Complimentary Ski

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 

Hi Guys,

 

I am looking for a bit of advice regarding a complimentary ski.  I currently have a pair of S7's and Line Prophet 90's!  I am looking to replace the 90's as they are almost 4 years old and have seen better days.  This year I am heading to La Grave for 1 month, hence all the skiing I will be doing will be off piste.  I was looking at getting some Kastle Mx88's but having a chat with with some people they are concerned that the copped up snow and off piste conditions the will make the Mx88's not the ideal choice.  I am 6"00 183 pounds, 22 years old and am a very strong skier.  Thanks for the help.

 

Nick

La Grave, something 95-105, maybe 110 if it's a ski you're really comfortable with.  If I were doing the trip, I'd think the Head Inferno, Blizzard Bonafide or Cochise, Maybe the Line 98 or 105's, Dynastar ProRider 105, Kastle FX94 maybe? There are a lot of nice skis that would be right for the job. I'm sure others will pipe in with other suggestions. Have a great month!

That's what that opening on the toe of the Kaestle ski is about, it talks, making compliments when the skier makes good turns: hey, they was a good one, good edge angle...  the thing is it's hard to tell if it's a sincere compliment or just flattery. non-export models speak German.

 

I think the MX 88 would be perfect. As would the Dynastar Legend Pro. Models a couple years back are 97mm  and 100mm which I prefer to 105mm.

There is no point in going bigger than 100mm when you already have s7's. Which is a pretty versatile ski already. In fact it's my every day ski now. If you want a crud buster, choppy snow, off piste ski get something somewhat stiffer and damp in the 90 range.

Hmmm, maybe something like a Kastle MX-88......
