192 Big dumps?

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 

Has anyone skied these? Not much info at all for reviews on these things. I picked up a pair on a killer deal and am quite curious about what to expect as far as "user friendliness". Obviously they are a charger but i'd like to hear some first hand info on them, along with your height / weight etc. Getting antsy to try these bad boys, they keep starting me down from the corner of the room.

 

Wondering if they are so hyped up for being such a big ski that there's hardly anyone riding them?????

There are some great deals out there that are hard to pass up even w/o demoing them.

Yup...this one was exceptional. I typically do not demo skis. I know enough about what I like to be able to pick and choose based on specs and build, and quite frankly there are sooooo many good skis on the market that there is no way I would have the money to drop on rentals. Yes, some places do apply rental fees towards purchase price, however I do not like to pay retail either so no go. This is purely a quiver ski for me for a very specific application, and i'm also expecting it to be a game changer for me. Still curious to hear other people feed back on them as always.

You can get Eric Rohner to comment on Dynastars. It's my impression that it's a big mountain high speed cruiser and hucker ski,

Yep, that part is pretty obvious, I don't buy skis not knowing what they are meant for but thanks. I'm looking for feedback from people who have actually skied them.

that was the Eric Roner part. he responds to questions about his line of skis, that's the part that might be interesting.

A buddy of mine really loves stiff straight skis, but he likes this for his tree ski. It's a fair bit more forgiving than one might expect. It is HEAVY though.

I have skied this ski extensively and love them. They take getting used to and I have read that you have to stay on top of them at all times.. and this is very true! The second you relax they will put you down. They are the most stable ski make, you can scrub your speed quickly and landing any size air is a pleasure. The best thing about this ski is when I have to straight line a run and end up in sketchy conditions they will get you through!
