The Nordica Enforcer is it that good? Oh yeah it definiitely is.

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 

I bought some Enforcers back in October and was wondering if they would live up to the hype.  Did they?  Oh yes and then some.  I have owned so many skis in the past 5 years and these might just be the best all around ski I ever owned.  Here are all the skis I have owned over the past 10 years:

 

1) Volkl 5 Star

2) Kastle MX78

3) Kastle LX82

4) Kastle MX83

5) Kastle FX84

6) Rossignol Bandit B2

7) Rossignol Bandit B3

8) Blizzard Brahma

9) Nordica Steadfast

10) Line Prophet 90

11) Kastle FX94

12) Nordica Soul Rider

13) Line Prophet 100

14) Blizzard Bonafide

15) Volkl Mantra

16) Kastle FX 104

17) Line Influence 105

18) Blizzard Cochise

19 ) Line Sir Francis Bacon

20) Atomic Automatic 109

21) Atomic Automatic 117

22) Line Mr. Pollard Opus

 

Out of all of these I still own:

 

1) Kastle LX82

2) Kastle FX84

3) Kastle FX94

4) Nordica Enforcer

5) Kastle FX104

6) Atomic Automatic

 

Out of all of these skis I am thinking as far as fun and most versatile ski the Enforcer gets it hands down.  I'd say that coming in second would be my FX94.  In anything over 8" my go to ski is the Automatic.  The Enforcer is a spot on narrower version of the Automatic.  I bought the Auto 109 but didn't like it. I sold it to my buddy.  However my Auto 117 is one of my alltime favorite.  I really, really think the Enforcer and Auto would make the perfect 2 ski quiver for outwest.

Atomic automatic is my one-ski western quiver since it crushes everything! Always interested in others experience, so what am I adding with the Nordica Enforcer?

Great Post, I have the Enforcer in 185 as everyday ski with the new/old Bibby pro as my deep snow ski. Noticed your kastle lineup. I was looking for something with a touch more bite than the enforcers for hardpack days and stumbled into a closeout pair of 2015 kastle FX 84 that I have 2 days on now as a frontside ski. Not trying to hijack the thread but would like to hear your input on where your FX 84 are used in your new quiver.

I am 57, 5,10" 240 been skiing for years.

Old quiver:

Volkl AC50 177

Rossi S7 188

 

New Quiver:

Kastle FX84 184

Nordica Enforcer 185

2016 Bibby/Blister pro 190

I would agree with you that for outwest the Auto's crush everything.  I would say though if you went outwest and they hadn't had snow in a few weeks and weren't expecting snow and could only bring one ski the Enforcer would be better.  I think that it has more grab than the Auto's and would be more fun in hard bumps.  I just think of the Enforcer as a narrower Auto.

Same experiences here. I skied the Enflorcer at a demo in Big Sky last spring. It was a WTF moment. Sold the Bramas and bought the Enforcer 185. So much fun.

Hi Spearhead,

explain please?

post #11 of 11

Hi Spearhead part 2-looked at your profile and saw the thread where you were selling a pair of 2011? FX84's Based on the old construction I would agree. Looks like Kastle modified this ski about 3 times. Removed the tail insert. Added a .3 mil layer of titanal then went to a .4mil layer  2013 to 2014 model. The 2015 model that I have remained unchanged from 2014. For 2016 they went to the FX85 with a .5 titanal layer and a slight tail rocker. I have a 3rd day on hardpack (man I wish it would snow more) and no buyers regret so far. Also like the flat tail. If you look at my new quiver I really like the progression in tail rocker from flat-kastle to just a bit-enforcer to the bibbys-rocker ahoy!! LOL.

I think that as I get older I am liking a softer ski. The brick formally known as my AC50 just got old. That also played a huge part in selecting the enforcer over the bonafide.
