'll have one bitch of a time skiing those in any other situations. if the silva's are stiffer, get those, or those PFD's someone was talking about in this thread.
well, im 6'2'' and 160lbs and i ski them fine, so i dont think so. i mean sure they feel a tad short, but thats what makes them so fun. they are meant to be super quick and agile, so if thats not what you want then yes, get something longer. if you want to be able to rip turns then get these.
I suggest the PFDs, little stiffer and more durable. Like I said, I skied both of them and like the PFD's better than the eliza's and I also live on the east coast. These bitches curve like hell, pop like hell, and just all around fun ski.
