Nordica HR pro Jet Fuel or Sultan 85

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 

Have been skiing on Heads IM78 for the past few years (09 models)  178cm and have really loved them . Thinking of updating to either  the Nordica  or the Dynastar   Im 5,8   164lb   Level 8-9 .  Looking for something with a bit more width and float but dont want to give up much of the on piste performance  that the Heads have .

 

A few Questions

1. Is the 2011  Nordy Hr pro different fom 2010 model in construction

2 Does 2011  Nordy have any metal ( Someone wrote it is between the 2010 Jet Fuel CA and the now defunct Jet Fuel T.I

Any thoughts would be welcome Thanks

I dont know anything about how either one of them ski.  But the Dynastar has a cooler name.

I have a pair of Nordica Jet Fuel Ti and skied on a pair of Dynastar Mythic Riders last season.  I like both skis, but they are very different.  I preferred the Dynastar for general use.  The Nordica is pretty good  for general use, but has more of a hard snow bias.  The Mythic Rider was replaced with the Sultan 85 last season.  I haven't skied the Sultan but have heard they are comparable to the MR, perhaps a bit more user friendly.

I skied the original HR serries jet fuel 4 years ago. It was a stout ripping ski that had more of a stout race ski type feel than most all around midfats.

 

I own the sultan 85 and love them. Its a well balanced all around ski. They ski a bit short.

You have already gotten good answers. The HR Pro is a flat ski without metal. It is light, nimble and resembles maybe a Watea 84 that's been working out. The Jet Fuel is a different critter. It is a system ski with excellent grip and dampening but as mentioned, more of a hard snow bias. The Sultan is a flat ski with metal and a good balance of skills. (maybe the best overall balance in category)

Thanks Jim , I meant the Jet fuel CA  Has it changed in construction and performance from the 2010 model

I've forgotten whether it has the new I-Core, but it doesn't ski materially differently.
