Choosing a New Iron

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 

I dropped my Swix iron and while it still functions I don't believe its long for this world.  Are the expensive irons really worth the money for a recreational skier?

Nope. I have a maplus $30 iron and it works great.

No, the expensive ones may have some nice features (digital, etc.) but when people call me I suggest that they get my cheapest iron; it's just as good as the $100+ irons.

The digital Wintersteiger iron seems like a good compromise between price and features.

FWIW, I use one of the typical basic ski irons that goes for 30-40 dollars. Works fine, so long as you're a little vigilant about the temperature.

 

That digital Wintersteiger isn't massively more expensive, though.

In my opnion unless your on the world cup race circuit or in  college an iron is an iron. Buy a cheap one.
