Been lurking here for a few weeks looking at past posts on equipment.
I'm ready to get all new gear this year and I think I've narrowed my choice down to the Line Prophet 90s.
I'm 5'11", 190lbs, mid 40s, advanced intermediate-expert and presently ski the Atomic e5s 170s. Ski almost exclusively east coast ~12 days/year. I'd say about 40% groomers rail, 40% bumps and 20% off-piste... The Prophet 90s seem like the best ski for the type of skiing I'm interested in.
That said... I'm kind of torn between 172s and 179s. I understand these ski shorter and the 179s would ride better on hardpack/ice but I'm finding that the older I get, the more time I spend off-piste/bumps (slower, more technical, less runs/day...) so the 172 are under consideration.
Additionally, these would be my first twin tips. Where should I mount the bindings? Traditional all mountain or center? Or should I get adjustable plates?
