I am afraid that I may be a gear whore!
I just bought a pair of Liberty Sequence skis from STP, because I read good reviews and the price was irresistible.
The problem is that I am not sure whether this purchase makes any sense, in view of the other skis that I own. They fit between two skis in my quiver, but may actually be too close to one of them (the BMX 98) to be of any real use.
My daily driver is a pair of Dynastar Legend Mythic Rider. Full camber. 88 mm at the waist. 21 m turn radius. A "charger" type of ski. Very good on groomers and in crud, decent in powder. A bit stiff for tight trees and bumps. In spite of being 5 years old, they are in excellent shape and nowhere near done.
I also own a pair of Kastle BMX 98. Slight tip rocker. 98 mm at the waist and 24 mm turn radius. This is a ski that is softer that the MR, and also easier to throw sideways in tight bumps and trees. Not as stable a carver as the MR.
The Liberty Sequence is 95 mm at the waist, and has a 19 mm turn radius. It has low camber and a bit of tip rocker and twin tips. It seems even softer than the BMX 98. I have not skied it yet. No bindings have been mounted.
The question is whether it will be too similar in use and performance to the BMX 98 to justify its presence in my quiver. What do you guys (and gals) think?
BTW, I also have wider powder skis, but that is irrelevant.
