Just bought Sultan 85's in a 178 for the daily driver. Want to compliment them with a wider All Mountain, a few days after storm, powder ski. I dont ski more then a few true powder days a year so a dedicated powder ski is not that important.
The Sultan 85's in a 178 should be a fun daily tool. Just hope they are not too soft given the flex is very soft compared the the MR's. Given SJ likes them and many other positive reviews I could not resist getting a pair.
53 yrs old
6'1 190 lbs
Ski 40+ days a season
Passes - Squaw, Heavenly, Alpine, Sugar Bowl, Kirkwood.
Steeps, trees, chutes...
Old skool style. Hands out front, driving the tips, more power then finesse.
Skis I Liked:
MR's 178 - Best ski I ever owned
8800's 178 - Really liked these
Public Enemy's 179 - very fun but too soft. Sold them after two days if skiing them
Mex 174 - lots o' fun
Gots 183 White - 2007's? - Liked them just ok. Far from a favorite ski.
As for a 2nd ski I am considering:
2010 Blizzard Atlas 180. Too similar, too much overlap with the Sultans?
2010 Dynastar Sultan 94, Perhaps in a 184? Longer length then the 85's (178). Too similar also?
2010 Blizzard Titan Argos 105 mm waist in a 180. Can not find more a then a couple reviews on this ski.Comments appreciated.
Thoughts and suggestions appreciated.
Please note I am a budget skier so models 1 or 2 years old are preferred.
