I am looking to replace my twin tip 186 cm 96 waisted Fischer Misfits/Atuas which has been a good ski for me, but are reaching the end of their useful life. I bought some 187 cm Head Rock n' Rolls thinking they would replace the Fischers, but, although a well reviewed ski, I think I might be happier on something else.
About me: 6' 2" 190 lbs. Strong advanced skier.
I have and like my 191 cm Scott P4s (108 waist, twin tip) but would like something that is more nimble as a daily driver (although I did enjoy these in a variety of conditions late last year). The P4s are a relatively heavy ski and I feel that I have to be somewhat on my game to ski them well.
My quiver goes down to 172 cm Dynastar Contact Ltd/11/10 (72 cm) which may be replaced by the Blizzard Magnum 8.0 ti that I recently picked up cheap. I also have some 184 cm Fischer Watea 84s that I like some days, but find a touch long in the moguls when I am not on my game.
For my daily driver, I was hopping to have something that is nimble in the bumps and was thinking about 180 with a flat or slightly turned up tail or around 185 if it had a twin and skied short like the Misfits/Atuas do.
I have never skied a Kastle, but have been intrigued by their reviews. The FX94 sounds interesting, but I don't think I want to go as long as 186 in this ski or as short as 176. I see some 178 cm BMX 98s on sale for $475 and wonder if this might be good for me. Thoughts appreciated. Thx
