Sweet Daddy vs Monster ... performance differences?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Any Bears out there have personal experience skiing both the Atomic Sweet Daddy and Head IM77 Monsters, and how the performance, the snappyness, the feel; i.e. "the mojo" differs between these? Our family is heading to Whistler in a couple of weeks, and both of the above constitute my pitiful little "quiver". I'm still packing both pairs, and would like to have an idea of what's in store, performance wise, before clicking in. I realize there are equip. reviews out there, but wanted to zoom in a bit closer and get a perspective from ones who've ridden both.

Specifics are:
Head Monster IM77, 184 lgth, Tyro railflex bindings in the forward mount position. I've skied these a couple of years and really enjoy them.

Sweet Daddys are 181 lgth and I'll mount Look Pivot 12 bindings on 'em. Skis and bindings are brand new, still in the plastic.


Oh, and me ... 6'-2", 250lbs, level 6-7 skier. Thanks and as always, any comments appreciated.

I have both skis. The iM77 is an all-mountain ski, and can cover a wide range of conditions. The SD is primarily a soft snow ski. It is wonderful in powder and soft snow, but lacks the beef to do really well in heavy snow or crud. And forget about it on hardback, it will rattle your brains. Great in (soft) bumps though.

I'd say count on the iM77 as your go-to ski, but definitely break out the SDs if it's a powder day. Have fun!
