Atomic Sugar Daddy's - what do you think?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
I own a pair of Pocket Rockets and they are by far the best skis I've ever been on. I'm tempted to pick up a pair of Sugar Daddy's this season for deep, bottomless Utah pow sessions. I've heard the Sugar Daddy's are stiffer w/ less sidecut - perfect for bombing high-speed powder and crud. Anyone skied them? Just how versatile are they? All mountain ride or powder-only sticks? How well do they hold an edge for carving? (I've never skied on Atomics before) THANKS

The Sugars are killer skis. I rode them a few time last year all in heavy cut up pow and they ripped. They loved to go fast and take a direct line. The do not have a lot of sidecut so they are not the a very carvy ski but they handle very well and are very stable. I could not fine a speed limit of the skis in any type of condition that I faced. I am a bigger guy at 200 lbs so the stif flex of the ski was great for me. I have talked to some smaller guys who did not like them as much because they are a demanding ski and they did not have the weight to handle them. Overall they are a OK all mountain ski. They did not carve very well on the hard pack due to the 99mm waist and lack of sidecut but if you just lyed down huge arcs they were fine. Overall I am going to get a pair of them but also something else for the hard days.

The big daddys are a lot of fun, just make sure that there is nothing in you ways so you have to turn. They like to go big and fast.
