Faction Prodigy 3.0 vs. Nordica Enforcer Free 104
I'm looking to get a new ski for next season and have narrowed it down to these two. I have a good powder ski so I won't be using either on pow days, these are more for variable conditions to just have some fun. I may mount a touring binding and use them in Spring.
Does anyone have experience with both and how they compare?
Both very fun skis that are nice and damp while still being pretty playful.
Overall, the Enforcer 104 feels a bit more directional. It rewards a more forward, driving stance (though you can ski it centered if you bump the bindings to -6 cm from true center). While the Prodigy 3 holds an edge just fine on most conditions, the Enforcer 104 is the better carver overall — quicker turn initiation & better edge hold.
The Prodigy 3 is more playful overall in my opinion. It's looser / surfier and while it's a very strong ski, its deep rocker lines make it easier to butter and bend in my experience. The Prodigy's swing weight is also lower and I think it just feels more natural and balanced in the air (even when I have both skis mounted around -6 or -5 cm from true center).
Have not ridden the prodigy but I love.my enforcer free's. I like them because they really ski and feel like a directional ski with a twin tip. Super hard charging, crud busting, and when I want to I can go switch.
