Thread Starter 

181 cm

125-85-111; 20m radius

340$   295$

 

Really nice all mountain skis. Wood core and 2 titanal layers. Great edge grip. Great all mountain carver that is also great in bumps and trees. I know because I skied another pair for a couple of years...

I'm a big guy, east coast all mountain. Like to go fast. This is my daily driver. Nice ski. Good in the bumps and trees but can carve well. Like any ski with rocker, you have to pay attention at high speed. 181 is not a long ski. Exact same length as my buddy's 177 kendo. Hope these find a good home

I'm 6'1", 170#, and use this in 181 as my Tahoe daily driver. It is a really solid, ripping carver that has a front side bias. I love this ski.

I skied these with the full suspension ( M-Power 8.5 Ti FS) and the one with the piston under the binding system (Magnum 8.5 Ti S)... Was keeping this one to see the difference between all 3 but decided (still not 100% sure about that decision) to sell them new... They are the skis I compare all mountain skis with...

Bumps, trees, high speed, icy conditions, there is nothing they can't do!

Nothing they can't do?

 

Speaking as the guy who bought a pair of 181 M-Power FS from you, if these are similar, they'll be awesome.   But maybe not for the Clydes among us?   Weighing 220, I can bend the M-Power w. no trouble, and this is going to be a little softer, yes?  But I'm not competent to comment on how they'd compare in bumps.

Yes, they are the same skis except for the full suspension system bindings... So they should bend a tad mor easily and be a little more light and nimble...

 

By Clydes you mean lignter?

I meant heavy: Clydesdales.  If they bend easier than the M-power, that means better for someone a bit lighter or less aggressive, yes?  Not that I'm particularly aggressive...

No, there should not be that big of a difference... I'll put some bindings on and will come back to you...;)

Oh, no:  not selling them to me!   I like your skis a lot (spent about 95% of last season on skis you used to own), but I've got the M-Power.   Now, if you wanted to mount the bindings and then just ship them to me for comparison (out of the kindness of your heart), that's a different story.

 

Or did you mean you would compare them yourself?  Not as good, but I'd still be interested in what you thought.  :D

Why don't you bring the M-Power to Tremblant this season and we will compare them together and then discuss it with a nice beer! ;)

@mogsie how do these compare to the Head Rev 85?  I have enjoyed mine but since I got my Bonafides I have been looking at something like these in the Blizz lineup.

First, I didn't liked the  Rev 85.For me, it carve minimum ok and it felt like planks. I owned the 177 and it I had to try them again, I would try the 184 but don't think it would change that much...

 

The Magnum are way more like the Bonafide in feel. I always said that the Magnum 8.5 are like a more high end, a little more pist oriented Brahma. They are very solid with a very nice edge grip and you can open up the machine. They are also good in bumps and trees and  a lot more livier than the Rev...
