A wise assumption😀❄️❄️❄️

Although I think I have dialed in the ski widths I am sure there will be plenty of skis that have different construction and designs that I will continue to try.

Hope to make it back to Steamboat this winter.

 

You will not get my fx84's off my feet (except for possibly upgrading to the 2015's) ........:D   Come on' back! Last time you were here I had torn my ACL.  Time to make some turns  



Edited to correct ski model but my bet is that before the end of the season, I will be on a 85😂

 

Lordy, and I have so enjoyed your most recent progressions, Finndog!  It's almost like watching evolution in action - speeded up slightly.

 

 I never did try the Protests.  But last year I did get an old, used pair of FX 84's (probably softer than your more recent ones, maybe more like the new 85s, perhaps. :))  Like segbrown wrote of the 85, a great, versatile, "cheater bump ski."   And it carves.  (The 84 a Chris Davenport ski, I believe.) 

 

Anyway, sorry I missed your old comments on so many, many past skis from your ancient, fossilized quiver records.   So much to ski, time flying by.

AWESOME! Its a progression, the big break through for me was getting my hip fixed. It really helped to fix a bunch of issues which was like flipping a switch when my leg tracked straight and flexed correctly thanks to 1.3cm's of extra room in the socket.  The protest are STILL a blast and STILL the most fun powder ski I have ever had the pleasure to ski on BTW.

Sometimes it's a revelation, isn't it?

Holes to be filled from things I'm looking at in my basement....

 

- 110: Atomic Blog -- super fun, playful ski. Tight turn radius would be fun in those steamboat trees. 

- 125: Black Diamond Megawatt -- for days in out with Powder Cats that aren't Spoon-level endlessly deep and may have variable snow.

You knew it was just a matter of time, besides you did fine with your purchase. But this is "No Limit Labor Day Weekend".

Gotta add to the list, help out (enable :)) @Finndog with his quiver:  

 

the newest Shreditor 136 Powabunga (the greenie boat), a great complement to the Prophet, I'll bet.

(Some guy named Andy Mahre 'splaining them, in multiple situations.)  

 

I gaped at a guy skiing these well on Pali, first tracks on that big wet slush/dump day in May last year.
