OOOOONLY joking on the pictures but hopefully the thread will get more hits:
Looking for a pair of skis for present for my girlfriend.
Stats: Height 5'8. Weight 130lbs. Athletic (like professional dancer) Intermediate skier, looking for her first pair of twin tips
She skis: 60% all mountain : 40% park (just started, in indoor ski halls in UK)
Ability: cruises all pistes with good technique, can slide a box sideways, learning 180 on bunny jumps, some (tearful) off piste experience with me, can ski some steeps when pushed but she doesnt charge off piste.
Only pair of twins shes skiied are some of my clubs 151 09/10 mai tais which she loved but were redic short for her.
What I'm considering:
159/169 10/11 missdemeanour + squire £314 = $480
159 09/10 miss conduct with nxt 11 bindings £201 = $310
161 mai tai with nx11s = £312 = $480
157/171 liberty jinxes (would LOVE 164 but you just cant get them in UK unless you buy from liberty dealer and the're like £380 flat ski = $580, can get 171 for about £180 = $280
164 06/07 missdemeanour with nx11 for £182 = $280
I'm mega busy with work so all shopping will have to be done on internet. Price is important as am skint at the moment and she will also be getting skiing holiday for her (my) christmas...
so +K++ for help and advice on length, experience on skis especially the new missdemeanours... etc and any other choices I could consider?durability etc. Cheers in advance!!
