SharkoYou will have a lot of fun on both. Sick Day is more directional (lower tail and mount point is further back) so if you are doing a lot of switch skiing you'll want the Mordecai.
Line_Skis^ what he said. If you're not looking to go backward at all and want a more traditional slarvy feel go with the Sick Day .. but if you're into all terrain freestyle and a fun poppy ski go with the Mordecai .. thanks! -jm
SharkoHey Line Skis dudes, I'm going to threadjack for a minute here.
Been skiing the 108 waist Bacons in 184cm for years now, but my style has changed as I've gotten older and I moved to the West Coast. I don't hit the park now, I rarely ski switch now, and I seek out pow, trees, and ungroomed terrain a lot more. Lately I feel like I'm dragging the big tail of the Bacons around and getting it hooked up in crud, also I feel like I'm overpowering the tips sometimes in soft snow (like I have to concentrate to keep my stance centered and not drive them too hard). Bacons are still rad, but I feel like I'm fighting them instead of working together.
My home mountain is Mammoth now and here's what I want to do:
I want to cruise down the open bowls from the peak to the tree line, then tight trees through the middle of the mountain, then straightline the last piece of groomer back to the lift.
Am I am Supernatural or a Sick Day???
If it helps I'm 5'10, 170#
