Atomic B5 Metron replacement

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Hello all

First post here. Looking for a replacement All-Mountain ski for my B5 Metrons. I have been skiing for most of my life but usually only ski 10-20 days due to where I now live... Texas. However, my job allows me to fly for free so I watch for storms and chase powder. My bro works part time at Powder Mtn so that's where I mostly ski. I have a pair of Line Prophet 115's that I use for powder and my Metrons for everything else. My Metrons have been an awesome ski for me but I think it's time for an upgrade and I'm tired of carrying them. They seem to be getting heavier by the season:(

Don't know if there is a ski made anymore with a sidecut like the Metrons (133-76-116) but they have been a blast to ski for me for years.

I'm interested in the Volkl RTM 81's or 84's, or???
Something in a mid 80's waste.

Any suggestions?
Thanks in advance.

If you like the tight sidecut, length, and carving predisposition, suggest Head Rally's or Titans. The Head carvers tend to have unusually deep sidecuts. But in all other ways, vastly superior to the B5's. Which I've tried, waaay back, and I've owned several Heads.
