Nordica Dobermann SL Pro versus Dobermann Spitfire XBI?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

Hi guys, 

 

Does anyone have experience with the Nordica Dobermann SL Pro versus the Dobermann Spitfire XBI? The latter is significantly cheaper, but not sure if they're comparable for moderate/fast slalom turns on hardpack/ice.

Look at this

The Pro is a higher end ski, to be skied faster,quicker and harder, then the Spitfire. The binding din range is higher as well.

Hey Metaphor,

 

I cant speak into the Spitfire, but i just picked up a used pair of the Dobermann SL Pro 2009/2010 model today and I couldn't stop skiing on them tonight (even though I was in my jeans and thin jacket I had on while at the office today!). They are incredible!!!

 

Just a note: if you are a light weight and your skiing style is not disciplined it will not forgive you! But I am a heavier guy and I LOVE THESE!!! Mine came with the N Pro XBi bindings (DIN 3 – 12)

 

Here is an article found that sheds some light to the real life feel.
