2010/2011 Blizzard Magnum 8.1 Max CA

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

I have an offer in on a pair of these in great condition but while researching I don't find much info except on some Czech web site. I am guessing they are carbon and glass ( without metal ). I am also assuming these ride similar to other 8.1s of the same year. Anyone have experience with these ??

The 2010/2011 8.1 CA was a European (and maybe Canadian) offering. Blizzard did not bring it into the states.

That was my thinking . . .

I have magnum 8.1ti and my buddy has the same length 165cm in the CA.
The ca is softer and more forgiving but loses that pop from the tails at the end of the turn. The difference is significant. I prefer the Ti. He prefers the CA as he uses them much more all mountain and I use them mainly as an on piste carver. The Ti is much more thrilling as a carver but is less enjoyable off piste in rough conditions.

Thanks. The CA would likely do me fine. These are 172cm and probably used less that 10 times (maybe even 5). I have been using 177 Kendo's and Mantra's this season and looking for a better carver ( but still somewhat light). Would you know if the CA is noticeable weight difference ?
