2016 Quiver Thread

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

The shameless, extroverted quiver thread is all very well and good, but I think we need a thread covering the quiver you're likely to use this season. Whataya got that you'll ski?

 

Here's mine, in acquisitional order:

 

 

Still looking for bindings for the Blossoms. Maybe Tyrolia PR 10 demos. There's some stand-height on them, and I don't need high DIN anything. And there's a cheap pair out there.

 

Grind the 4x4s? They're rock skis now, I guess, but they don't hold an edge very well. I'd assumed they'd lost torsional rigidity with age, but maybe it's just the base bevel. 

 

The Enforcers aren't just for soft snow (pax Realskier) — they carve extremely well when properly tuned (don't let the shop guy detune them) even on hard snow.

 

The FX 84s? I like FX 85s pretty well, but frankly, when I win the lottery, I'll buy up every leftover 84 I can find.

Nice shapely rack you got there Lakespapa. If you were Lakesmama, I'd ask you out. Unfortunately, I can only afford to ski on one nice pair of skis this season and will have to, once again, rely on brain quiver alone. However, that is not much of an issue for a one whore snow cowboy like me where a short on equipment is rectified with a little cranium insecticide. In other words, it's sugar for slalom, caffeine for giant slalom, ritalin for super g and speedball for downhill. Of course, my girlfriend, Mary Jane the Mellow Hurricane, is blowing a mild breeze all day long ensuring the full encapsulation of the cohesive capacities that slogging three pairs of skis could otherwise provide. So, while we may still be shopping for the same versatility, we are just going to different stores and you are saving a lot of money.

You could afford the skis on the right, I have no doubt.

Well, if I had to choose three shapes for everything, I'd say you have things well covered. Regarding that 4th ski, I think many of us had a pair of pending mystery performers waiting their turn in the closet. They look fun, in part, due to that I've never heard of Blossom Skis. Had a look. Interesting.

Normally expensive, but barely used 2012-13s aren't (mainly thanks to iriponsnow).
