Line sick day 95 vs atomic vantage theory for a one ski quiver.

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Line sick day 95 got ski of the year award but when you dive into the last three years of free skier magazine, some UK magazines, plus other reviews the atomic vantage theory's just gets a huge praise. So looking for some opinions from people that have been able to compare the two models. My very aggressive and strong wife just loves her new atomic elysians, I thought they were going to be to soft for her but hell no. I was thinking sick day but after seeing her rip that atomic it has me wondering...

I can't say anything about the Lines, but I demoed both the Theory and Ritual last year and now own a pair of Rituals.  The Theory was not responsive enough for me, but the Ritual was and is excellent.  When I demo a ski, if it doesn't make me say "Wow" within two runs, I'm done with it.  The problem might be that the Theory is to close in width to my Nordica Steadfasts and I didn't think the Theory handled as well in trees or bumps and it certainly didn't carve as well.  The Ritual is better in the trees and bumps than the Theory and carves as least as well, if not better.  The Ritual is 8mm wider underfoot than the Theory, but in my opinion it is more responsive and is just a better all around ski.  YMMV

I'm wanting to stay a little bit narrower than ritual, I looked at the alibi but it gets poor reviews from a broad range of magazines, online forums, and other reviewers for some reason. So I will stay with Line sick day 95, Theory, or keep skiing my bonafide here and there until I can unload it. I got a sweet deal on it so I won't lose much. Also thought of lighter kabookie for my knee but blister gears thorough review still struggled to why such a heavy swing weight. I have a JJ, and a big akjj so I don't want to stay wide waisted.
