Moment Exit World vs. Rossignol Super 7 2014

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 

Have anybody tried or have opinion about these two skies? What is the difference or similarieties?

How would these 2 skies perform as resort powder skies?

I would probably consider to put a Salomon Guardian binding on either pair but do not consider Dynafit just yet (too expensive, have to buy new boots + bindings).

 

thank you,

 

Oleg

The odds that anyone has actually skied both these is, oh, maybe 1/289,347,723. 

 

And anyway, unclear why you want AT bindings if these are to be resort skis. How often do you skin inbounds? 

 

But carry on....

When the lifts are on wind-hold?  :D

 

I've got guardians on my new Super-7's but I have't been able to get them out in even remotely deep powder yet.  I took them out on a super-firm day when it was -35 wind-chill, and there were sneaky patches of thick, breakable crust here and there.  They weren't all that fun then.

 

My other days this year have been on my Atomic DD82's, and to a lesser extent, my 4FRNT Cody's.  I can't wait to try the Super-7 in something even approximating the conditions they were designed for!

 

I was curious about the Moment Exit World, too...

to beyond, I don't ski outbounds (beyond borders of the resort) at all, I am just a pre-beginner in that category.

But I though that 115+ mm under the foot is too much ski for just a resort and to track some snow I would need to do some walking from the lift, that is why the AT binding came in mind...

I don't understand what you are saying. Why would you need to walk from a lift?

I am not sure if I would need an AT setup binding on either ski (may be just in case if want to walk away from the resort lift), but this is totally unnessesary and could be as an option.

However, I am debating between these 2 "powder" skis for myself, both seems to be good choices....

I believe that price vice Rossi could be a better choice (been a big manufacturer, I probably could find a better price on Rossi vs Moment).

But at this point, the snow is suck! I had visit Northstar CA yesterday and could not find any snow... So, I probably postpone my "powder" ski searching for a while and rent meanwhile if needed (weather forecast shows no snow next 15 days in California Tahoe region, and so far we have 8-18")

Oleg, I bit the bullet on some new Rossi Super 7s and have just finished hand tuning them and getting them hot boxed up. They look really well made. That said, up here in Oregon, there is almost NO snow so I'm still dying to try them. What a suck year so far.  I put the Rossi FKS bindings on them for my alpine setup…although they are light enough to mount up Dynafit bindings if you're really looking for backcountry access.  I already have a pair of DPS Wailer 112RPs so that is my dedicated backcountry rig. The Rossis are strictly for inbounds and patrolling.

Yes, this is (so far) a "great" year for snow... my local resorts (Lake Tahoe) have literaly no snow (except for the runs with man-made snow), so I guess powder ski is out of the question for this year... (still hoping it will start dumping in February).

So far I haven't found any reviews for Moment new creature "Exit World" except the Blister Gear Reviews:  http://blistergearreview.com/gear-reviews/2013-2014-moment-exit-world
but I am guessing I would have better chances to demo Rossi vs Moment (Rossi is just widely available vs. Moment) and if we would have snow in the  future (hope so), I would probably buy Rossi, not sure AT (Salomon Guardian) or Alpine binding... that doesn't matter for me right now since I haven't done any backcountry yet.

and If anyone has an experience on Moments.... please let me know.

thank you,

 

Oleg
