Snoozer attempt at a do-it-all ski, not even remotely adequate for powder, probably OK for bumps. Pass unless I was looking for a "safe buy". Wake me up when we get there?
I want this one.
Slightly more versatile than #1, less hardpack cruising fun, probably more bump fun. Meh, in a "might choose it for slush bump day" way.
2nd choice. Better hardpack behavior than #4, not as good as #1. Not as versatile in turn shape as #3.
What do I win?
you can haz cookie, you have also out nerded everyone on here(but me!) and your awesome like that.
the thing is a ski shape isnt the only thing that matters in how it performs. If it was it would be as simple as looking at the dimension you have listed. Lucky for you I know what all these skis are but number 2.
1. Head Peak 88 - kinda of a boat for EC unless you buy it to short, best longer turn off the bunch better than better in crud than the kendo, but overall I think its not what you want.
2. Fisher Watea 84 or Nordica HR (and all the models) to show how different and flawed a ski dimension poll is both of them blow and suck which isnt even possible. the 84 are the best bump skis listed but suck at just about everything else compared to the other more capable skis in this list.
3. Volkl Kendo - probably the best one mentioned for all around east coast skiing wont be as good as 4 or 5 in powder
4. Line P90 - good skis just kinda of meh like comprex say probably the best off trail skis here along with the Pilgrims
5 .Icelandtic Pilgrims - very fun skis more lively and less damp than the P90
Number 3 is IMO probably going to be proven to be what will fall nicely into what your skiing. Probably in a 170 or 177 size.
