Head rock and roll - Page 4

post #91 of 94

So I got to try the Sick Day 95 (179 cm) in a foot of fresh Sierra cement, and I have to say I hated them -- they were absolutely wrong for my skiing style.  I like to have my hips ahead of my feet, but as soon as I did this with the Sick Day it felt like the forebody folded on me, in one case sending me head-over-heels.  There's just not enough ski (flex pattern is way too soft) in front of the bindings to support me.

My Lines are now just for firm snow, Nordica Patrons are now my daily drivers.

Late to the party on the Head RnR's but I finally got a chance to try mine out late this season in close-to-spring-like conditions.  I had a blast on these skis, and spent a good deal of time in bumps that were softening as the day went by.  While I am no bump expert by any means, I skied better on these than I have on just about any other ski, so was impressed there.  Before things got softer, they seemed to hold a nice edge on the groomed trails, and were relatively unperturbed in the crud. 


Candidly, I really don't care what the skis look like if they feel right under my feet!  Had a few different people comment on the lifts that they had heard great things about these skis, but hadn't tried them out ... I wonder how many people fall into that category?  Really looking forward to spending more time on these next season.

Pretty typical with a lot of non-race Head skis.
