School me on Skis...All Mountain and Powder... - Page 2

post #31 of 35

For me, 110mm+ waist skis are for throwing into powder, and having a little extra lateral platform on rails.. but definitely not an every day ski. I rode Line SFB's for years (115 underfoot) as a daily ski for a couple years and while it wasn't the worst, I see now what I was missing by stepping into a little narrower ski with more metal in it. There's a lot more life in them!

^^ I don't think anyone in this thread suggested 110mm+ skis should be your daily driver.  Again, looking at the ORIGINAL POST, he wants two skis, one as a daily driver and then a powder ski.  I swear, half of the posts on this forum are people just trying to re-inforce their own decisions instead of actually reading what the person is asking about.

 

Also, Line SFB's are 108 underfoot.

 

And for the record, my daily driver is a 98mm Bonafide.

Not the 2011's. Don't tell me how wide my skis are. ;p

 

Just adding an opinion. Referring to the ORIGINAL POST, the skis he has been riding have a layer of metal in them, and so, he might find that jumping too far into a wide, extremely powder oriented ski would be a bit of a turnoff as there is much less performance there. They can't always be in powder, gotta get there first. I chose my SFB's after riding the Hellbents and finding I had so much un-fun on the way to the pow with the Hellbents that it detracted from the overall experience.

^^ Ah, right - I forgot they were that much wider until they introduced the Opus.  But my point stands, no one was suggesting anything that wide as the lower end / daily driver ski.  Only as powder skis.

I chalk it up to thread drift.  There were a lot of responses that answered his question early on (Bonafides, Rossi Experience, Helldorado, etc.), and after that there's not much more to say but respond to other people's responses.
