Hi, I'm 5'9 and 170. I've been skiing for about 15 years and always on race skis. I presently ski on a pair on RC4's. This winter I attended a demo day and decided to try some fatter skis and seriously fell in love. It's like a different world skiing on those things..soo easy! I decided I had to get a pair. So basically I am looking for a wider ski (80-88mm) that I could use here on the east coast and for the occasional trip out west or to europe, as I already have a pair of fischer rc4's when i want to really fly.
The demo day I attended did not have all the ski manufacturers some I wanted to try were never available. I tried the lords, enduros, sentinels, 6th sense, nomad ti and crimson. I really found the enduros and lords easy to ski and definitely something I would like. Really surprised how well the lords went on the crud and how well they gripped on ice. However reading all the review on here, i think the kendos are exactly what I am looking for. Good all mountain ski that can also slice and rip. But I am a bit hesitant to just buy some skis online without having tried them before. So if anybody has skied on some enduros, lords and kendos any help or opinions are welcome. How do the kendos compare to the lords, are they as easy to ski, do they have rocker as well?
