Wife is gonna kill me but I just can't stop thinking about a crud buster ski, something to ski variable conditions without any/much tip flapping around...
This year I demoed the Cochise and loved, though it was a little short at 170cm, so I would probably aim for the 177cm. But I'm trying to see what else is out there! Tried the belafonte and it was just too stiff, but again wrong size 182cm, I would probably buy the 174cm. What else should I look at?
Other skis: Prophet 98 172cm, Rocker2 115 178cm (still in plastic, that's why the wife is gonna kill me when I show up with new skis at home).
I loved the 2 days I spent on the rocker2 115 so far doing demo, love the flat tail! and I also love how easy the P98 is to ski, but I kinda hate how much it flaps in variable conditions if I ski hard!
Also, doesn't look like there is much overlap for a cochise in my quiver, what would you guys say? I ski almost exclusively ungrommed and off piste terrain in Idaho (Sun Valley, Boise and McCall), not tons of snow, but good quality and enjoyable snow :-)
me 5'5" / 150 lbs quite aggressive!
What good crud busters in the 100 to 110 are out there?
