What Fat

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I am trying to figure out what fat ski to get this year. I have been riding XXX's for the past two years and have found them a bit to soft as I can overpower them easily. I am a stromg skiier at 6 foot and 200lbs. I want something with a waist over 90mm and something stiff. I was looking at the Sugar Daddys but was also interested in the new Nordica beast 92's. Any help would be great. Also I live in the Northwest and love open bowls but in reality I spend most of my time in the trees.

I'm with you on the XXX's. A great ski, but a tad soft in the shovel as compared to the tail. Just seems like a strange flex pattern to me. I have skied the Volkl G4 for the last season and a half, love it. No complaints except that it can be a tad stiff and wide for the hardpack bumps. I just, I mean I just ordered a pair of Volkl Explosives in a 190cm. A bit softer, but mainly for deep pow days. Its 95mm under waist, and I'm looking forward to skiing it.

The new Kneissl Flexon Tanker.
That's one beefy ski if i've ever seen one.

How about stocklis? I haven't tried any of them myself, but they are obviously some serious skis. This winter I hope to demo the new Stormrider DP (New Asteroid) just for kicks. Although they might be too stiff for skiing tight trees.
