Great Powder Sticks for Lightweight Skiers

Great Do-It-All Boards

Posted

Pros: Everything!

Cons: Soft Deck Material So Tip Edges Mar

About me: 6'2", 195lbs(220lbs w/gear pack) X-GS Racer with aging knees. Lange Fluid 90 boots and   Jester Schizos on obSETHed 2010 189s. First day I started at +3 with blower on top, hardpack to 4" on top of hardpack and 6-10" POW in stashes, and these skied great. +3 makes these just a tad turnier than I prefer, but it demonstrated how well these would work in tight chutes. If I were chuting all day I would go with +3. Next day I set the Schizos to +2.5 and found my G spot. This was pretty much a spring corn day with temps to 54*, but shady stashes were mine as well. Just an awesome ski in every respect. These skis swing easy, switch easy...

Pros: AGGRESSIVE

Cons: Cant stick uphill ice (easily)

ObSETHed's? YES!   First run HUGE SMILE.. that feeling never left. Super aggressive, super float, they are not happy unless you are making fast, HUGE McConkey (RIP) turns.  They power through tress so you better me alert. They carve just fine on soft snow, mash potatoes, frozen crud, anything except steep ice. Only thing bad is, they increase your tomahawks by a factor of two since you want to ski them that fast. I dont like the graphics, but its not my pro model so who am I to say anything.
