First time poster -- new member. Terrific site with really impressive knowledge base. I've combed and searched but wanted a bit more specific advice...
I own a four year old pair of Line Prophet 100s at 172 long but am looking to upgrade to some newer technology. I purchased the Rossi Super 7s last season at 180 long and just love them! Terrific for those rare POW days up here in the Pacific NW or when I'm at Big White in Kelowna, BC enjoying the actual real thing(!) -- they work so well on the softer, heaveir snow as well as in the obvious steeper and deeper yet still carve incredibly well when laid over. The Rossi's cover ~70% of what I need... what I'd like to find is not necessarily a carver, but a 95-100 under foot that will hammer up the groomers and steep slopes.
I'm 45, 5'-10" at an athletic 195 lbs.
Pacific NW mountains
Groomers, steeps, and POW (limited bumps and glades).
60% front side, 30% side country, 10% backcountry -- somewhere in there.
Level: strong 7-8 -- always looking to improve my ability without ending up in traction.
I've been looking at the Line Sick Day 95s, Armada TSTs, and the Solomon q98s. Anything else I should consider or drop from this narrow list???
Any input would be much apprecaited.
