Thanks very much for the list. If I wanted to stick with 80mm or less underfoot, what would your top recommendation be. I suppose it would be the Outland 80?
Philpug you hit it with the bad tune on the bushwackers, the third shop i had them in actually dulled the edges- a different ski and I am really enjoying them now- Some one else made the same comments-my increasing failing memory does not recall at present, but to the both of you-thanks!
PP and SJ--you guys should know by now that when your gore someone's particular ox they react badly--especially when the ox costs as much as an MX88.
OP--there's a particular advantage in taking ski advice from people who have a store full of skis and have skied all of them (well the adult men's skis at least) and also aren't going to be selling you anything personally. Most of us know about at most a handful of current-market skis at any one time--usually all in different categories, so we really can't take 10 skis in a category and say how they compare to each other, except by what we read. PP and SJ do the hard miserable work of skiing a lot of skis a lot, so that we don't have to.
Yes, it is a miserable job, but someone has to do it. Pick me, pick me!
Hi Chrissstanford , have a look at the STOCKLI Rotor 84 . I have them . I was a Freestyler back in the Day in Oz and still enjoy Bumps with my old knees ! , and they are a really good Ski .
They can be smeared and floated down the back side of the bump and are not too stiff in the tail if you get a little back seat . Good flex through the shovel and when not in the bumps will let you lay hand -down GS arcs on the Groomers ..... Great Ski , another STOCKLI thoroughbred .
I got mine , a 2010 model from DW Skis in Colorado Great Ski , even better price .
Good Luck .... Fatty.
80 mm under foot .. a bit too thin ,,, especially if you ski in the west .. greater width will give you more surface to smear (control speed) through snow ... this will allow to smooth out resistance ...
