can somone help me decided on the Firearrow from nordica?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

So i was all set on getting the new firearrow 80 pro. It has gotten good reviews in Ski an Skiing magazines. Then i went to me local ski shop and they have the Firearrow 74 EDT and not the Pro. I haven't seen any review on the EDT. I mean i like the looks of the EDT far better then the Pro, but how does it ski? Does anyone know how it will stack up against the Pro for Stabilty and Hard Snow Grip and in the bumps?

 

Thanks

The FA 74 EDT has better grip and stability and would be more nimble feeling in bumps. OTH the EDT is stiffer in both directions so despite being more nimble in bumps, it might be a touch less forgiving than the 80 which is somewhat softer. The 74 is definitely a step above the 80 on most counts but also might be a ski for a bit better skier.

I just thought i would bump this post instead of starting a new one..   

 

I am a patroler here in the south east  in a region known for hard snow   and i work at a resort that is known for its hard snow and not the best grooming lol    I was trying to pick between the Firearrow 80 pro and the 80 Ti    is there any difference between then besides the 1 sheet of Ti ?   I am what i call a lower level expert  ski aggressively and am 6ft and an athletic 205 lb

 

Thanks

The reviews I've found say that the extra metal is the only difference, but they're conflicted about the effects.  Some say the Pro is much better, much steadier.  Others say that the Ti is just as steady and stiff, and they didn't notice a difference, or that the Ti was steadier and better.  Most of the reviews praising the Pro came from magazines (possible advertising pressure to steer people toward the more expensive ski?), while most of the reviews saying they're just as good, or they preferred the Ti, came from forum posters.
