I have been skiing on some really beat up candides for the past 3 seasons. I would say about 60% steeps/rough stuff/pow, 20% hard pack, 20% park. I really want to have some new skis so when the candides just snap in half I will be ready.
I got sick of constant base welds/ptex last year, and just gave up on fixing the core shots, so my core is inevitably starting to rot.
I am looking at getting some new MSPs this year, but I am not sure if they are the right ski, given I have never ridden them, but $435 sounds like a pretty good deal.
I also need to get bindings, but if worse comes to worse, I can take bindings off my old skis. Is there anything that might come as a surprise to me going from a 180 candide to a 180 MSP that I might hate?
Sorry to bore everyone, but $400+ is a lot of money (My candides were $140 w/ bindings)
