RECON alternatives

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
I am about to pull the trigger on some Recons.

Anyone have a suggestion as to something else I should look at?

I live and ski in NC mainly with 2 trips our west a year. (10 days)

I like to carve it up and love the GS...so I thought the recons would be a good do everything OK ski...

I have skied the Crossfires and like them..I have not skied the Recons...

Also, any suggestions on best pricing?

Why did you choose the Recon (i.e. what is important for you in a ski?)

Mainly it seems like a good 1 quiver ski.

I liked the crossfire that i had skied on but thought it was too small a ski to take out west and I couldn't get it to make the larger turns. it carved up a storm, a little unstable at speed.

I'm not sure what jazzed you about the Recons, but my friend demo'd a year ago, in the interest of upgrading his skis. He was really torn between the Recon and the Head IM82.

If you liked the Crossfire, you will like the Recon, they have that family feel. MAP (Minimum Advertised Price) on the Recons in in the 900 range (PM Me for a price though). This years ski does have the new MX binding and from what people who skied this years and last years say there is a big difference.

Try a quick search on Recon and you'll find lots of discussions and suggestions. Far from my favorite.
