I was looking at buying a new ski in the middle of the winter last year, but long story short I bought new boots and ended up enjoying my skis a lot more. Now I'm looking at next year and looking at another pair of skis. I own a pair of Rossignol Bandit B74 in a 178 and hey are are bulletproof. They're awesome for icy days and groomers, but they are pretty sluggish and unforgiving in the trees and bumps, so I'm looking for a second ski to cover the other end of the spectrum-- Trees, glades, whatever powder I can find and occasionally the park with a friend. I'm 6'3", 180 and a upper intermediate skier. I'll be skiing most of my days next year at MRG.
I have my eyes on a set of Rocker 2 100's in a 186. I've been scouring the web for a pair and I haven't found much yet- I'm looking for a sub $250 mounted pair. I think I've found a seller on ebay who has some, but I don't know yet.
I'm posting because there's a pair of line prophet 100's I found in a 179 for $200. I'm hesitant because I really want something in a 180 range, but I really don't know.
