I currently ski on a set of Kastle MX83s, which I love for most conditions. However, I’m thinking of adding a wider ski for soft snow, powder and spring slush. Since I like the MX83s I am considering FX94s or FX104. As I have 83mm waist I’m wondering if the 94 will a big enough difference or should I jump to the 104?
I am also considering Rocky Mountain Underground CRM (101mm waist), SCRM (100mm) or possibly the P802 (96mm). I’m thinking of the RMUs because I rented a pair a couple years ago and really liked them. Any comments or advice on each model or how they compare to Kastle would be appreciated.
About me: male, age 56, 5’ 7”, 150 lbs, advanced skier. Like skiing everything: groomers, trees, bumps, powder when I can find it (which is rare), even ice and slush for their own challenges. Mostly ski out west: Colorado mainly, but also Utah, Jackson Hole and Whistler with an occasional trip to the Alps.
I’d like to stick with these two manufacturers as I’m already suffering paralysis of analysis and don’t need any more choices. Will be buying clearance or demos. Thanks in advance.
