CS2-6As per the advice from my All Mountain Skis that are Great in Moguls threads, I'm looking for a mid-waist ski (78-92mm) with a mild tip (or tip and tail) rocker and a long (>19m) turning radius. Most importantly though, I need it to have a soft to moderate flex in the shovel (somewhere in-between the Volkl Kinks and Atomic Punx Sevens).
Does anyone have any direct experience with the Transfer 85s from 2018? It's gotten some pretty poor reviews, but I've been deal hunting and have found a new set for
I picked up a pair super cheap last year because I wanted to give them a go, I originally got them as a ski to use while I was coaching because my kids destroy my skis by stepping all over them. I was pleasantly surprised how much I like them, super playful and a big + is how light they are, I put some pivot 14's on and they had a consistent flex. the 2 big issues I have with them is like many others say durability, I took a couple scary chunks out of the top sheet but nothing that was actually as bad as people were saying. My biggest issue is the base material, it does not hold wax well at all and its super slow, I know its not race-base but it was particularly bad. if you have any other questions let me know!
