What's up? I would appreciate some help figuring out my ski situation for this year. Trying to figure out if I should add a ski, sell a ski, or do nothing. Here's some background info about me
Height: 6' 2"
Location: East Coast (Loon, Sunday River, Killington, etc. I will be all over New England with the ikon pass). Maybe if I'm lucky I'll get a few days out west
Skier type/style: Advanced, like to ski fast and make big carves, find myself spending less and less time in the park and more and more time looking for natural features and side hits I can boost off of. I don't spend much time skiing switch but I do appreciate being able to land switch
176 Armada AR6 - full camber, 86 underfoot, fairly stiff for a park ski. This is my ski on 98% of days. I love everything about this ski, would only ask for a little more edge hold on ice (rails don't help) and would probably prefer a 181
188 Fischer Ranger 108 TI - I rarely pull this ski out. On the east coast I have never skied it in conditions that actually called for a 108 underfoot ski. I have skied it at Alta / Snowbird and really enjoyed it bombing soft groomers and blasting through crud. In a foot of fresh or in trees/moguls it felt a little hard to pivot. After getting it up to speed in pow it felt great making big turns. There has never been a day on the east coast that I regretted choosing the AR6 over the Ranger. There have been days where I felt limited by the lack of a twin tip and unnecessary width on the Ranger
Here are my questions:
1) Is there room in my quiver for a 100mm underfoot ski? Skis I'm considering include the 17/18 Wrenegade 98, 18/19 Kartel 96, and Moment PBJ.
2) Which of these skis will perform best on east coast ice? I love the idea of the K96 but the rocker profile worries me on the east
3) Would the Wren overlap too much with my Ranger? Should I sell the Ranger 108 and downsize my charger to a 98 underfoot? If anyone has experience on both, how do they compare?
4) Would the Kartel 96 or PBJ overlap too much with my AR6? Would there ever be a reason to pull out one over the other?
Really appreciate any input anyone has! Thanks guys
