Review:Vicious,Titan Nine,Mantra,Scratch BC - Page 2

post #31 of 44
DePierre Great Review.

DO you know how much the BLizzards are going to be? And now that you've had a considerable amount of time to test them. Are they keeping up? What's the delam like? It sounds like the perfect ski for me, I'm 190 pounds and 187cm tall and just like going round all mountain, I also go to Europe resorts where conditions are variable so I need a ski which will do well on icy slopes.

Very good review by DePierre!!

Just to confirm DePierre, the Blizzards were the 07 Titan Nines w/ the 92mm waist, correct?

I'd really like DePierre, or any else who has experience, to do as thorough a review of:

Nordica Supercharger Enforcers;
Line Prophet 100's; and
Scott P4's.

Blizzards I believe are going to be going for roughly $600.
Solid skis. No durability problems what-so-ever.

Gotama- I have not skied any of the skis you wanted reviews of, however I recently scored a deal I coudn't pass up on a pair of 190 Gotamas. I have one day on them so far.

190 Gotamas

DePierre:

How do you like those 190 Gotamas at this point??

It's been a week since your last post and not one more post on this thread or all of the " Consumer Gear Reviews".

This must be the summer doldrums?

Got one day on them up at Tuckerman's.

I'm using it as an all-out charging ski at this point.

Plenty stable, plowed through everything in sight. Softer than BROs, Titan 9, and Mantras, stiffer than the Vicious and Scratch BC. Conditions weren't ideal, but they handled everything moderately well, even the harder, crustier stuff. It's really hard to tell after just a few runs.

I will give a more in depth review once I get them where they belong if I don't end up selling them for some customs made by iggyskier(TGR, NS).

DePierre:

good to hear from you again!

For a while I thought you may have taken up golf or something.

What Iggy are you considering??

Have you thought about a DP Wailer 95 or 105 ???

Im just interested in where all the skis you have so masterfully reviewed were mounted as a mounting will definatly alter the ride of a ski. I also love my Vicious (just need some new bindings). Nick

Mabey since your a big guy a bigger ski is needed? I personally only ski a ski which is at least 10cm taller than me. :

Exactly.

I'm thinking of either his Everyday or Charging shape in a 186-flat tail, or 191 full twin.

everyday - 131/104/120
charging - 136/110/122

While we're on the late post theme here...

I'm in Vancouver/Whistler area and am interested in getting Titan Nines. Any idea where I might find them?
