Great performance , tecnica design is outstanding

(2nd widest is only 115mm )post #3 of 655/4/13 at 6:51am
this may come of a shock to some.
My widest ski right now is 110 mm underfoot.
My quiver that I kept is
88 Blizard Brahma
98 blizzard the one
110 Rossi sickle
112 Nordica Patron will be added sickle may stay or leave not sure yet.
something 80mm under foot with full CAMBER
and something 100-110 underfoot with tip rocker and little if none tail rocker., stiff.
the huge powder skis always seem like to much to keep around...post #4 of 655/4/13 at 6:53ampost #5 of 655/4/13 at 6:56ampost #6 of 655/4/13 at 7:15ampost #7 of 655/4/13 at 7:28am118 mm Bluehouse Maestro is my ski for most days, but I ski an area that gets a ton of light snow, and the mountain has unavoidable green pitch areas, so the float really comes in handy. For their size, these skis are quite good at hard pack and really fun in moguls.post #8 of 655/4/13 at 7:33ampost #9 of 655/4/13 at 8:09ampost #10 of 655/4/13 at 8:15ampost #11 of 655/4/13 at 8:51am
I haven't skied west of North Carolina or north of PA this millennium. I have arrived early to a couple of 18"-20" dumps at Beech. 99 suites me fine. I'd probably enjoy trying something fatter for kicks, but can't justify the expense to keep them in North Carolina. I got the 999s with bindings for $179 delivered (EVO demo fleet year end closeout). I'm glad I did get lucky there because I have actually found use from them twice hahaha., Just $90 per day so far LOL!post #12 of 655/4/13 at 9:02am
Super-7 (the old one with the way-out-there graphics) at 195 cm. 117 mm underfoot.
FWIW I prefer the wide-tip / pin-tail design of the old S7 line. They respond better than most powder-oriented skis when driven from the shin/shovel, and you can intentionally "sink" that pin tail to check speed without putting them sideways in certain circumstances.post #13 of 655/4/13 at 9:09ampost #14 of 655/4/13 at 9:49ampost #15 of 655/4/13 at 10:49ampost #16 of 655/4/13 at 11:00ampost #17 of 655/4/13 at 11:57ampost #18 of 655/4/13 at 1:39pmpost #19 of 655/4/13 at 2:07pmpost #20 of 655/4/13 at 2:39pm

I am 6' 3"and 255 lbs, wide skis made a huge difference for me. Makes powder play instead of work! I ski two resorts primarily and leave my gear there so many categories I have double equipment. The first three are storm day boards, the second two are after storm skis that work better on groomers and powder.post #21 of 655/4/13 at 2:56pmpost #22 of 655/4/13 at 3:00pmpost #23 of 655/4/13 at 3:41pm
Salomon Czar 174 cm, 108 underfoot.
Seems wide enough for me, but I haven't skied it in super deep snow, and the snow we get around Tahoe is usually pretty wet.
I like them a lot in powder and soft snow, but they have too much tip rocker for variable conditionspost #24 of 655/4/13 at 4:00pmpost #25 of 655/4/13 at 9:11pmpost #26 of 655/4/13 at 9:15pmpost #27 of 655/4/13 at 9:20pmQuote:
That skinny li'll thing? Widest powder ski in my house is the 180 underfoot Garywayne. Never broke it out this year though.
But my normal good day skis are Praxis Powder Boards (138) or Praxis Protests (128). Actually, the Protests come out on a whole lot of days...post #28 of 655/4/13 at 9:33pmQuote:
Well I'll be damned...guess I know what my next year's fat skis should be...strap on a pair of wooden bench seats and the game is on!post #29 of 655/4/13 at 11:45pm
