Line Sick Day 95 vs. Atomic Alibi

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

Anybody ski both/either of these? I did not get a chance to participate in demo day last year (2 broken ribs), and they are both on my short list of ski purchases this year. I like the idea of the Atomic Ritual, but the 190cm length with the 103mm waist seems to be a bit much, and the 182cm too short. How does the Alibi 187cm ski compared to the Ritual? I assume very similar, but I HATED the Atomic Theory 186cm and loved the Atomic Automatic 186cm, so I am kind of lost on my Atomic feelings.

 

How does the Sick Day compare to the Prophet series? (I have skied all of them). The lack of metal in the Sick Day makes me nervous of it's crud/high speed performance, which the Prophets handled well. I like the rocker/camber profile on the Sick Day better then the Prophets, so the Prophets really aren't in the running. 

 

Other skis I really like: Volkl Kendo 184cm, Line Prophet 90 186cm, Head i-Titan 177cm, Liberty Variant 97 186cm, Volkl V-Werks Code, Armada Alpha 1 177cm, Rossignol S5 186cm, Nordica Firearrow 84, Nordica Soul Rider 186cm

 

Wish I had the cash so I could just buy the DPS Wailer 99 hissyfit.gif

 

Any input or thoughts are appreciated. If I rambled, I apologize.

Hey! Do you really think that W99 are worth money. I am reading a lot of complains about those skiis - seems that quality control is lacking at DPS.

 

Also they did not get many good reviews.

 

Regards
