Which one??????? Im 5'11" 130lbs and still growing. Need an all around epic ski. Need a "one ski quiver" for next year and figured that now is the best time to buy.

I have. But i havent skied any of them and thought that maybe someone out there had. I have searched for hours upon hours and these are the skis i have narrowed them down to. Dont assume shit, i searched the hell out of these skis.

I have been skiing my 183 TST's more and more as the season has progressed.  I haven't written a review on them yet, but on the lift today I was thinking I would call the review "Quiver Killer".  They are good enough where I am thinking of selling 2 pairs of skis in my quiver of 4eek.gif  That would just leave me with the TST's and Lhasa Pows for really deep days.  On the TST's, I can rail groomers, have a blast in bumps, rail the off piste steeps and ya, they float my 200lbs great in the pow.  Really a very easy ski to turn with great edge hold when needed.  The more I ski them, the more I like them.biggrin.gif

Just buy the 183 as they ski very short.

If that's the case, what did you learn from your searching?  What specific questions do you have about any of the skis?  What kinds of things did you find out that makes you think these might be a good fit for you?  What kinds of reservations do you have about any of the models that makes you think they might not work?  What else can you tell us about yourself, where you like to ski (types of terrain), where you ski (geographically), skis you've skied that you have/haven't liked?

 

Just coming in and saying "Which one???????" doesn't make it easy for anyone to give you very meaningful advice.

I trust you have searched, but you still have a heck of a lot of skis in you 'narrowed' down list. It's not quite easy for us to tell you which ski to get out of that many. Jaobrien6 sums it up pretty good, give us some more information about what you've found of the different skis, and what you think you might dislike/like about each one.

I am having the same experience with my 165 TSTw (as you may have noticed from my recent review that I saw you comment on). I thought these would just be more soft snow days, but I find myself liking them more and more for other conditions too the more I take them out...

It's really hard to give you some advice unless you tell us a little more about you and what you're looking for. What kind of terrain are you going to be skiing most? Where do you want the most performance, where can you sacrifice some? Etc. Just tell us a little more and we could make a better suggestion based on that.
