Poll: What is the middleiest ski in your quiver? - Page 2

post #31 of 34

My middle ski is 98mm

post #32 of 34

My middle one and only ski is 108 mm at the waist.  I'm looking to add a 85- 95 mm ski to drop a few millimeters off that average though.

However you need more data points for this to be meaningful, except maybe for Rossi Smash.

I think mode is what we're looking for. The mode is the value that appears most often in a set of data. In this case, the ski that is used most often.

So really, the OP could have been, what is your daily driver?

But nooooooo, the OP asked "middleiest", just to be clever.

Kind of like what I'm doing here:)


Well, my daiy driver may not be either the mean, median or mode.  It could even be the fattest or skinniest ski of all of them.  More likely that it is somewhere middle of the top or bottom half by width.  So, perhaps IQR is the best measure for my middliest daily driver

My daily driver is my fattest ski at 118 mm. Of what will be my active quiver next year, the other two skis are 95mm and 72. But they only come out when there is NO soft snow, and that's pretty rare here. :)

 

So no, its not the same, and I'm sure there are plenty of other people who's ski they ski most often is not the one with the midsize waist.
