So my new Prophet 90's arrived yesterday. I demoed them last year, but had to order them online last week since they were sold out locally.
Haven't bought new skis (for myself) in seven years. And I THOUGHT the Public EnemiesI've been skiing were 186's. So I ordered the Prophet in 186.
Unboxed them and - damn! These things look huge. Put em up next to my PE's and the lightbulb slowly started to turn on - ohhhhh shhhhh---ttttt!! Looked at the side of my PE's and sure enough they are 179's.
So other than feeling kind of stupid for not knowing that, I'm not really too worried. I'm not a small guy - 5'11, 220 - and I"m not going to try to rate myself as a skier, but I'm firmly above intermediate, ski fairly aggressively, prefer to be off the groomers, in the bumps or trees, unless everything is frozen up.
Will get them on snow this weekend and see what's what - but in the meantime I thought I'd amuse you all with my stupidity, and ask your opinion on whether I'll even notice the difference (not between the PE's and these, but would the Prophet in 179 really be much different for me than in 186?).
