I'm having a hard time debating what ski would be best for me..
Stats: 190cm/6'2 and 75kg/165lbs, expert skier, agressive, like to go fast in pow, love trees and pillows, thight spaces and some big mountain lines..just go switch sometimes, on landings..
Ski's I am thinking about/my ideas about it/ concerns;
Bibby 186 ; to soft for some big mountain lines? how good in different conditions
Bibby 190 ; too long for tight spots/trees/pillow lines?
Night train 186 ; versatile enough? I like the stiffer design..but how is the edge grip?
Surface Live Life 191 ; Trees?
One Life 189 ; Bigger lines? Tail?
4FRNT EHP 186 ; I like the design/low profile of the tip (all rockered ski's should have that!) whats the flex like?
CRJ 188 ; Bigger lines? Too soft for different conditions?
What want/like: I am looking for the right tool for me.. I ski pow when I can, but I live in Europe so it would be nice to be good in different conditions, not only fresh pow.. One of my questions is how good/ok/bad is tail rocker when you land cliffs,pillow drops and how is it in big mountain lines?
I am looking for a ski that can do some big mountain lines but also is quick and nimble in trees and pillow lines..
Please give me some solid input and things I should think about.. Dont just post what kind of pow ski you have, but tell me what you like about them and also what not/could be better..
Ski's I dont like: S7; big tip on top of the rocker, cant blast trought crud, Czar; heavy and short, EP Pro, SOFT! anything thinner that 110mm..
Help me out NS! Thanks!
