Obsethed vs Pro Rider 115

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 

I can get the 10/11 Obsethed and the 11/12 Pro Rider 115 for same price here. Any thoughts from the gurus?

Depends what you're looking for...

I don't actually need either one, but if either were stellar in a particular area or areas I might be tempted.

The Pro Rider 115 isn't really good anywhere unless you on plan to go mach 5 and make SG and downhill turns no matter the conditions. Very stiff, damp, no life, however very stable.

 

Obsethed on the other hand is a playful ski that can charge fairly well. It will work best in fresh snow and crud, but can handle groomers. Will work well in trees if they is soft snow and good for hucking cliffs and drops.

Wow, hard to come up with two more different skis.

 

The LP 115 is for bombing. end of story. Stiff, BIG turn radius, just bomber. I have a pair in SLC, and when there's freshies in Mineral Basin and you want to go Mach 12, it's my pick (otherwise for fresh I take my BMX108's)

 

The Obsethed is rockered and soft - powder ski for screwing around. I had the older (09/10) version that had camber and they were a blast when there were freshies out. I've skied the later one which has less camber and they were also a blast, but more powder oriented.

LP 115 is a straight', medium flex, dymastar ski. It isn't a > 20m radius ski. Much truth here:

More skis going on sale around here: Line Influence 115, Nordica Patrons. Like the sound of both as versatile powder skis. Anyone tried both?
