Thanks everyone for all your help. I have really enjoyed everyones comments and points. I have been busy starting a new job so I havn't checked this for a a few days. I was suprised by the number of posts. I really think the 90 mm waist of my daughters Rossi Scratch BCs is sufficient. However there has been some really deep days in which she could could use more. Can she get by fine with what she has? Yes, no question. Would she enjoy a longer fatter ski? I would say yes she propbably would. I noticed a very big difference in the powder when she went from her old Volkl Supersport Jrs. to the Rossi's. I mentioned to her that she could probably get whatever she wanted because we could sell her supersports and her Sratch's. She said she was keeping her sratches not matter what. So if she gets something new it will have to be wide enough that there is not a lot of overlap. She doesn't do anything in the park. She rarely skis with anybody but me because she says all her friends are too slow. Maybe that will change in the next few years as she gets a little older and her old man isn't "as cool" any more. I still think something wide and soft in about a 165 would be perfect for her. I would consider the 175 Praxix Powders but just cant get over how long 175 sounds. She is quite tall for her age and is in really good shape (she swims competitivley and plays basketball as well). It seems a little crazy to me as well to be spending so much money on a quiver for a kid. But is is something we love to do together and I don't know if there is any amount of money that I wouldn't pay to continue such a relationship. Besides I just finished up my Doctorate degree and while I am not rich by any means I am makeing more money then I ever have but still living in the same house and driving the same car. So I do have some extra money to use. The smile I would get out of having us both set up with brand new matching Praxis would be worth it.
