Spinheli - You have been saying how good the Enemy is for probably close to a year now, and I must confess, I took your comments with somewhat of a grain of salt - something along the lines of, "Yeah, they probably are pretty good for a TT".
Last year, our local ski hill wouldn't allow skiers into their park unless on TT's. This created a problem when I'm skiing with my daughter who occasionally boards.
To make a long story short, I picked up a pair of demo 173 Enemies in mint condition at Footloose last summer for just over $200 (with bindings), and finally just got around to trying them. The conditions were cut-up warm new snow turing into slop.
What a hoot! They performed exactly as you have been saying - "super fun versatile ski for everyday, all mountain". Nice in the bumps and slop, ok on the scraped off areas.
On my very first run on them, I was following a patroller that I know, and I completely forgot that I had TT's on until I got to the bottom and looked down.
I'm not exactly a young kid and have no intention of using them for any tricks more complicated than continuous on-snow spins and minor jumps, but even so, I'll be throwing them in the ski box for everyday skiing. I've got a bunch of other skis that I can use, but these will be getting much more use than I ever expected when I bought them.
Thanks for the advice.
