Hi all, Just looking for a quick comparison between the two in regards to my needs.
Me: 6'1, 180lbs, 56 yrs young, strong,athletic, good shape, former high school racer, aggressive high speed carver on groomed but always looking for(prefer) fresh and/or off piste, don't seek out moguls much anymore, but competent when they're there. These will be used for my every day driver almost entirely in the midwest with trips to Jackson and Utah. Really looking for a great ripping carver with no speed limit that is a riot in crud and fresh up to foot or so.
I already have a great pair of Blizzard "ice skates" for the bullet proof days and if there happens to be a dump of any size when I'm out west I'll demo some fatties. So not needing anything wider than mid 80's or so.
From what I have researched, the Blizzards seem exactly what I'm looking for, but, I can get a pair of Nomads w/binders for nearly 500 bucks less than what I would drop for the 8.5's w/binders, thus my dilemma. My heart was kind of set on the Blizzards but the price point of the Atomics makes me pause. Can someone point me one way or the other? Thanks!
