Suggestions for a 110ish rocker to fit with a Kastle lx92.

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
I love my 174cm lx92s for everyday but need a wider, rockered ski to compliment it on fresh snow days. I'm thinking about something 110ish. Suggestions on models and lengths appreciated. 165lb, ski almost anywhere but not much over 40 mph, I break to easily.

I'd say playful, soft, early rise with some rocker on each end but some camber under foot. Primarily for resort lift served fresh snow days in trees, bumps and bowls but not heli ski or two foot powder.

I second the DPS Wailer 112RP. Most fun ski on the planet. I took a few demo runs a couple of seasons ago and bought them. Fantastic.

Steve, great to hear you are enjoying the LX92.

 

I'll Second, make that Third, a vote for the DPS 112RP as a great complement to the LX92.

I also had 122RP Pures when I had my LX92.

The DPS are very versatile, very nimble on groomers / trees, and floaty & fun in POW.

Because they are lightweight, they are easily "flickable" to change direction.

Sure, the original 112RP might have been a bit tip flappy, and deflected more in heavier snow.

But the newer "112RP.2  Pure3", or in Hybrid construction, should have addressed their initial shortcomings.

For length I'd suggest 184 -> they have a very short running length on groomers due to due rocker.

 

I have some new V-Werks Katanas 177cm that I have yet to ski, so I cannot give them props just yet.

Will have to wait for my ski trip to Zermatt in March !  But they get a rave review at Blister Gear.
My ski pal is going to buy new 112RP.2 Pure3 to take to Zermatt.

This. Or a Rossi Super 7. Owned a 112 RP. Disagree. Reasonably demanding when they run into variable snow, because the lateral stiffness is so high relative to the longitudinal flex. And resort skiing is all about variable snow, even on powder days.

Beyond, I agree with your comments on the original 112RP not being greatest in variable snow / chop / heavy snow.

 

I'll have to wait for my pal to chime in on how is new "112RP.2 Pure3" compare to his previous "112RP Pure2".  My pal had a couple phone chats with the DPS folks thinking he wanted to order the latest RPC, but they steered him into the 112RP.2

 

I wish I could get myself somewhere to try out Patron as I've read about every thread on them over the last 2 years.  And they are available brand-new for very cheap these days.  I prefer last years green & blue top-sheets.
