Prophet 90 or 100?

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
i am looking for a new ski to replace my old pair of solamon 1080's. i have narrowed it down to the prophet 90 or 100. i'm not too sure just how much i want underfoot. i am 6 foot 4. i dont always get to ski powder though. it is usually groomed or crud. but i do want to be able to hit anything on a powder day. i can ski double blacks pretty well. i want something that will keep me up in powder and carve like a racer on regular runs. and it needs to be light. i was also thinking about the karhu jak team edition.

Great skis for Taos: Legend 8000, Legend 8800, or Sugar Daddy.

How bout a pair of bro's? I just got some 188softs that i'm going to mount some naxo's on and use it as an at setup. I think the 188soft's weigh in around 7 1/2 pounds and the stiff about a pound more. Your not going to find anything lighter in that size for that type of ski.

Just out of curiousity why does it need to be light? Are you going to be hiking with them or skinning a lot?

weight

taos ski valley has a ridge that you need to hike, and it is hell to carry heavy skis up there. i also have a place in creede colorado, so i do a bunch of hiking for good snow.

According to most people the Mojo is actually rather stiff for a twin. Not as stiff as the Karma, but certainly stiffer than most. Perhaps it was the tune not the flex?

Which Mojo's? There's a significant difference between the 80's, 90's, Supermojos, and this years 103/105 Supermojo's...

it was the mojo mad trix 90. it could have been the tune that was screwed up. i basically need a twin tip all mountain ski. one that can do anything i throw at it. i dont do a lot of park, but i do ocasionally.
