May seem like a strange choice. I am 5ft 10 in, 150 lbs, advanced skier, I demoed the blackeye ti 174 last year - great ski - very smooth, cut through crud, some float on the bit of powder I found, and nice carver, too. Not too demanding. Tip seemed a bit floppy, but didn't cause problems.
I am looking for all mountain, some powder flotation, good in bumps, nice carving, power through crud, and not too much effort.
How would the nemesis compare with the blackeye ti? underfoot the nemesis is 98 mm vs 82 for blackeye. Would this make turn initiation harder on nemesis? Can you think of any other major differences I would notice?
Found a pair of 2010 nemesis 169 at a nearby shop - unused for $300. They have small bumps under the rear bindings, but probably that wouldn't cause big problems.
All thoughts appreciated!
