This is my second pair of BRO179's. Its been my go to. Everyday ski for 4 seasons.'
I also ski 194 OG Legend Pro's 188 Soft Bro's and 196 Carbon Lhasa POW's
I wanted to put out a quick review on the 179 Bro because with all the hype about Rockered BIG ASS Skis like the Lhasa POWs/ I wanted to reinforce just how solid a this ski is.
The ski is loads of fun on the Groomers / Holds a line at pretty rapid speeds up to a point (Say 50 MPH) Easy to change Turn shapes when high angle carving. Smear and slide very easily (No surprise edge chatter or Hook-up)
These are my GO TO Favorite ski for the Chutes @ Mt. Rose. So predictable!!
Easy to throw around.
Tree skiing is effortless they always let you go exactly where you want to go with NO Surprises.
These skis allow you to Ski Chop and tracked POW at a reasonable speed. turn where you want and again NO Surprises.
Summary This is a GREAT all mountain Ski for us mere mortals. If you want an easy to use Don't think about it, go anywhere do anything utility tool.
Look not further than the PM Gear Standard 125 tip 99 Mid 114 Tail: Do it all Ski.
And they are SO Frikin Light. Nice flex and torsionally STIFF to hold an edge everywhere
