Blue Titan Nine

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
What year are the Blue Titan Nine's? I've read some great reviews of the Nine, and see a pair of the 188's on eBay, with the 92 waist. Just wondering how old that ski is. I am not familiar with Blizzards at all, but apparently they make great skis (from the reviews I've read).

That is from the 06-07 season and yes it is a great ski. There has been a little question regarding its durability, the top skins do chip and peel. The ski was available in 2 sizes a 181 and 188, both skis had slightly different dimensions. Fun skis and real crudbusters, felt like a wide GS ski.

I picked up one last year, mainly because shop guys out west seem to love it, and it was a bizarrely good price. Have only skied it a couple of times (overload of good high 80's skis, my fav width, and small mountains back here to use them on). Concur that it's a really nice ski; smooth and powerful, likes big sweeping turns, but pretty easy to get around. I'd buy it again if I were wanting a one ski to rule them all for groomers and backside out west. Too narrow for serious powder unless you mach them.

Can't comment on the topsheet, I'm pretty easy on skis in any case cuz have a large quiver. Note: I have the 181, which is only 86 mm, I think about 18 or 19 radius. I've heard that the longer version, 92 mm waist, is a whole different animal, eats whole mountains in a single gulp. And then there's the darker blue Pro, which eats LP's for breakfast...

I've got a set of piss green T9's I got off eBay last spring. The seem like they'll be a great ski - I can't wait to get on them. They're the longest alpine skis I have in my quiver right now @ 181cm.

I have the blue 181's. My topsheet has been fine. I like the skis. They ski like Phil says, a wide GS ski. I really like them. I find them to be very stiff and respond well to speed. If you want to doddle down the mountain stay away from these. I've never had a ski that charges through the crud as well as these.

Too narrow for the deep powder although I had them on my feet at Fernie for a couple of epic snow days last year and had fun.

I skied the 188's a lot last year and the tops do chip easily. But it is a great ski. More on piste than off. Probably my go to groomer ski.

i have the 181 as about the only non-race ski in my quiver. Like others have said skis like a good GS ski but I have been very happy with its performance all over the mountain. I haven't (yet) seen any real issues with teh top surface

drilled 1X and only skied 3 days, so they are pretty damn fine, condition wise.

I mentioned earlier I had no topsheet problems.  It started delaminating last weekend so I guess the reports were true.  I still like the skis though.

Yeah, shame, they were sweet skis, much better than the Cronos but not as nice as the Magnum 8.7
