Steadfast or kendo
Gear mentioned in this thread:
I have skied both. I really like the i-Core skis from Nordica, they are light lively and really playful compared to their (usually) XBS counterparts. The Steadfast with it's early rise is a very versatile ski with comfort off piste as much as on. The Kendo with it's traditional camber has the advantage on the groomers. IMHO, the Kendo is a better application of the Mantra construction and if you in the east, the choice of the two. If you are west and venture off piste a good amount, the Steadfast, if you stay on the trails more, you will like the Kendo.
I think you would be happier with the Kendo then.
I ski mainly fast with short to medium turns through crud and hard pack. I'm a solid level 8
Question, would you agree a 184 kendo or 186 Steadfast would be my lenght? I'm 6'2 210 before any eqpt. Before this year I skied the ac40 177 and the ac50 177, but I felt I may be better served on the slightly longer ski.
Damn the steadfast ranked highly in Skiing Mag and Ski Mag.
I hate being indecisive!
LOL I"m just as bad with Golf Equipt
