Scalce if you can swing it - get them to take out west with you
(assuming the length is appropriate.) I've seen a lot of people at Vail with them and loving them.

pocket rocket

Doh! Sorry I was in a hurry. They are 176.

I bought a pair last year and they delaminated. Solomon, Bless their heart, replaced them. They shipped them to me last week.

Hadn't been out on my PRs this year except for the real pow in the back country. There's something about that spaceframe that keeps me coming back. Just finished up the day by putting in 3 non-stops on the front side. We're talking in excess of 2 mile long runs done at race speed with dust on man-made crust. I can't belive the angle I'm able to tip that funny looking ski up at. If they don't sell quickly, mount em up and have some fun.

PR fun

That's excactly what I plan on doing. I have a friend who is a really good alpine skier who loves his PR. I thought I would get the Elan 666 or the Fischer 8.6 if I could sell them. The only knock I got against the PR is when I start to pick up speed the tip really starts flopping around. I am about 190 lbs and thought if I got a little stiffer ski it would handle my weight better. I would like some input from anyone who has skied both the PR and the Fischer 8.6. I aslo feel a little bit a responsibility to give Solomon another chance since they so readily replaced the ski after a product defect. They literally replaced the ski within a couple weeks.


Thanks

If you like the PR and would like a ski of very similar dimensions to the PR but stiffer (and wood core) then consider the Head Mad Trix Mojo.

This deal no longer available

I couldn't make up my mind so I just had the PR mounted for myself.
