Kbob94Honestly I'd say if you've got the money go with the new redesignd bacons I got to get my hands on them last week. They're 104mm underfoot now. And they now along with the new Mordecai which replaced the opus both feature Line's new Cloud Core which is a lighter material but definitely stiffer then then your older bacons. Still a killer ski in my opinion. http://lineskis.com/skis/sir-francis-bacon
soupcanI had thoughts about the mordecai for sure but was concerned about how stiff it was. All the line skis I have been on have been super soft. It was limited to 3 or 4 models but it seemed pretty consistent throughout what I had been on. But if they have put some more backbone to them I will throw it into the mix aswell
Kbob94Its definitely stiffer the the opus but it's not super over kill still like a race ski or some like that. Its definitely one to throw in the mix for sure. I'll probably be getting a pair next year or so. But yeah theyd be a great ski as well for what your talking about doing and wanting in a ski.
veng_mI would recommend the new Sir Francis Bacon, Mordecai, the Supernatural series, and the Sick Day series from Line. The Sick Day and Supernatural series aren't full twin tips. The Mordecai is a hundred and fourteen millimeters at the waist and the Sir Francis Bacon is a hundred and four. I hope this helps, good luck!
Sessionyou are real diverse in your suggestions.
veng_mI'm just trying to give OP some suggestions. Those skis seem to be around what he wants.
soupcanSorry to bump an old thread but anyone have thoughts on mixing the annex 118 in there as well. It's certainly more directional then what I am used to but it seems to have some good reviews online. Only problem is the size 184 seems really big and the 177 seems to short to really let loose and charge.
