Thoughts on these skis? Kendo, Annex, Spectrum, Agent, G3

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
I'm looking at the close out offerings at a local shop for an all mountain ski. Here's what they have:
Volkl Kendo
Elan Amphibio Spectrum 95
Faction Agent 90
K2 Annex 88
G3 Spitfire and Zenocide

(Price high to low)

Me:
5'9''
165lbs
Advanced skier
NW skiing
Very close to 50/50 on and off piste
I plan to mount Adrenalin "resort AT" bindings and do the occasional short hike.

If anyone has experience with a couple of these and can provide some insights, I would be much obliged.

I forgot one:
Dynastar Powertrack 89

What much are they asking for the PT89? It's a really versatile ski. I almost bought a pair last season.

About $400. Last year's model.

Is that with system bindings or flat skis?

Flat

I really like the PT89 for its wide range but $400 for flat skis from the season can't be a good deal unless there is a more demand for skis this year with El Niño. Maybe just an ok deal.

I demoed the V Kendo last season. Such a nice solid GSy AM ski.

I stay away from anything that's 90mm.

Why is that?

We're selling last year's Cham 97 in a 172 for $299.

I meant "wider than 90mm so im not able to comment on half the skis on OP's list"...because I'm primarily a light and piste skier that hardly ever go off piste. I do have a pair of 98s however which are the widest in my quiver

We just don't get enough really deep stuff around here to need too wide. For the times I'm leading my kids around groomers or night skiing at Ski Bowl, something sub-95 seems like it would be the most fun.
