Choice between 3 powder skis...

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Hello all! I had surgery and can't ski at all this year. As a result I've been sitting in front of my computer trying to decide my next powder ski. I'm replacing a 2012 s7 and want a ski that does as least as well in powder, but skis chop and crud with less deflection. I have frontside skis, so carving, groom, etc. isn't a priority. I did a lot of reading and based on reviews and "the deal" bought three skis. There are LOTS of great skis out there these days, but since I already own these, I don't need any alternate selections. I'm looking for input on the three in a compare/contrast type of way, but don't mind comparisons to others. The skis are:

2015 Black Diamond Megawatt 188
2015 Liberty Double Helix 190
2015 K2 Annex 118 191

Thanks in advance for the input! biggrin.gif

No one? Bueller? Anyone ski any of these?

My usual partner had the megawatts as his touring setup. Loves them for that.

You do realize that you just going to torture yourself until next season as people chime in on how good and bad your choices were and you'll start to second guess your acquisitions, fear and self-loathing taking over completely, ruining your life forever??

 

You said you had already done the due diligence in deciding on your final three, so getting more information seems dangerously pointless.  Certainly you're in a tough situation since you can't immediately move on to the next logical step i.e. get them on snow and ski the buggers, but to avoid risking your sanity, I recommend you simply store them in a place where you'll see them regularly, allowing you to fondle them and fantasize about next season. Don't take them to bed with you though - that would be weird.

Yea, rusty edges on skis that have never hit the snow. Gulp!

The smartest thing is to mount and ski all three, but I figured I'd throw it out there.
