A local shop has a pair of BMX 88's for a great price, and there are deals around the net on LX 92's. Unfortunately for me, demoing these is out of the question as no place around here has a Kastle demo program.
I currently ride 2012 Rossignol Scimitars in 186 length and like them, but when things get firmer they leave something to be desired. I also feel they may be a touch too long for me at 6'0 170lb as they were some work in our tight east coast trees. On a day to day basis, i'm poking around the mountain looking for anything fresh but will ski the steep groomers and bumps if there is none to be found (which is sadly more often than i'd like).
As for length, I'm thinking either the BMX 88 in 178 or the LX 92 in 174. Do you think either of these skis would be suitable for what i'm looking for? I have a pair of Super 7's for the rare deep day here and going out west.
