Looking for a 2 ski quiver - would appreciate advice.

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 

Hey guys, Im looking to downgrade to a 2 ski quiver for travel purposes and would like some advice.

 

Ski 1 - Something around 115mm waist for powder, crud crushing, getting back to the lift in one piece and sidecountry touring with an MFD + FKS bindings. Would like something playful, easy to pivot and damp. Currently rocking 190cm Bibby Pros and to be honest they are awesome. Just looking for opinions on other options that may be a bit damper. Do not like S7's or JJ's, want a bit of camber baby.

 

Ski 2 - Something to rip the frontside with around 80-90mm waist. Will be used for variable conditions when it hasn't snowed in a while. I know that the stiffness/damping associated with carvers isn't what you want in a park ski but hey no harm in asking the lords of epic ski. Im after something damp, dont care about weight and want a cambered twin tip. Something like the Stockli Rotor 84 that isn't $1200. 

 

Both skis will be mounted with FKS 140, I ski in Lange RX130's and am 193cm tall, 90kg. I like to go fast and huck cliffs, enjoy trees and want some burly skis to live through my many crashes.

Ski #1 is easy...DPS Wailer 112 RP, but there are tons of great skis for the #2 position.  I like my Icelantic Pilgrims a bunch since I got tune figured out.  My Sultan 85s are pretty nice as well.

Brace yourself...... I do not love DPS 112rps. Awesome skis no doubt just not really for me. If they came in 195 and were heavier/damper with a larger radii sidecut then id be all over them. Ive actually got a pair of pures for sale at the moment that I bought after trying both the pures and hybrids. I guess I grew out of love with them after my initial infatuation.

 

Much better skis than S7's though - those things make me feel like im on a seesaw. (For those that love S7s, yes I know they suit some people I just watched Ky Peterson drop a 40/40 double on them and hes a much better skier than ill ever be.)

Maybe a Bodacious? Trick would be to figure if it's the 186 or 194 depending where you're skiing, but it sounds like the 194 for you. Ski #2, there's a bunch of great stuff on the market that would fit the bill, so I won't bother telling you that I think you should ski on what I like. smile.gif  What about the Rossi park skis? Sickle, Scimitar? Unfortunately the Rossi E98 isn't really a true twin tip, but it skis like you're describing. Yeah, ok. It's the one I like, so maybe you should ski on it after all.

Maybe look at some of the bigger Icelantics.  I liked my keepers a lot except for the weight which is why I bought the dps.  The keepers absolutely annihilate crud.  The gypsy might even be a better ft.

Thanks for all the replies guys. Im going to try and demo some Icelantic Keepers and see how they compare to the bibbys. Im also going to post a new thread purely based on park skis as ive decided to do the aussie season after this one and ill pretty much spent 80% of my time in the park. Mods if you could close or delete this thread so as to not repeat myself I would appreciate it
