Interesting challenge...

SL
GS
SG
DH
Aerials
Moguls
Park
Crud buster (LP, for example)
Big mountain (XXL/Squad)
Something like a gotama (I don't really like that ski, but you know the category)
Spring AT (narrower waist)
Winter AT
Fun Shape (praxis/dp lotus/spat)

I'd love to ski every day so I could use all those. Well...not much interest in aerials or park, actually.

I have
Rossi 9X PPS 188 (may sell/trade for something ~180, too much ski for the East where I use it most. I can handle it fine, I just get bored making so few turns down a run.)
Volkl Katana 183
K2 Apache Chief 181 (may sell...differently flex and style than Katana...but I can't see myself traveling with both pairs of skis often)
K2 PEs 179

Good question indeed with a decent answer to boot ( oh wait, let's save boots for another thread)
Retro Day skis
Rock skis
Instructors often have beginner teaching skis that could double as rock skis
Rockers

181 Coombas w/dynafits (although I'm starting to think I might forsake dynafits for dukes on these)
Ak rocket swallowtails w/dukes
190 Moment Rubies w/dukes

186 IM 88's with p18s
191 Armada ANT's (the softest version) w/p18s
194 Squads w/p18s

Moment Comi Kazi w/p18s
200cm Igneous FFF in a 230RA flex w/p18


I already have everything but the rubies and the head's, to be honest though, I don't think I really want an 8 ski quiver. Too much clutter. I think I'm selling the ANT's to help pay for the rubies, and I doubt I'll be getting the monsters, if I had them, I'd probably only use them a few times a year.

Praxis Powderboards

PM Gear Lhasa Pow

181 Icelantic Nomad SFT

Line Mothership

Volant Spatulas

DPS Lotus 120

MX 88's

and some really good gs ski.

 

get as  as you want, but if I got a $8k shopping spree, this would be my list. 

post #37 of 41

I'll play....

 

170 Fischer Progressor 8 - Training & Teaching

181 Nordica Ace of Spades w/ fks 120- Park 

188 Rossignol S7 w/ Dukes- Sidecountry

191 ON3P Wrenegades w/ fks 155 - Everyday/Charging

191 ON3P Caylors w/ fks 155- Pow/ BC jibbing

177 Volkl Mantras w/ Jesters- Ski to leave in the car since its so versatile.

Armada ARG w/ Dukes- Deep pow/ trees

DPS Wailer 95 w/ Dynafit- Touring

 

 

I think that covers it pretty much perfectly. 

 

I wish I could have a  big quiver, but I travel so much i'm pretty much forced to have 4 pair MAX.

post #38 of 41

8 eh?  OK, let's see..

 

I would like a race-spec SL ski, probably go with Fischer.  1

I would like a race-spec GS ski, Fischer or maybe the solid feeling Atomics.  2

I think my old Kästles would double as SG and DH,  (would go for a DH and an SG, but when you don't get to ski on set courses and have to take you DH runs as they come, my 208 SGs are about all the ski I want to take through the bumps to get to or from the high speed lines).  3

I would want a big mountain charger, something like the old Dynastar LPs.  4

I would want a long radius powder ski,  I would probably go with a new wide not too stiff rockered ski, but a demo would be required first.   5

Short radius fat powder ski,  ULR's charriot maybe.  6

 

I would want a general purpose medium radius ski for skiing  with friends  my Fischer WC SCs do a fine job there, but the turn radius is a little on the short side, so maybe go with the WC RC.  7

 

Mogul ski  Hart F17?  8

 

That's all folks.  No overlap.  Got everything covered.

Just EIGHT pairs?  

 

 

Nope, just couldn't do it!

post #40 of 41

thank god for this post: enough of my drinking the '1 ski quiver' koolade

..now i won't feel so 'dated' if I do want to buy 1-2 more pairs of skis

so i'll be up to 3-4 sets...and can thus toss aside my delusional search for the 1 quiver nirvana.

 

but having 8 pairs?!...wtf!...that said, I would love to get up to 4-5 pairs perhaps.

 

my very limited closet:  watea 84 (168cm) and rossi b3-94 (168cm) ...trying to unload head monster m77 (too stiff) 

 

this said, I do need some good carvers to replace my (overly stiff) head monster im77

 

...so, should anyone wish to unload some atomic smoke blizzard g-force sonic or blizzard magnum 7.6 (168-170cm)

(or something similar that is not too stiff) then let me know (I'm only an intermediate but will ski another 30+x this yr

...to that way i can then blame you for my ongoing addiction

Coincidentally, that's exactly the quiver size I'll have to start 2010-11.

 

The Dad's end-of-2010 quiver

 

176 Fischer AMC 79 / Fischer 12-DIN Railflex demo:  Primary purpose is early season muscle-memory activation, but later in the season, for mellow days (especially when I'm skiing a couple weeks straight or with the less-skilled).  Also (thanks to Railflex demos) my loaner skis.

186 Fischer Big Stix 84 / Tyrolia d10 FF17+:  Used to be my go-to unknown condition skis, until the Rubies came into my life.  This year, I don't think I took the storage wax off them until February or March, and that was just because I didn't have time to wax others.  Now they're my rock midfats.

188 PM Gear Bro Model (midstiff) / Marker Duke:  Touring, all-around for days when I didn't feel like something as wide as the Rubies, lending to friends who don't have powder skis but have big feet (320mm+ BSL).

190 Moment Ruby / Tyrolia d10 FF17+:  New for 2009-10, and that season's default skis, particularly when it had snowed in the last couple of days.  But I really never found a condition I didn't like them in.  Ridiculously good edge hold, especially when you take girth into account.  A little slow to turn in trees.  Basically a longer and fatter version of the Big Stix.

194 Stöckli Stormrider XL / Salomon 912ti PowerAxe:  Ice skates and groomer zoomers.  But we had a surprising number of days that called for them in 2009-10.

195 PM Gear SuperBro / Rossignol Axial 140ti Lifter:  Slaughtering livestock and self-humiliation.  Got them at the end of the season, which was good, because I needed several months to get ready for them.

195 Praxis Powder / Tyrolia Mojo 15:  For the good stuff.

Not yet pictured:  190 DPS Wailer 112RP / Tyrolia SP130 Aero Demos:  Hoping they'll react like the Praxis in the deep and the Rubies on the packed.  If they do, I might have to pare down the above.
