BD verdicts vs BD zealots (100 or 110 width?)

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

Hi all!

 

I'm looking for some opinions on ski width (figured you all might have some). Northeast, mainly skiing at the likes of sugarloaf and sunday river, as well as some backcountry (probably about 40% of the time).


I'm currently on fischer watea's (84 underfoot) and definitely looking to get something a little wider. Telemark, 22design axl bindings. I've been looking at getting either the black diamond verdicts or zealots.

 

Is 110 underfoot (zealots) too wide? Or would it be an ideal ski for soft / deeper days?

Would I be better off replacing my current skis (watea's) with the black diamond verdicts @ 100mm underfoot?

All opinions welcome, thanks!

Not much reviews to find on the BD Zealots.  I'm considering the Zealots, but also looking at the 2016 Blizzard Bonafides. I do a lot of tree skiing and some bumps.  I ski fast and aggressive all the time.  Anyone tried both of these skis?  Suggestions and recommendations?

100. 110 gets pretty wide for skinning. The old Zealots were planks. Hopefully they're better now.

I'm not a huge fan of twins for teley, but the Noridca Soul Rider (97... whats 3mm between friends?) would be great for what you're describing.
