Ski's/Bindings right for me?
I'm looking to buy a pair of skis, and I really have no idea what skis would be good for me.
I'm 5'8", weigh 130 pounds, recently been skiing 40-50% park/pipe, 30% blues, 30% blacks/powder/double blacks.
I'm a good all mountain skier, a so called "type III". But, I'm not good at freestyle really (yet)- I can do 3's with different grabs/iron crosses, but would like to get better.
So, if anyone could reccommend some freestyle skis/bindings for me that would be great, thanks.
P.S. would probably be 170's and i have a budget, $600 is pretty much pushin it to the limit, if possible at all...
trouble makers are a great all mountain ski, and for u id say go with the 175's, they r kinda on the soft side.
the foils would be another great choice for u, relaly great all mountain ski
Snatch a deal on old (but new)P-E's. I mounted them with Rossignol Scratch 120 bindings. The skis were 300 plus the 150 for the bindings, 450$ for a killer set.
yeah your best bet is pry gonna be last years PE's or Scratches, most sports shops have those, throw on some look px 12's or Salomon S912's or something along those lines.
Should be pretty far below $600
For $600 you can buy a brand new pair of Mojo 90s w/ Mojo 15 bindings that are SIGNED by Jon Olsson!!!! (this setup costs $750 at my local shop and on ebay you can't get it for cheaper than $600 anyway... and these are signed by Jon himself). Won these skis in a contest, and they've never been skied before. Mojo 90s are probably the most bomb proof best all around skis ever. 176 is a good length for you since they're long enough and stiff enough of a ski to be good everywhere on the mtn. Going with a longer skis at least helped me become better and more aggressive...
