Bluehouse Maestro Question

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 

   I'm thinking of purchasing Bluehouse Maestro skis, size 178.  Since I weight only 148 lbs, (5'-9"), I'm wondering how they handle for lighter men.  I currently ski an Armada ARV, size 175, which I like a lot and isn't too stiff for my weight. 

   The Maestro's flex is rated at 7 while the ARV is between 5 and 7, depending on which part of the ski.  Please don't answer unless you've skied the Maestro and are a light weight person.  How did you like it compared to other similar skis?

I realize that would limit the number of responses but I've read plenty of reviews on the Maestro but none list the reveiwers weight.  It makes a difference on how the ski handles.  If I could demo it I would.

I now have the Maestro but there isn't enough powder to use it yet.  When there is I'll review it.

Another bump. I'm 5'9", 145 lbs. and also considering the Maestros (as soon as they're not sold out). Anyone have experience on them as a lighter skier?

   Finally, after having these skis for over a year there was enough powder in Colorado for me to ski my Bluehouse Maestros.  Yesterday Vail had 8"-10" of fresh powder with plenty of untracked terrain.  We skied bowls, bumps and lots of trees... so here is my review:

 

   WOW!  Great ski!  I thought it would feel heavy since it was 118mm at the waist but it skied and moved light and quick... perfect for the trees and fun in powder.  It wasn't bad in the bumps.  What surprised me was how well it did on the hardpack, not exactly a carving ski but very stable, maybe not great at high speed but perfect for me since I avoid hardpack. Plus I have another ski, Head Rock n Roll, for that type condition.  Smearing worked well and felt natural to do.  Really enjoyed the Maestro!!!
