Hi all, looking for a little advice on skis, specifically the Line Prophets and Volkl Mantra.
I currently ski about 20-30 ski days a season..not as much as I'd like but family, commitments, etc, etc only allow me to get away that much these days.
I currently ski a K2 Obsethed (2008 I think) in 179 and have found it great in the soft stuff, recently events (ahem) however mean I am now looking fro a new pair of skis to use as a one ski quiver.
As much as I liked the Seths in the soft stuff I would like something with a little more bite in icier conditions, I can't always ski when it's a powder day so ideally want a compromise between float and edge hold in harder snow/ice. I also like to ski bumps at times, though I had no problems with my K2 Obsethed in this respect.
Specifially I have been looking at the Line Prophet 100 and Volkl Mantra and any input would be very much appreciated.
I am 5' 11'', about 170 pounds and am a strong skier, mostly skiing Verbier, Chamonix, St Anton with occassional trips to Whistler now and again.
