Nordica hell and back similar skis

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Hi all,

I''m 6'1", 190-200lbs, advanced skier. I ski pretty hard, but mix it up over the course of a week and I'm definitely an all mountain kind of guy - I like exploring, but don't want to give up much on piste performance and I can only afford a one ski quiver.

Given all that, I was looking at the nordica hell and back, and really like the look of it. However, I'm in the uk and CANNOT find them anywhere!

So I'm looking for something similar. I was looking at the blizzard Cochise, but I'm worried that they might be too much hard work, and also the volkl mantra, but worried they wouldn't work for any of the soft stuff.

Any help?

That model is discontinued, the H&B. They have a new series out.

This is a crazy good deal even with shipping to the UK I would imagine. Fantastic ski. Go get'em.

Great deal indeed. Too bad they only have the two shortest lenghts available. I'm 6' and 185 lbs and I ski the 185 version in Europe. Demoed the 177 as well, but prefered the longer one. And the OP is bigger than I am.
