Help!! Fischer Atua or Dynastar Big Trouble
I have been extensively researching both these skis all season, and I still can't decide between the two!!!
I am 5'11" 180lbs, aggresive skier, ski everything from park, groomers, big open bowls, trees, steep narrow icy mogul runs like "Devils Crotch", zipper bump lines, you name it. Pow Pow is my fav (big surprise), and is what I try to ski the most. I am currently skiing the Fischer Addict Pro as my park ski, and I love it, now I need a ski for everything else. My concern is the Atua will be to soft for high speeds down steep bowls filled with crud. And my concern with the Big trouble is that it won't float as well as the Atua (narrower ski and stiffer tip then tail), and won't be quite as responsive on groomers. I will be skiing alot of groomers when skiing with my wife and daughter. My last all mtn ski was the Line Pollard Pro 186, and it was a great ski, just looking for something with a little more float.
Help me please,
I have been reading all the threads I can find on the web (here, Teton Gravity, barking bear, tele sites) I have also talked to a couple of different shop techs with mixed results. Unforunately I will not be able to demo these skis.
Atua my friend has em and there sick he rides em in pow and on groomed trails and there so smooth
Yeah thats what I have been leaning towards. Still can't decide for sure.
Looking for someone who has ridden them both.
About 1-2 hour left to decide before ups gets here with my sac Big Troubles. If I decide I want the atuas I am going to just refuse the package. I can get the atuas for 400.00 shipped. When I saw the big troubles on SAC I didn't think about it I just got them before they sold out. 293.00 was a great deal. Evogear has them for 350.00 shipped, which would make it hard to resell the sac BT's.
man stick with the BT. its pretty stiff, so it wnt chatter at all, and it pretty much kicks ass, i rode it, its super lively, makes quick turns, but wide sweeping ones if you want to, i had a lot of fun on it. i hope u got 186 at your height though
the big trouble is designed as a backcountry jumping ski. gigantic tip and tail for switch landings.
love my big toubles...i would get them in thw 186 tho and mount them a little in front of the recommended cuz they are a tad too far if mounted there
All times are Eastern (-5)
