Yet another what EC ski thread

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 

Wanted:  2013, 2014, 2015 ski recommendations to replace 177 cm Nordica HR TF.    

 

*Slightly* better in bumps than an HRTF is OK, noticeably not as good in carving is not acceptable.

 

Skier is 6'2", 190# solid L7+ skis upstate NY, VT.     Demoed FA 84 Pro - did not like.    Demoed old Atomic VF75 - did like but did not buy.      Demoed MX83 - did not like.

 

Oh, yes, btw, he's ...not going to splash out on a Stockli.

Did not like MX83? What did you not like about FA 84 (not thatI'd have suggested it anyway)?

He says his friend is looking for a slightly better bump ski. That's not an MX, anyway.

How about a Nordica Burner or Steadfast?

No, he didn't.    And I have no idea what exactly he didn't like...but there it is.

Burner.   He might go for that.   178?

Update:  

 

He was almost ready to pull the plug on a pair of VWerks RTM 84s after skiing those and a pair of Rictor 82s.   

Then he proceeded to blow out an MCL on a pair of Rossi E80s - in rental boots! - season over, hope you guys have suggestions for next season.
