Comparable to X-15's?

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Hey I have K2 X-15's and im in the market for new skis. Im looking at Dynastars Intuitiv 71 and Volkl AX3. How do these skis compare to X-15's?? Im 5'6" 150lbs and a rather aggressive skier. The X-15's were 178s and were rather long for me im going down to 160s with eihter the dynastar or the volkl. Also what are someother good skis in this catagory?

Thanks
James

X-15 became the Mod-X and then the Axis X, which still is available. The Axis X is a much better ski than the X-15, more rebound, more power, yet also more forgiving.

The skis in this category:

Atomic R:9 (good ski!)
Blizzard Sigma 7.0 FXP Ti
Dynastar Intuitiv 71 Powertrac
Elan M10
Fischer Big Stix FX 7.0
Head Monster i.M 70 Super Railflex
K2 Axis X
Nordica SUV 10X ST
Rossignol Bandit X
Salomon X-Scream Series
Volant Gravity 71
Volkl 724 AX3

I'd bet that most of these skis -- no, all of them -- will outperform the X-15 in most every condition.

Do some research so that you get the right balance of features that you like in a ski. Demo. Demo. Then demo again.

Thanks for the suggestions! Would you be able to narrow that down at all to the better skis of that bunch? Thats a lot of skis to demo!!

I skied on the XP's last year and I am not on the intuitiv71's this year. I am the same weight but a litte taller than you. The 71's are a sure bet, they do it all. They are stiffer and will most likely have a better edge hold than the X-15's. Go for them you will enjoy them for sure.

Do you think the Volkl AX3 is comparable to the Intuitiv 71's?

If you thought that a 178 X-15 was too much ski, stay away from an AX3, regardless of the length.

I dont think it was to much ski at all, I could man handle it when I wanted too, it just seemed to long to me.
