I have the opportunity to pick up some new Line Influence 105’s in 178 and don’t know if I should pull the trigger or not.
Me: Ski around 20 days a year, high intermediate, 100% inbounds, 3 days of previous powder skiing, 240lbs, 5’8”, Salomon mission 12 fitted boots, current skis are 170’s rossi s86 for skiing with wife and kids.
Situation: two years ago I picked up a used pair of Dynastar Sultan 94’s in 178 at the end of the year with the plan of using them last year for new snow days. I never got the chance to use them last year due to work and injuries coinciding with the new snow days. So this pair is ready to go right now.
Intent: I need something bigger than the Rossi’s for new snow and got the Dynastar’s for this purpose. I can’t afford to have both skis so if I go with the 105’s I have to sell the Sultans. With this carrot dangling in front of me, do I stick with the Dynastar’s or go for the fatter skis?
This intermediate skier needs your help.
