I have the Declivity 92ti already for my daily groomer ski. Not really sure another narrow ski would be what I would add at this point, outside of a full race ski. Honestly I was hoping to get opinions on the BC100, QST98, and Origin 101 from anyone who may have had a chance to try them at any point - added the M-Free 99. I've been on mindbenders and reckoners, and dislike the feeling of tail. I didn't try to really pin it down to a flex/release out of turn/material analysis because I just took them back to the shop after a couple runs. Both were setup with Warden 13s. I tried the Origin last year, and it felt a bit soft to me, but with the new materials I was hoping to try it out.
The issue I have is that multiple local shops won't be demoing many skis this year (supply/demand) so all 3 of these I've been told won't be available for a demo. I'm in a weird spot as I want something more playful, without going to a full freestyle ski. I dislike skis that lack good edge hold, as we have a lot of ice in the AM that doesn't really go away until after lunch - although I guess I can switch up skis in the afternoon as I have multiple pairs.
mystery3Gotta keep them AFDs tight. Especially on hardback.
OP, check out the Mirus Cor from Black Crows. I know it's slightly narrower than the skis you listed but it should be fine for most conditions on the east coast.
People might have a difficult time understanding what you're looking for as you don't like two of the most universally well regarded skis in the segment, the Reckoner 102 and Revolt 104. What other skis have you used and what have you liked or disliked about them.
