East Coast one ski quiver feedback PLS - Page 2

post #31 of 34
I am thinking Blizzard Latigo 78 under foot. Demoed last weekend and was really impressed.Because my P90s are aging, My intention was to ski the Line Supernatural to see how it compairs to the P90. (P90s gone next year) What I found was the tip was to stiff for a all rounder. The Supernatural lite was much softer tip and better overall flex for bumps or trees. These felt more like the P90s i been skiing but little softer tip (not a bad thing)
Anyways my friend was shopping Blizzard for skis to replace his vintage skis (Blizzard rep quote) he tried the Latigo and wanted me to try. WOW I really was impressed! They were really turny and felt glued to the snow. I run them threw the bumps as much as I dared and had nice flex in the tip,more in the line of the FX84s that I use when we have snow in the woods or soft bumps. Bottom line I think these are going to be a huge hit in the east and at 78 underfoot you get the best of both worlds. I will be shopping for deals on Latigo next season

IIRC it was $620 for Brahmas, with Marker Griffons mounted for 337mm sole and shipped to my door (in 2 days no less).

Hi all!  thanks again for all the advice, feedback and welcomed ski chat. and agreed with all walterj So i pulled the plug and got the Brahma's 173 with marker griffon bindings also..  Local shop hooked me for $525 all in..  didn't think i could go wrong... and don't think i did!  I skied em on groomers  this weekend up at okemo and boy they shred.. conditions were icy and crudy and hey just took it in stride!   They are a bid speedy when skiing  with the kinder but so far so good and so be it!  I guess my biggest question is did i blew it by not going 180 length.. once again i am 5'9 ish  about 180lbs  give or take... but i was afraid of going too long  when i want to start experimenting a bit more in bumps and trees etc...  my shop may let me trade them but would prefer not to go there  unless I really should for whatever reason...
