Steadfast or kendo

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
Ok I'm looking for someone who has skied the steadfast to give me their honest opinion in comparison to the kendo. I pretty damn intrigued with what I've heard about the steadfast. Any help would be appreciated.

I am suuuuure that a couple bears I know have skied both of these skis and hope that you'll get your answers if I bump this thread. biggrin.gif

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.

Hmmm thanks for the info. I am a east skier that skis a bunch of crud/hard pack. I'm very agressive and just came fr a ac50. It was a good ski bit I wanted more play on the tights and bumps. With that said you feel the kendo is the way to go huh?

I think you would be happier with the Kendo then.

I'm having buyers remorse then I was going to return the kendo 184 for a steadfast I ordered at 186. So apples to apples what did you feel the main differences were? Thanks for your input.


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
