Line Prophet 100s.  If you want something more similar to the PR, the K2 Extreme or Volkl Bridge.  At Breck though, Line Prophet 100s.

Thanks. Any thoughts on the 90 over the 100? I'm  5"10 160 lbs. And length, any recomendation. I do like the bowls and want to be on the fall line, which requires for me a lively ski that has enough life to make the turn quickly.

I ski the 100 and it definetely responds to what you want it to do. I'm new to ski'ing in this century and the 100 has been rock solid for me. Very nimble and stable.

at 160 lbs you could probably get away with either.  Personally, I enjoy powder much more than groomers, so my favoritism would be towards the 100.  And if you want lively, this is the ski.  If you want it to be softer you can opt for the Line flight, which looks the same but doesn't have the metal matrix.  If you consider yourself intermediate or upper intermediate, get the flight.  If you consider yourself a hard charger, get the Prophet.  Again, personally, I would suggest the 179 for you in the prophet if you are a hard charger.  I consider myself a hard charger, am 145 lbs, 5'8'', and would opt for the 179, even though I feel it is about a 4cm stretch for me.  If you are just on the upper intermediate side of things, get the flight in the 172.

This is very helpful. I have been skiing over 40 years ususally on difficult terain, about 30 days a year What is the difference between the 90 and 100? The flight may not be enough ski for me.

10 mm under foot. 90 for groomer preference, 100 for powder or burly preferences (if you are wondering if it's enough ski, get the 100).  I wouldn't bother with the 90 personally.

as i put it to someone else once, I would never wish I had bought the 90 so I could rip up all those groomers, but I would wish for 10 more mm underfoot for those amazing powder days.  In 2 years I would like my quiver to include my salomon 1080s, Line Prophet 100, and Praxis Powderboards.  If you can't tell, I don't give a crap about groomed runs.
