Sorry to dredge up this post but I am about to purchase and thought u all might be interested. I am about to try these 3 skis, hopefully I will ski 2 tomorrow, and one monday morning.
Head Monster IM85 179 Best Price
Salomon PR 175 Middle Price
Rossi Scratch BC 176 Most expensive
I am 5'9 175 a 8 or a 9 like to ski fast and go bushwacking. I ski MRG as my main mountain but I am heading to Jackson Hole in the end of Febuary. I currently own Rossi Bandit XX at 184. I have posted on this topic before but deals are hot right now and I am about to purchase. The Monsters seem good, i hear they are stuff but I think I might like that, my Rossi's are stable and I am worried about the PR's in that respect. The one thing about the PR's I noticed is despite all of the negatives, the positives are so over the top. People gush that the skis make them better skiers. The Scratch BC I cannot get a handle on, I have read lot of negative and some positive about this ski. For the record regardless of the reviews I noticed lots of Extreme skiers use these like Sage Catterbrie-alosa. I probably mangled his name, anyhow any comments are much appreciated. I will probably try the PR's first because I am so curious about them. I am scared if I try the heads first and like them at all that I will pull the trigger based on the good price without all of the information. Skiing two skis so different should definately give me some perspective
