East coast skier. I currently own the 2015 Brahma which is my daily driver and the Rossi Soul 7's for deeper days or Western ski trips.
The shop guy said that the Enforcers and in fairness he only skied the 100's but was assuming the 93's to ski similar would be the ski I could have a lot of fun on skiing cruisers with the kids and charging a bit more on steeps, moguls, and trees. I like to ski it all but mostly search for soft snow if I can get it.
I went home excited thinking that I found the void in my quiver because if I had someone design a ski for me it would be the Brahma's easier going little brother. I love the Brahma and have a ton of fun on it. I'm 6'2, 190 and ski the 180. But the ski doesn't really come alive until you open it up. When I'm with the kids, it's more turns at slower speeds and truthfully while I can charge when I feel like it I think overall I'm more of a finesse skier. Plus the Brahmas tend to be a bit tiring when I'm lapping hard.
Flexing the E100's and the carbon Brahmas in the store, the E 100's definitely had a softer flex even though they both have two sheets of metal. I have read a review that said the 93 actually feels a little stiffer than the 100.
The other skiing I do is either solo or with my two high level skiing buddies. They do not ski Mach speed GS turns however when skiing groomers and we're mostly searching for powder in the trees. I can manage the Brahma in trees but don't love it, same for bumps.
Soooo, I'm considering:
Adding the E93 for most days and skiing the Brahmas on those hard pack, bullet proof days and keeping it on piste. The thought there would be do I go with 177 or 185? 177 with more maneuverability sounds really good to me but would it get squirrelly on me?
Selling the Brahmas and using the E93 for everything except the deepest days. The Soul 7's are fine for me I that regard as I rarely ever get a really deep day. Plus I just don't need that many skis for the amount of days I'm able to ski but we all know that makes too much sense. In this case I would definitely go 185.
Or, maybe the NRGY 90's are what I'm looking for? An easier tree and bump ski that's still good on the groomers?? Haven't skied these skis either. This is just based on what I read on the Internet.
Demoing is impossible.
Or maybe instead of being so long-winded I should just ask if the E93 and Brahma overlap too much?
Thanks for reading. Good to be thinking about skiing again.
