i have :
head monster im.77
...all in 163-168 lengths...n i'm 48, stand 5'6", and am rated as a good novice-intermediate level... ski west coast mainly: cypress (north vancouver), whistler, interior, mt baker...hope to get out 35x again this year (as i did last yr after 20 yr hiatus) to ramp up my skill level again another notch....took tons of lessons.
wondering about whether to have replaced my head im monster 77s with a similar waisted ski (they're a bit too stiff with 2 sheets of metal) or to check out this ''one quiver'' icelantic nomad (105mm underfoot) as it looks interesting...but is the technology nowadays such there can be truly an effective ''one quiver'' ski...or not quite?
They promote it as a 'do all ski' for everything: crud, groomers and even good dumps of powder.
a one quiver ski would be ideal, considering if you hit any resort when you're at the top of the mtn its often deep and fresh ..yet as you progress further down it gets more cut up and merge into groomed tracks.
