Line EP

post #1 of 16
Thread Starter 
I just ordered a pair of Line EP Pros and I have a pair of Marker Jesters waiting for them. Can you give me an opinion of this setup? I also would like some opinions on rockered skis.

Your setup is good, and rockered skis are cool.

I've heard not to center mount these for better performance, am I right?

Also, would the Diablo Hotforms be good boots to go along with these skis. I am an expert skier and the boots I have are a bit too much on the soft side for my liking, they are Technica Modo 12s, would the Diablos be a smart upgrade?

Dunno bout your boots and stiffness, it depends on a lot of things. How much bump skiing do you do and at what level? Also, depends on whether your'e gonna do a lot of carving or gates. What other skis are you gonna use?

I ski a bit of moguls, but not seriously. I only like to ski moguls when there is no powder or crud. The places where I shine are in the powder, crud, cliffs, backcountry jumps, etc. If it helps I am 195 punds. For carving and park days Im just gonna use my old 1080s from a couple years ago.

I'd go a little stiffer if you're not hitting the bumps. But don't go racing hardpack stiff. You'll need some flex for recovering those big hucking air back seat landings. If you're looking for stiffer boots, be sure to get them on the small side of fitting. What feels really tight today (tight to the point of feeling too small) in the shop will feel a size bigger after skiing in them for a week or two when they loosen up.

check out the Tecnica Agent 120 or 110 if you want a little bit more compliant flex.

Just to give a bit more background, im 16 and ski with a lot of force, so I think going stiffer would be the right idea. I have size 13 in regular shoese and this year I was skiing 12.5 (30.5) boots. The year before that I had 11-11.5. My feet grew a bit, but I might be able to squeeze into a twelve. What's your take?

Would going back to the 11.5 be too much? They are the right kind of flex being rossignol bandit boots. I think the flex is like 100-110

Actually, just tried the 11.5 on, they crunch my feet

Something to think about. EP Pros are soft, soft, soft. Did I mention they are soft? And they are rockered, so you don't need to decamber them into a turn. You will not ski them the way you'd ski a race ski - or an XXL or a Squad or any other burly "drive through the tips" all mountain ski. If you do, you will likely not be so happy with the skis.

You may not want to go with a super soft boot, but IMO you will probably not need or want a monster stiff one either. Consider checking out Salomon SPKs - maybe the Kaos. They may or may not suit you, but they are worth a look.

You might ask about boot "matches" for EPs on NS if you have not done so. It'd be interesting to see if there is a consensus.

Boot matches?

How much different are these types of skis than skiing the regular traditional shape. They look like they are going to be extremely fun and will allow me to do things more easily. I've heard that there is a learning curve from traditional to rockered. What do you have to do differently?
