If this has been covered in another thread here already I apologize. I've searched and read many useful posts but I still have a few questions. Any input would be appreciated.
I'm 6'2" 255 pounds. I've been skiing a set of Dynastar "nothing but troubles" 176ers. They have suited me fine. They always have seemed heavy to me. Never had a problem carving. Not very stable at high speed straight lines.
I enjoy playing around in the "crud" on the sides and certainly enjoy a nice groomed trail. Never been a fan of the trees. Got my first taste of fresh powder last year and felt "out to lunch" with my dynastars. I've been told I need longer skies by a few buddies who claim to know what they are talking about. I'm ready to update and feel like I'm a better skier now then I was a few years ago and updating my equipment will only help me. Just need some reassurance that I'm heading in the right direction.
I've had my eyes on the Line Prophets and have decided that 90's would be suited for the East coast skiing that I do. (poconos, NY, VT once or twice a season). I'm leaning towards 186's because I've read these ski's feel like a shorter ski because of the rocker. I've never skied a rocker before. Ideally I'd love to demo a pair before I buy them but that seems to be easier said then done these days. In the past I've struggled with longer skies(back before my dynastars) so I'm leary and on the fence of going longer. yet wanting the stability of a longer ski. I'm hoping the rocker technology will help make the longer ski's easier to turn.
1. Besides the artwork is there any differences between the 2011, 2012, 2013 version of the Prophet 90s?
2. A tech at my local shop has recommended Rossignal S3's. Input? suggestions? Any chance someone out there has demo'd both the P90's and S3's?
Thanks for your time
