carson4444Dose anyone here have mogul skis? I'm looking at the fat-ypus B-nasty. They look really fun to just mess around on and rip moguls. I thought I'd get yalls opinions.

dkelsWhile pure mogul skis definitely aren't necessary to progress in the bumps, picking up a pair will certainly make the learning curve easier - specifically when it comes to practicing good technique. The B-nastys are a great pair of skis and all fat-ypus skis are bomber. They are SUPER light due to their poplar wood core and the race base is nice to have. The 175cm version is on sale now. ID Ones are kind of the gold standard of mogul skis, but for the price you can't beat the b-nastys IMO.
One quick note on bindings - you're pretty much limited to pivots because they are the only binding out there that I'm aware of that offer 75mm brakes. I'm 6'ft 190 lbs and regularly ride STH2 16s on my all-mountain/powder skis, but I picked up some pivot 12s in a 75mm brake for my mogul skis and haven't had any issues with them. If you're just skiing moguls and aren't hitting jumps, I don't think you need anything more than a 12 unless you're going for more durability. Hope these thoughts help on your intro to the bump world!
Chunder_KhatWhat's the deal with sizing on these? Like will the 175 work for a 6'3" 210# dude?
