Newbie Ski question on Head I.peak 84s

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

New guy to the forum here. I'm just getting back into skiing after several years off. I talked with a local ski shop, and was recommended the Rev 85s for my level and skiing type (ie. go hard on my own, but also ski with my 4 and a half year old).

Anyway, not sure I want to spend 800 bucks on those, I looked online and have found some I.peak 84s for half that.

It seems these are a good ski comparatively, but I'm confused as to what I'm seeing. The ones online are called i.peak 84 flr sw. I'm not sure if these are the same as the "pro" which all the reviews appear to be on? Basically, what is the "flr sw"?

Really apologize if this is a dumb question.

I suppose if anyone has an opinion on whether or not these would be a good ski to buy at $400 incl bindings, that would be helpful too.

If you could download and post a pic of the Peak 84's that may help, or, if you can identify the model by year. Head made the Peak 84 over several seasons, many reviewers indicate there is very little difference between the Rev (new this season) and the last 2 years of the Peaks (no matter what the Heads ads imply).


BTW, if you look in the Gear For Sale section below, both of these are for sale as lightly used.

Oh, also, these were actually the original ones I was looking at, and the seller reposted them. Brand new 85's for $500.
