90 mm waisted skis

post #1 of 15
Thread Starter 
Contemplating buying a fat ski in the off season. Not interested in a superfat specialty powder ski. Looking for a ski that is adequate in powder and soft groomers. Bump capability a plus. Would be part of a 2 ski quiver. My other ski is a B2 bandit. So far mojo 90, big trouble, and prophet 90 are front runners. Thanks.

And the question is?

What is your size in Lbs & height, where do you ski, are you a well developed skier or?

156# 180 cm. 50/50 west /midwest in days, but 50 % more hours out west (4 hrs/day is enough in the midwest). I would plan to take this ski out west and leave the B2 at home. I'm probably an A cup, but I prefer to go braless. I prefer to ski off trail, but not OB.Top speed stability is not as important as ease of turn initiation.

180 lbs and A cup is enough for me to know I don't want to see any pics.

you trolled your own thread

Go with the Next year 92mm waist Volkl Bridge or the K2 PE even though its alittle narrower...

Atomic Snoop Daddy. It's just 2mm shorter than your 90mm requirement (88mm), but rocks in the bumps.

snoops are weak. Sugars are very nice

The green Phat Luvs.

I saw a man on some the other day (he'd tried to cover the flowers with stickers, I'm not kidding). I tried to insult him but my companion pointed out I was wearing my name badge.

I wouldn't say they are "weak"...Soft in the tip, yes, but underfoot and in the tail they are plenty stout. As for bumps, they totally rock compared to the Sugar's, which the OP did state that bump performance was important.

80-90 mm underfoot...

Think of a smooth GS ski with a centimeter or two added to the width.
Check out Fischer Cold Heat and Hot Heats...Or Head M82's. Both are sandwich/sidewall construction. Supple tip. GS radius. Torsionally stiff. I think the Fischer is a little softer. I also think that the GS traits give a choice of turn shapes and sizes.

The Mojo 90s are a very solid, fun all-around ski. I would go with them.
