Need some advice between 3 pair of skis to add to my quiver.
About me: 5'8", 150-160, ski 75 days in a good year and 30-50 in a down year. Mostly ski the 12's at Copper or The bowl and Steeplechase at Highlands (when not down low with kiddos). Not a pro or anything but hold my own everywhere in CO to include Silverton
My current quiver is a pair of 165 RC4 WC SL for super hardpack groomer days and a pair of 169 Nordica Enforcers pre-rocker that I ride 70-80 percent of the time. I absolutely love the flex of the Enforcer, specifically how stable it is while not being a stiff plank when not full throttle. For me it's the most balanced ski I've owned.
I'm looking to add a 115-120 ski for the days when I'm fortunate enough to get fresh snow.
I am looking at the Helldorodo and Patron from Nordica along with a few year old Blizzard Bodacious. All in the mid-high 170's length.
I've been on the Helldo and enjoyed but haven't been on other two. I value a ski that is more lively than super damp (think older Legend Pro which I wasn't fond of after 5 runs).
I think both Nordie's would be cool just curious to hear from guys who've been on both and wonder about the perceived pro's/cons of each.
I'm only considering the 176 Bodacious bc a rep friend will practically give me a pair. I've read that ski is basically a Freeride comp ski so I'm a bit concerned how nimble and quick it would be in the 176 length or if it's more like the older LP that wasn't happy under 40-50mph. And the new Bodacious is softer so a demo won't really give me a true feel of that ski. I have been on the Bonafide and liked it (but I like enforcer better)
Basically I want a 115-120 Enforcer with true rocker up front but tails that are still there to some degree. For a comparison I hated how soft the Rossi Super 7 was and felt like I was on snowblades with how soft the tails were.
What do you guys think?
