Been riding on a pair of 171 Black Crow Daemons for a couple seasons now: have gotten a significant amount of use out of them, but still in decent shape (several expected topsheet scratches/dings; one base treatment done due to large scratch).
Bought a pair of 184 Moment Wildcats this season to have a more dedicated powder tool for those deep days, but it turns out I love them: have only ridden them since and they are most likely going to become my daily next season.
Since the Wildcat's would be my primary ski, I would only want to bust out my thinner skis (the Daemon's) on low coverage/rock days, icy mornings in the spring, or maybe dedicated groomer days (park perhaps?). The problem there is that the Daemon is pretty god awful at holding an edge on ice/hardpack, and I am not a fan of how it feels on rails and jibs/jumps.
Also, after jumping from a 171 to a 184, I feel that my Daemons are now a bit to short for my liking.
What Do I Do?
Sell/Trade the Daemons for a similar waste width ski that holds an edge on hardpack better and maybe feels better in the park?
I have a few skis in mind and would also like some suggestions if this is this case
Keep the Daemons, work with them more, and use them mostly as rock skis?
Possible: I would just have to be careful with the harder stuff and maybe mess with my technique?
Keep the Daemons, but find a way to get a new/different pair in a larger size?
Could this help?
Keep the Daemons as rock skis, buy a new ski for hardpack/ice/groomers?
Obviously the least cost effective option, but who doesn't like adding to the quiver?
